Modern ERP Processes Behind Historic Scotch Whisky

Banking Industry's Fair Value Accounting (FVA) Conundrum


Every company and almost every individual holds fixed assets. Over time, these assets change in value. For example, real estate tends to increase in value, while vehicle values decrease. In the US, as in most countries, the global crisis has resulted in declines in the real-estate market and employment sectors. These declines result in housing and business property holdings dropping

Current market conditions caused the auditors to signal that Bell Canada was insolvent. f) With fair value accounting, due to economic declines, many American Banks are insolvent, i.e., the share values are not supported by revenues or asset-based mortgage holdings. g) With the drop in sales, many companies are unable to make loan repayments against Read More

How to Reshape Your Supply Chain Network (and Why You Need to Do It Now)


The landscape of the supply chain has changed drastically over the past five years. It went from local to global in manufacturing, procurement, sourcing, logistics, and customers. As such, there are some major challenges in the supply chain network: There are no boundaries within the network. There are no physical or virtual boundaries left within the supply chain. For example, the

example acknowlegment  the supply chain. For example, the customer could be in North America and ordering a product via the Internet from Ireland—but this creates a problem. Why? Each party involved is not aware of the rules and regulations they need to comply with, and do not understand that an order confirmation from the manufacturer is crucial to the retailer’s (manufacturer’s customer) delivery schedule to the end consumer. It is difficult to make the pieces of the puzzle fit cohesively. Each process within the Read More

Delivering Supply Chain Excellence


Gaps between enterprise resource planning (ERP) functionality and best-of-breed applications are diminishing rapidly. Deciding between the two may thus come down to overall IT strategy. If it is already segmented, it makes sense to add best-of-breed applications for specific operational areas. However, if a more rationalized common operating platform is the strategy, there are compelling arguments for supply chain ERP.

Threshold of a New TEC Advisor


I'm happy to announce the beta launch of our new tool to help people start their research and evaluations of enterprise software systems.

Vertical Marketing--What Is A Vertical?


What is vertical marketing? Vertical marketing is product and promotion efforts targeted at specific industries. Many benefits are derived from vertical marketing. These include messages that are better received, credibility, marketing budgets that go farther, less competition, etc. A common mistake is the failure to understand the verticals you choose to target. The definition of a vertical is not what the vendor thinks; it is what the prospects think.

example acknowlegment  a vertical. A good example is the market for manufacturing software. That market is usually subdivided into process and discrete. While this is meaningful from a product function point of view, it may not be very meaningful relative to marketing. End users do not think in terms of verticals. They do see themselves as a member of a group, and the definition of that group (see below) is what vendors need to identify as their vertical market. If you ask end users how they define their group, they might say Read More

How the iPad Is Changing Retail POS Systems


The face of retail point-of-sale (POS) systems has changed dramatically over the last couple years. iPad technologies, for example, have become integrated into the payment process at retail and other types of stores.

Profit Optimization - Can We Possibly Argue With The Objective?


The "why" of Profit Optimization is easy? The objective is to increase profits and we can all agree on that objective. The "how" of Profit Optimization is not so easy. The seemingly simple solutions are dependent upon each other and many more variables. Profit Optimization is not a simple objective; it is a very complex objective.

These variables are continually monitored with the price per seat being continually modified to meet the objective of the maximum profit for that flight. The why of Profit Optimization is easy? The objective is to increase profits and we can all agree on that objective. The how of Profit Read More
