GPUG Academy - Inventory Setup, Management, and Reconciliation (August 2013)

Instructor-led training on-line!
If you use Microsoft Dynamics GP Inventory Control then this class is for you. Inventory is one of the few “accounting” areas that is constantly moving and doesn’t stop or pause for “month end". As a result, reconciling inventory values to the General Ledger is often a very difficult and laborious task. In this class we will review reconciling options, stock counting, and reporting so you can use GP Inventory Control to control your Inventory, not you!

We’ll begin the class with a brief demonstration of new Inventory Control features of GP 2013, then move on to the math of how inventory is valued using each method. This is crucial to understanding how your inventory should be reconciled to the General Ledger. Next, we’ll perform stock counts and share best practices of stock counts with each other. We’ll discuss how damaged goods affect inventory and values, experiment with various options for dealing with damaged goods (including In-transit Transfers and Purchase Order Processing Returns). Then it’s time for the main event, comparing our inventory value to the values in the General Ledger. Finally, we’ll review available reporting and inquiries to help make this process easier. We will be using GP 2013 for training, but do not worry, there will still be HUGE VALUE in the class for you and highly applicable to your current situation. 

This class will focus on Inventory - you'll be provided tools and information on how to validate and support inventory values.  We'll review how using Sales Order Processing and Purchase Order Processing affect the quantity and value of Inventory.  It's a perfect fit for someone who manages Inventory.

The GPUG Academy offers the unique ability to learn from recognized experts while sitting at your own desk. Most classes leverage an instructor-led learning environment coupled with hands-on training. You can practice the content and apply the curriculum immediately, instead of just watching. Classes are conducted with a combination of a conference call/VOIP, and a remote desktop connection. If your instructor uses this environment, the detailed instructions for connecting and attending the class will be sent a day prior to class. Because of the advanced setup required, if you register the day of the class, you may experience a delay getting connected and starting the class. We will strive to get you connected to the class as quickly as we can.
