Why Peter Pan’s cloud migration would thrive

Why Peter Pan’s cloud migration would thrive

Think happy thoughts. Peter Pan knew the power of positive thinking more than any of us, which is why if he had a business today it would have likely been a great candidate for cloud technology. You see, half the battle when adapting new IT, whether it’s the cloud or managed services, is going in with the right attitude.

One Sale; Two Invoices in Dynamics GP

One Sale; Two Invoices in Dynamics GP

Recently, a customer of ours asked how they can invoice two customers that were splitting the cost for one piece of equipment. Since selling ½ of this product/ equipment was out of the question, we had to think of another approach. After doing a little bit of brainstorming, we came up with the following:

1. Invoice the entity that will be holding title to the equipment for the full amount
2. Back out the balance to be paid by the second entity through the Terms Discount Taken field

3. Create a new invoice for the second entity, but use a Non-Inventory item (this item happens to have a period at the end)

In concept, this should work as both customers would be receiving invoices for their respective balances due.

David Gersten Highlights Voices for Innovation Advisory Task Force Experience

I was excited and honored when I was asked to be on the Advisory Task Force of Voices for Innovation (VFI) a few months ago. I never was much of a political person growing up and History was one of my least favorite subjects in the world. Then I remembered why I became so interested in VFI.

Having small school aged children made me connect the dots that the VFI items of focus: STEM, Cloud Privacy and International Trade all will create a better place for my children in the future.

Long Beach Entrepreneur Bob Bond Reflects on His Journey as a Small Business Owner

On April 28th, I had the pleasure of attending the 15th Annual Entrepreneur of the Year Awards sponsored by the Long Beach Chamber. It was a great event, and a great opportunity to reflect on the founding of Bond Consulting Services (BCS) back in April 2000. At the time, my wife Alyssa and I just had our second baby, and we wanted a more flexible schedule to allow time for family and careers.

Although computer science is foundational to every 21st-century field of study and leads to the best-paying jobs, most students won’t get a chance at these jobs because computer science is not taught in their school.
