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
