A few weeks ago, I posted an article about a tool I’ve created that makes it easier for EnterpriseOne and World users to balance their general ledger (GL) against perpetual inventory. I also posted a screen shot of the solution, which all of us at Andrews Consulting Group call RapidReconciler. The problem is, that screen shot is now obsolete!

Several years ago, I looked at the inventory reconciliation headache and started asking questions. Why does a process that should take a few days end up taking several weeks?

I’m going to talk about that solution at Collaborate ’07. If you’re going, I invite you to see me. I’ll be presenting on Thursday at 9:45AM at Session 23770. I’ll also be at the Andrews Consulting Group/GSI Booth 718 in the exhibit hall if you want to talk.
