Solution Demo: Automated Order-to-Delivery Process with NetSuite
The order-to-delivery process is full of steps and – for many suppliers – manual tasks. But how can you streamline the process, and what would that look like? We’ve spoken with countless suppliers throughout the years, and while their businesses may vary, the major challenges they face are similar. Common Challenges Suppliers Experience Lack of integration across multiple trading partners. Plus, each partner may have specific requirements, adding more manual processes to your workload. Lack of real-time inventory visibility. Have you ever sold something that wasn’t actually available? Lack of real-time data is often at the root of negative client experiences. Managing peak season order volume. More orders are great, as long as you can deliver packages on time during peak season and high-volume events. Advanced ship notice (ASN) requirements. Has a client ever canceled an order because she thought it hadn’t been shipped? The cost of not sending the […]
How to Publicly Share a Microsoft Stream Video with the "New" Stream
In the first half of 2021, Microsoft made changes to the way that Microsoft Teams recordings are stored and shared. Meeting recordings used to be stored within Microsoft Stream, but they are now stored in your OneDrive for Business or a SharePoint Online site (which is good news if you want to publicly share a Microsoft Stream video!). These changes are a part of the “New” Microsoft Stream or Stream (on SharePoint) that was announced last year and covered in depth during Ignite 2020. For more information: The new version of Microsoft Stream - Microsoft Stream | Microsoft Docs. This change introduces the following benefits: Easy to set permissions and sharing Ability to share recordings with guests and external users Provides direct OneDrive and SharePoint links to videos Meeting recordings are available faster The biggest improvement and benefit is the ability to share recordings easily with external users who are […]
How to Enable Non-G/L Changes to Closed Periods in NetSuite
Here’s a quick tip on how to enable non-G/L changes to closed periods in NetSuite! How do closed periods work in NetSuite? Once an accounting period is closed, you are unable to edit any transactions within that closed period. The ‘Edit’ button on these closed period transactions won’t show, and you will instead see a lock icon next to the transaction number to designate that it is in a closed period. Why would you want to enable non-G/L changes to closed periods in NetSuite? Perhaps you want to add a memo or edit a PO number without having to credit and reissue invoices. Additionally, some ISV solutions require this setting in order to sync their data with locked and closed periods. How do you enable the feature in NetSuite? You’ll have to enable a setting on the Manage Accounting Period page. To enable the editing of transactions within closed periods […]
Give Your Legacy Apps New Life with Azure App Service 
Legacy applications – those business-critical apps that keep IT people up at night fighting fires – leave employees frustrated with their lack of dependability and, worse, provide poor customer experiences all around. Essential to any business, they may have been developed years ago, and when they work, ‘they just work.’ But because all of your processes and procedures were created around the app, you don’t want to invest in a whole new platform.  Sound familiar? Does that mean you have to live with the app’s shortcomings or keep buying new server hardware to ensure long-term, stable usage? Thanks to Microsoft, the answer may be a surprising ‘NO!’  How?  Modernize existing .NET web apps using Azure App Service. What is Azure App Service?  Azure App Service is a fully managed Microsoft cloud-based platform for building, deploying, and scaling your web apps. The Microsoft platform has the following key features: Fully managed platform Utilize bult-in infrastructure maintenance, security patching, and scaling. Built-in CI/CD integration CI/CD integration provides zero-downtime deployments. Virtual network integration Run […]
Microsoft Search – The Ultimate Guide
During my long tenure as a SharePoint consultant, one of the most common complaints regarding SharePoint is “I can’t find what I need.” There are probably several reasons this may be the case that are unrelated to the platform itself (lack of search training, search optimizations, etc.). But Microsoft has listened and introduced Microsoft Search. Not only does this provide an enhanced search experience for SharePoint, but it is also designed to be a global search aggregator for all Microsoft 365 workloads. Currently supported applications include: SharePoint Outlook OneDrive Word PowerPoint Office 365 With Microsoft Search, each search result is scoped to the application where the search was originated. For example, Outlook will return emails, Word will return Word documents, etc. In addition to the expanded search options, the results are unique per user. Microsoft’s AI engine delivers links that are targeted to user activity as well as content that […]
Everything You Need to Know About Salesforce Multi-Factor Authentication
If you’re a Salesforce user, you may have received an email from Salesforce saying they will require you to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) by February of 2022. And . . . we think that's a good idea! As phishing attacks increase and the global threat landscape continues to change, why wouldn’t you want to implement stronger security measures? Here are answers to some questions you may have about Salesforce multi-factor authentication. What is multi-factor authentication? Instead of just a username and password, multi-factor authentication requires two or more pieces of evidence (factors). One factor is something you know, like your username and password. The other factors are verification methods that you have – like an app on your phone or a USB key provided to you. Interested in learning more about MFA and Cloud Security? View this post. Why should you want multi-factor authentication? Usernames and passwords are no longer […]
How to Empower Your Chief Procurement Officer
2020 has been a year like no other in recent history, and the US manufacturing industry has felt the impact. Declines in production, forced shutdowns and inconsistent value chain behavior during the ‘peak’ of the pandemic will likely drive industry behavior for years to come. In what could become a permanent change for the industry, most manufacturing leaders are reevaluating the role of their workforce. One way to enhance digital capabilities in the workforce is to develop an ecosystem comprised of today’s top manufacturing talent (like your Chief Procurement Officer, or CPO) built on the back of a world-class Customer Relationship Management system. Data-Driven Decisions There are a few common themes we are seeing more and more in the manufacturing world nowadays. The need for agility and accuracy in data management, customer centricity and the ability to make data-driven decisions seems to have taken over and remodeled company cultures. Furthermore, […]

The Importance of Data in Manufacturing
In a world where data consolidation and analysis are becoming ever more vital to business, it can be difficult to know how to best set up your organization’s data strategy to meet future demands. Furthermore, in the business of manufacturing, where there are so many proverbial moving parts and areas to focus on, it can be challenging to note the advantages and cost savings associated with a coherent data strategy when compared to other areas of the organization (i.e. sales, operations, research and development, procurement, quality assurance, etc.). However, having access to well-defined and accurate data can lead to insights and cost savings that propel a manufacturer to the next level of their business as well as outperform competitors, for several simple and powerful reasons cited by Kevin Snook, author of Make It Right: 5 Steps to Align Your Manufacturing Business from the Frontline to the Bottom Line.

1 Key Salesforce Security Best Practice
We've seen many assume their Salesforce orgs are secure enough: why should they care about FMT's recommended key Salesforce security best practice? Consider that phishing attacks are increasing and 2020 stood out. 88% of organizations around the world experienced spear phishing attempts. Remote workers are being targeted more than before. And in a successful attack, nearly 60% of organizations lose data, nearly 50% are infected with ransomware, and nearly 35% of organizations experienced financial losses. Those are scary statistics. How can we keep our Salesforce data secure? Let's say you implemented Salesforce a while ago and everything is working well. It's flexible enough so that you can easily change a picklist value or add a little automation. But you probably haven't thought about security since you implemented Salesforce. In my experience, most implementations configure data access (which users can see or edit which records and which fields). But very little […]
