Blue Moon How to of the Month

  • select/edit all open vouchers from a single window
  • sort vouchers using 7 different sorting methods
  • ability to select voucher by their original batch id
  • view all applied documents in a single window

New Product Features

December 10th, 2010

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.

Product of the Month – QualityCount

September 13th, 2010

QualityCount is the product of the month for September.

If you want the ability to:

  • Perform physical inventory without shutting down your 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!”
