New Product Features for Container Management
Posted on 2010-11-07 00:00:00
Container Management is one of our popular Distribution Essentials. It is a must for any customer that imports.
We added 2 BIG features:
Landed Cost by Container - This functionality allows you to associate Landed Cost at the container level which means Container Management handles all math required to split Landed Cost across multiple receipts.
FOB Financial Receipts - An alternative to standard FOB Receiving, this option creates GL entries for the value of the items on the container (including Landed Cost). When the manifest is posted another transaction reverses the GL entries and creates a receipt.
“As a non-profit quasi-public agency, it is important to have a clean year end closing. With numerous funds to close at once, this has become easy with Advanced GL Close from Blue Moon Industries. Now that all the funds close to the proper retained earnings accounts, I have one less thing to discuss with my year end auditors.”

QualityCount is the product of the month for September.
If your customers want the ability to:
Perform physical inventory without shutting down their business
Create cycle counts with ABC analysis
The option to FREEZE available or on hand quantity
Full count tag control
Then QualityCount is the answer! This is what one customer had to say:
"NEI manufactures servers in partnership with Microsoft and DELL. We have over 15,000 items in our inventory, so we need to carefully manage our raw materials to stay profitable and satisfy Sarbanes-Oxley requirements. Senior management decided we need to find a software tool that works easily and seamlessly with Dynamics GP to enhance our cycle count process. QualityCount's features with Enhanced Count/Tag Sheets, automated count adjustments, and Variance Reporting were the main selling features of QualityCount for NEI.
QualityCount (QC) from Blue Moon has dramatically improved our ability to easily count our inventory and achieve greater accuracy. In the 2 years since we implemented QC we have improved our inventory accuracy from 94% to 99%. This improvement has satisfied our auditors such that we are no longer required to do full cycle counts each quarter, and a full Physical Inventory each fiscal year.
We use several add-ons to Great Plains, and of all of these products, the QC product has given us the biggest bang for the buck at NEI!"
Invoice Cloud's Online Billing and Payment Service Now Available to Microsoft Dynamics GP Users
Innovative providers team up to offer economical, easy start-up, online invoicing
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Invoice Cloud™ (IC), a SaaS provider of electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP) solutions, and Blue Moon Industries, Microsoft Dynamics GP ISV and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, successfully launched their joint solution at Microsoft Convergence, April 24-28, Atlanta, GA.
The Invoice Cloud – Blue Moon partnership solves a big problem for organizations that spend too much time and money sending out paper bills and processing paper checks. The fully integrated Blue Moon Microsoft Dynamics GP module helps billers save money, speed cash flow and enhance the customer experience by using Invoice Cloud to seamlessly move away from paper invoices and checks to electronic bills and payments.
The 4 top reasons that Microsoft Dynamics GP users are adopting this online billing and payment solution are:
1. Customer Demand for Easy Self Service 2. Easy to Implement 3. Lower Costs 4. Environmental Impact
This secure, web-based solution is PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant and custom branded for each billing entity. This relieves billers of the burdens associated with storing sensitive financial information and the related development costs. What’s even more compelling is that there’s little to no upfront cost and the solution can be operational in days or weeks, not months.
Gary Palardy, President of Blue Moon said, “We selected Invoice Cloud to provide this capability because it has several advantages over the competitors: SaaS is an IC core competency, no registration is required to make a payment, and their pay-as-you-go model costs less than any other solution out there.”
Blue Moon actually uses the solution to process its own invoices, so customers have had a chance to experience paying online from the payer perspective. Understanding how easy it is to use the system allows billers to quickly implement and guide the customer experience. More help is available from the “Payer Adoption Kit” which includes examples of how to present online billing and payment to customers.
States Invoice Cloud CEO Bob Bennett, “This is a great marriage of cost saving efficiency and environmental responsibility. Invoice Cloud billers and payers feel good about saving money, trees, and reducing their carbon footprint.”

In standard GP, when you drill back on a vendor payment - you only see the vouchers/ invoices paid - you do not see the credit memos' applied. With our NEW inquiry window, you can see the invoicesAND credit memos taken with a check.
Adjustments are typically entered using the adjustments entry window. However, if your customers have a large volume of adjustments, they may get a spreadsheet from their customer or design their own tab or comma delimited file. With our NEW import functionality, they can import adjustments directly into the Adjustments Entry window. Just think of how much time that will save!
At times customers need to change or combine account numbers. Microsoft provides a tool to do this within in GP and customers can use the Budget Ledger Account Modifier/Combiner utility in conjunction with the Professional Services Tool Library Account Modifier/Combiner.
