Is SAP as Easy to Use as QuickBooks?

Published on June 7, 2019

We are often asked if SAP Business One will be as easy to use as QuickBooks, but the question is not as simple as it may seem.   QuickBooks is a simpler system and built for small businesses that may not have a true accountant, or a logistics manager for their inventory.  So if you base the question on simplicity, the answer would be absolutely not.

The Value of Time

Published on May 21, 2019

Time is a non-replenishable commodity and I think everyone reading this blog would say that their time is extremely valuable.   If you don't find this article interesting, it will be a waste of time! 

In almost every industry there is a value to time. 

  • How much time does it take to fill an order?
  • Do you waste time looking for information, or reconciling differences between systems
  • How long does it take to create a quote, or enter a hand created or faxed in order?

So is there an intrinsic value to time?

There are numerous reasons to say the answer is yes!   There are economic theories used to value activities without time.  A recent story on public radio asked people what they would need to be paid not to engage in free activities.  Studies have valued Facebook at $48-50 per month because that was the median value of how much people would take to not login to the social media site.  Surprisingly, and not so surprisingly, indoor plumbing and the toilet are the most valued commodity we don't directly pay for!

For SAP Distribution.com we look at our service as a valuable commodity.  We add value in obvious and not so obvious ways.

New Cases Filed Relating to Tarrif and Chinese Ceramic Tile

Published on April 25, 2019

Over $ 600 million worth of these types of ceramic tile were imported into the United States from China in 2018. On April 10, 2019, the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ceramic Tile filed petitions with the U.S. Department of Commerce (“DOC”) and the U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) seeking the imposition of antidumping (“AD”) and countervailing (“CVD”) customs duties on imports of ceramic tile from the People’s Republic of China. The antiduping filing charges that Chinese tile is being priced below market causing harm to US manufacturers and that these low prices are being subsidized by the Chinese government. Unfair trading practices not only hurt US manfuacturers, but also American importers who bring in tile from Europe and other countries.
