Elucidation...It's What We Do
It’s legal, it’s moral, and it’s important to you!
I heard the phrase used by one of those early morning show attorneys. It struck me as such an interesting word, not to mention that I really wanted to know what he was saying, that I looked it up. That’s when I realized that Elucidation is Accolade’s job. And it is why you read and need our books.
At Convergence and Summit, year after year, people drift by and shout, “We LOVE your books!” or “Is there a new one I don’t have?”, or “we love the way you write, you explain things in my terms, you make me understand what I am doing”. We like these comments and enjoy hearing them. More, it explains why so many people purchase our books.
We Elucidate…you learn!
Some people can work by rote. Give them a task and they repeat it flawlessly time after time. But when something out of the ordinary happens, it is important to know and understand what is happening when those transactions are entered and posted. The more you know and understand about the software you use, the better you can use it. Better, the deeper the education on the software, the more valuable you are to your firm.
You can learn by taking classes, you can learn by attending seminars, you can learn by playing in a test company, or you can learn by reading. No matter which method of learning works best for you, having a good text that helps you learn, carefully explains not only how to do a task but what that task does makes learning easier. That’s what we do.
From Webster’s Dictionary: Elucidate
To make clear or explain
At long last, we have a book on the Financial system for MS Dynamics GP in process. This book will include not only information on the GL but some of the supporting features such as Analytical Accounting, et cetera.
This book is expected in 8 weeks (mid-June?). Keep watching as progress continues on this exciting new book.
2013 Ready / Updated
As users adopt GP Version 2013, Accolade is undertaking a process of updating our books. Due to the way we write, our books tend to be generic and, except for the screen images, can already be used not only for Versions 9, 10, and 2010 but also 2013. You will find those books marked "2013 Ready".
As we go through and update the remaining books, books with significant material changes, we will be releasing versions marked "Updated for 2013". Keep in mind that if your firm is deferring the upgrade to 2013 for any reason, the current version of all of our books will provide significant information that will help you use MS Dynamics GP better. As each book is updated, an introductory discount will be offered to any firm that has already purchased a pre-2013 copy.
Here is a list of books that is Ready for 2013 and Updated for 2013.

Version 2013 Closeup -- Mass Depreciation Reversal
Opps! Ever depreciated the wrong group of assets? Or entered the wrong depreciation date? Editing those records one by one was a pain.
Now a mass reverse depreciation can be performed. This assists greatly when errors are made and posted. Simply click the appropriate box, set the reversal date, and all of the assets in the selected group are reversed.
Accolade's book Version 2013 Unleashed provides user instructions for this and many other enhancements in the new Version 2013 of MS Dynamics GP.
Use Accolade's Version 2013 Unleashed to Train Your Users
While there are plenty of lists of features included in Version 2013, Accolade's book Version 2013 Unleashed is the only known text that explains how to implement and use these new features. Every new feature of the application is discussed in detail. Images of the screens are included and documentation for the end user is provided.
2013 is packed full of user features. Yes, the desktop has change slightly, but the mass of new features is the real benefit of this upgrade. From fixed asset calendars to item transaction reason codes (and reason specific account numbers) the growth of GP has been enhanced significantly. But users need to know how to utilize these new features and how to get them properly configured.
Remember those times when purchasing closed a PO before accounting posted the invoice. That can be prevented now. You just need to know how!
Ever tried to drop ship a serial or lot tracked item? Now you can, you just need to know how!
Then there are the image attachment enhancements, the reconciled indicators, standard cost adjustments, using SSRS reports as forms, up-selling in SOP, and much, much more.
In the nearly 100 pages of Version 2013 Unleashed, we explain in detail all of these new features. Get your copies today and use them to train your users. (Volume discounts available for partners.)
Don't simply tell your users what is included in 2013, tell them how to use these features.
