Over 30 years of managed expertise in computer technology INDEX

 

Accounting Support Specialist

 

While I am not an accountant, I have been working with and supporting financial accounting systems for about twenty years. I consider myself especially proficient at getting data in and out of those financial systems to seamlessly share with other applications. During the last seven years I have been supporting manufacturing systems software including MRP & ERP as it integrates into the financial system.

 

I am a certified accounting system administrator, specializing in the Macola Progression series from Exact Software. The majority of my recent experience has been in Macola. I have conducted training classes and provided one-on-one help-desk support on most modules of Macola for about five years. I have been and continue to be the bottom-line internal system administrator for the finance and manufacturing systems that run the business.

 

For three years, I supported a package called Khalsa Accounting from KIS, which runs under the Metropolis database on an Alpha Micro operating system (AMOS). I have supported many other systems including Genesys from Point Four Data, written in Unibasic as well as Thoroughbred accounting, MAS90, Systems Plus, MAI, BASIS International and other Business Basic flavors. A large portion of my time is spent in generating custom reports in Crystal Reports.

 

Starting in late 2003, I began supporting Mfg/Pro from QAD out of Carpenteria, CA. It uses the Progress 4GL database and SQL-92 with ODBC 4.2. I was part of the team that evaluated and chose Mfg/Pro from among many systems that we evaluated. We went with QAD because it was the best fit for our business. The implementation was done in record time just under four months. The project was budgeted at $500,000 dollars and we came in on time and under budget. I now support about 160 users who access the character-based system via telnet onto our super-fast Red Hat Linux AS 2.1 system.
