*Fun Facts*

When measuring fonts, ‘point size’ refers to the height of the capital letters (one point being one 72nd of an inch). ‘Pitch’ is a horizontal measurement of the number of letters which can be printed in an inch
Compact discs read from the inside to the outside edge, the reverse of how a record works

It is the start of a new year. For many of you that equals a clean slate….time to start new with your goals for fitness, for paying off bills and saving for retirement. What are your goals this year at work? Do you want to reduce the time needed to close your books each month? Do you want to get a new certification? Do you want to train someone in your office to be your “backup”? I had the opportunity last year to work with several companies that called CAL to get an assessment of how they were using their system, and help them to come up with new more efficient strategies. I am happy to report that after our sessions, they were able to balance their checkbooks (many were doing this outside of GP); they were able to reconcile their subledgers to the GL; and they were able to feel confident that their team was working together more efficiently. If this sounds like something you are interested in, feel free to contact us. Our goal at CAL is to be a resource for you. We hope 2011 is successful for you both personally and professionally

Amber's Tips & Tricks
Prevent Documents from Printing on Your Check Stub

Use the Payables Check Stub Documents window to edit check stubs. The Payables Check Stub Window allows you to determine which Vouchers, Payments, Credit Memos, etc.(referred to in general as “documents” below) will be printed on an individual check stub.

Each of our tips and tricks have been “field-tested”. If you have any suggestions for new tips, please let us know.

ISV Spotlight:  PaperSave Pro
Microsoft Silver Enterprise Resource Planning PartnerDealing with paper has always been a necessity in business, so the associated costs were seldom, if ever, examined. The improving affordability of document management software has changed all that, driving firms to analyze and quantify the inherent limitations and costs of maintaining paper-based filing systems. For many firms, an investment in a document management system can pay for itself in under one year, while providing a long list of on-going benefits. Perhaps the top three are:

  1. Saving significant money compared to maintaining a paper-based filing system (and it is easy to quantify the ROI).
  2. Making it far easier to support remote offices and employees, while reducing the costs to do so.
  3. Eliminating lost and misfiled documents.

Learn The Benefits of Going Paperless!
