Day 2: GPUG Summit 2016

Day 2 of Summit 2016 began with the GPUG opening at the Amalie Arena. The event opening was hosted by Bob McAdam, Vice President of Finance at Dynamics Communities, and Aaron Back, Chairman of the GPUG Board. The keynote highlighted the organization’s success in providing the largest GPUG gathering of all time. To follow, a quick presentation from each of the GPUG Summit 2016’s platinum sponsors, Fastpath, Rockton Software, and Metaviewer. Keynote attendees were also shown the plans for the recent and future versions of GP including the redesigned web client, the all-in-one sales document viewer and the simplicity of using PowerApps to quickly create applications that integrate with Dynamics GP. The audience seemed to enjoy the new features of their chosen Dynamics ERP.

The attendees then made their way to the convention center and surrounding hotels for Dynamics-related sessions. The topics ranged from sales, marketing and reporting. GP users could also be found within the convention center hallways and at the Mekorma hub, discussing challenges with other GP users and ways to improve upon them.

The expo hall filled with excitement again in the afternoon as end users were given the chance to explore solutions to fit their business needs. Nodus promoted their partnerships with fellow ISVs, including Professional Advantage, SalesPad, SK Global and Peak Engagement. Nodus’ newest solution, PayLink, was a big hit, providing Dynamics GP users the chance to expedite their collections by providing one-click payment hyperlinks within email and text messages. (More about PayLink here).

The night ended with the Summit attendees heading downtown for Rock-n-Rave and the Buccaneer Bash.

There is still a chance to win a GoPro HERO 4 at the Nodus booth. Stop by #837 and drop off your business card before the end of the expo hall hours on Friday, October 14th.

One Simple Trick to Clean Up A/R (That Most People Forget)

Nodus Technologies is a proud partner of Prophet Business Group. Below is a guest post by Prophet demonstrating a simple way to clean up your A/R.

Over and underpaid invoices are the kind of little problem that bother you, but finding a solution rarely makes it to the top of the to-do list. I mean, your options are typically a) making a collection call or issuing a credit for $.39 or b) leaving the invoice open to clutter up the Aged Trial Balance and Customer Statements.

Luckily, Dynamics GP offers an easy mechanism that will save you from chasing pennies and cleanup your A/R process. It’s called ‘Write-Off Documents’ and it’s not new, but it’s something a lot of GP users forget about.

How to manage over and underpayments with Write-Off Documents

Let’s say your customer receives an invoice for $450.27 and they send a payment for $450.00. If you can live with the $.27 underpayment, you can forgive the outstanding amount completely and apply the document by entering the amount in the write-off field of the Apply Sales Documents window.

The Amount Remaining is now $0.00 so this document can move off to HST when you complete the Paid Transaction Removal process, and will no longer appear on the Aged Trial Balance or Customer Statements.

However, if you’d rather manage over and underpaid invoices as part of your A/R month-end routine, you have that option as well.

Use the Write-Off Documents window to write off outstanding credit or debit balance amounts for one or more customers. You can specify a write off limit, cutoff date, and whether to create one credit or debit memo for either each customer or document. The debit or credit memos that you create will be posted and applied to the documents you’re writing off balances for.

Remember, this is intended to let you write off a few cents for imprecisely paid invoices, not to forgive bad debts.

If you want to get started with Write-Off documents, you can reach out to Prophet Business Group, a Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner in Winnipeg, MB. Or, if you’re interested in other ways to streamline your A/R, you can register for A/R Automation 101, a 60-minute joint webinar with Nodus Technologies on August 17th at 11am Central Time.
