Session 3
Best practices in production inventory to accounting

In the manufacturing industry, the accounting process requires much more details versus a business that maintains no inventory.  It is of utmost importance to track not only inventory, but also production overheads, and ensure they are correctly transferred to the General Ledger.  Integrating manufacturing accounting with general accounting will benefit businesses in having all business areas (sales, procurement, inventory, manufacturing) interfacing with the Ledger and facilitate the reconciliation between the sub-ledger and the ledger.  The inventory to accounting webinar will allow participants to see how perpetual inventory and manufacturing accounting can be set up in a CSB environment.  The participants will also see a practical example from an existing customer, where perpetual inventory and manufacturing accounting is used.
