Consider this...

Your team is currently engaged in a critical project for your top client. However, to ensure the project's timely completion and high customer satisfaction, it's imperative to expand your team. You're aware that the recruitment process is time-consuming, and finding highly qualified individuals who don't require extensive training, especially in your ERP system and your specific business, is a challenging task.

Or perhaps this situation sounds familiar...

Your ERP system is running sluggishly, and you're aware that there are updates available that could enhance system performance. Unfortunately, your IT specialist is currently occupied with other tasks, and there's uncertainty about when the upgrade can be executed.

Both of these scenarios reflect the challenges businesses face in our era of rapid technological advancement. To maintain competitiveness, it's essential to meet client demands and ensure the smooth operation of internal systems, preventing any hindrances to current production. The hard reality is that your success hinges on having expert staff who can make an immediate, positive impact on your business.

So, how can you consistently maintain the right team size and composition to address contemporary challenges when hiring new personnel is a costly, protracted process?

Imagine delivering this message to your boss or the company president. What would their response likely be? It's improbable that they would respond with, "That's perfectly fine; we can delay implementing this significant initiative that could potentially save us a substantial amount of money and give us a competitive edge.

Finance: Propagating Unused Sub-Accounts

You can use this procedure to find accounts that have a valid sub-accounts group but no corresponding general ledger chart account records. This action creates the general ledger chart account record for the account and sub-account combination. This action does not add the accounts to charts.

  1. Select Financials > Global Ledger > Setup > Finance Enterprise Group > Maintenance.
  2. Open the finance enterprise group and click the Sub Account tab.
  3. Select Actions > Propagate Unused Sub Accounts.
  4. Select the finance enterprise group and click OK.

Sub-accounts are added according to group if they have been defined on the accounts. The resulting account can be added to the charts.

Operations: Best Practices for Purchase Order Archiving / Deleting

Here are some best practices to follow if you are considering archiving or deleting purchase order data:

  • If Financials is implemented, we recommend that you do not delete order data in a fiscal year that has not yet been fully closed. This is because the GRINYA process uses information that would be deleted by this action. For best results, check whether the logistical balance for non-invoiced receipts matches the balance of the GRINYA accounts for the periods up to which you want to delete purchase order data.
  • When a purchase order is canceled, you can only delete the purchase order and the related tables. If only a purchase order line is canceled, the line can be deleted and archived.
  • Purchase contracts must be archived before purchase orders can be archived.

You cannot delete a purchase order (line) if:

  • The linked warehouse order is closed but cannot be removed.
  • The purchase order is linked to a PCS pr
