Wow, look at me, I'm famous. Oh wait, what have I done. Are people going to follow me to the grocery store with cameras now? Probably not, unless the world turns it's attention from Jon and Kate to SAP Business One. But in our little world, this is pretty cool. Orchestra and myself are featured on the SAP site at SYS-CON. Check us out on the front page. As an FYI, SYS-CON is part of Ulitzer, which is a huge news site. It runs on Drupal and is reported to be one of the largest Drupal sites in existence, expected to have millions of views per month with over 2 million nodes.

How pretty. Click Read More to read the rest of the post... ... (more)

SAP Business One Landed Cost Video

Here is a video on Landed Costs in SAP Business One.  The Landed Cost document allows you to associate shipping and freight costs with the cost of an item upon receipt into inventory. The Landed Cost document in SAP Business One is a straightforward and efficient way of allocating costs, especially for those small and mid-size companies still forced to do it in Excel. While this primarily applies to companies that import goods from overseas, landed costs can be used to allocate freight cost for any transaction. Check back soon for another post on allocating freight costs in a mo... (more)
