Recent Speaking Engagements - OAUG Collaborate17

In Las Vegas, Nevada, at the April 2017 Collaborate17 Conference, Doug gave the following solutions to the OAUG Community:

Resolve Your Inventory A/P Accrual Issues Now!  Even for Intercompany Internal Orders and Consignment!
Can't efficiently use the R12 A/P Accrual functionality?  Unable to reconcile to the G/L or match up accruals for internal orders (IR/ISO) and inventory consignment?  Especially as the standard R12 Accrual functionality treats internal order entries on the Miscellaneous Accrual Report as unmatched transactions?  And dropped prior functionality by only reporting the latest activity date as opposed to the earliest activity date?  Learn how you can overcome these issues, even if on Oracle for many years.  For more information email Doug at or click on this link for the presentation.

Want to Know Your Average Costs? Run Periodic Costing Alongside Your Discrete Costing Method!
Do you use Standard Costing but are having difficulty tracking your average material and production costs?  Or use an Average or FIFO perpetual costing method but wanted to double-check its accuracy?  Want to know if Oracle has standard features that may help?  This presentation will explain how Oracle Periodic Costing can work alongside your existing Discrete Cost Method, without affecting your G/L accounting entries and without a bunch of extra effort.  Thoughtful and complete instructions are included as well as calculation examples.  Plus detailed information for how to import your starting Periodic Costs.  For more information email Doug at or click on this link for the presentation.

PowerHour - Managing Reconciliation in Manufacturing and Distribution Organizations
Do you have recurring issues with month-end close and reconciliation?  Wishing there is a way to make the inventory and manufacturing month-end reconciliation processes easier?  Looking for solutions for common Discrete and Process Costing reconciliation challenges?  Learn from your fellow colleagues, find out how they solved similar issues and what solutions have worked best.  And find out about standard features you may have missed, plus additional multi-organization reporting which may help to speed your close cycle and other tricks and tips to ease the  month-end close and reconciliation hassles.  For more information email Doug at or click on this link for the presentation.
