I purchased a Ricoh MP C307 printer directly rather than going through the Ricoh sales people. It's a brand new printer with new toner, but for some reason it won't print black, we have to change font color to blue in order to print it. I called the seller, he told me I haven't done the setup right and that there is nothing wrong with the printer, he advised me to hire a Ricoh tech to do the proper setup. I've setup 100s of printers in my life time, I am pretty sure there is no magic step that I missed during setup. Would appreciate any tips on how to fix this. Thanks!

Hello- I have recently gotten involved with our new MS Dynamics 2016 rollout for our sales teams and I am just kind of feeling my way through the many screens, etc.  I have one issue that I have inherited that I could use a little help troubleshooting.  We have two regional presidents.  Sales managers and sales team members are ultimately roll-up to these two presidents.  The way it has been explained to me is that when the presidents go into dynamics they have access to an 'exectuve view' (dashboard?) and one of the combo boxes on that view is 'My Open Opportunites'.  When the president selects 'My Open Opportunites' he is supposed to see ALL of the open opportunities in his region, from all sales team members.   This is working correctly for President A, but when President B looks at this screen there are no results.   Can someone point me in the right direction on what permission to check for President B in comparision to the settings for President A so that I might see if this can be corrected?  I have much to learn in the weeks ahead about all this but if I could get this little issue corrected it would be a great start!  Thanks for any help! -

Hello,

What Excel method(s) are most useful or valid for analyzing the relative sales success of a number of products?

That is a much less-specific question than I would like to be asking but suppose you have a sales report with the following information:

        Products: 200 SKU's
        Date Range: 3 years
        Number of Sales: 11,000+

...and containing the following data (file attached):

 2017-09-05c_EE.png
I had in mind creating a chart with the [# of items sold] as the vertical axis vs [time elapsed since product introduced] as the horizontal axis. However, that would be quite cluttered with 200 products so I'm interested in other approaches.

Thanks

Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to sort SKUs in the sales order and in the shopping cart in Magento (ver. 1.9.0.1). Ideally we would like ascending SKU order. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance!

I would like to know if it is possible to restore sales in files and start over. I entered the wrong date for sales and I just would like to put them back and bring the correct date over.

I've got three columns: Individual, Amount, and Date. Each individual has multiple sales for each date, and I want to find the simplest way in which to see how much they sold on their best day, and potentially, what day that was. I can make a new sheet, with one column full of every date from January 1 to December 31, the second column containing the individual's name, and then a SUMIF to pull the totals for each day, then use MAX on that column to find the number, but I'm guessing there's a better way.

I am just thinking about this very cliched phrase that is so often used by corporate executives. And this dawned upon me when my friend asked me what is my USP when I decided to setup a store on an online marketplace.

I am thinking of this from 2 angles:
  1. From a business angle
  2. From a product angle

Example:
What really differentiate Supermarket A from Supermarket B,C, or D?

  • They will likely be selling the similar range of brands at likely the similar prices.
  • They will likely have the similar facilities like parking, children friendly facilities, etc
  • The level of service will likely be the same

So how can a business as such really differentiate themselves? And even if they do, how can prevent it from being duplicated.

And at the end, if they really came with something unique .. is it really a uniqueness that matter to the consumers?

Hi all,
i have the unenviable task of updating an onliine sales portal made at least 10 years ago, and which links into a customers SAP system.

there are no problems when i am updating prices, but if i need to add items to the page, there is code i obviously need to alter:
onClick="buyItem('5247 BURN AID GEL 50G PK10','6.10', document.itemsform.box10.value)">

The question is, what and where does the "document.itemsform.box10.value" refer to, and can i just add to the box value if i am adding more items? i.e. if box11.value didnt exist, could i add that code to a new item?

thanks in advance

Hello!

I am designing a template that sales people will use to log their activity. I want to make it so that, for example, cell D3 changes to "someone@example.com" when email is selected from the drop down list in E3 or "(XXX)-XXX-XXXX" when mobile phone is selected. This is easy to be done, however, when a sales person goes to log the data they will have to erase the formula to put in the info. Is there any way it can display the data I want but then act like an empty cell when a user goes to input data?

Hi
I have 2 different methods which are used to forecast future product returns, the problem is that the answers from each method are drastically different - ie; one method is nearly double the forecast qty of the other (4966 vs 2689), and I'm looking for some advice on which is the most appropriate or "statistically correct" (if there is such a thing).

See attached file to better understand the methods used, and their results.

The data that is involved is Sales and Returns of a product across the product timeline.
The product timeline refers to the date from when the product was first sold, to the date when the warranty runs out on that first sale.
The warranty period for the product is eg; 36 months - so 36 months after the first sale is made, the warranty expires and the product is no longer in the Warranty Install Base (WIB).

The WIB is cumulative sales from the first sale of the product until the warranty runs out.

The first method uses the returns per month against the WIB (for that month) to provide the monthly return rate.

The second method uses the cumulative returns per month against the WIB (for that month) to provide the cumulative return rate.

The first method:
Assuming we are running the report in May, n order to project/predict the return rate for June, the report looks at the average return rate for the previous 12 months, and uses this average as the return rate for June.
Then, to predict the return rate for July, we use the  average of…

Dear Experts

One of my branch are using sales force automation software sugarcrm, we outsourced the sales force work to the agency but we facilitated the sales force automation software and we track the activities of every lead done by the sales users,
At present we have provided our domain email accounts for every sales users and also mobile device with SIM/voice and data plan for mobile devices and they use Mobile App of sales force automation for the follow-ups like outbound calls , sms, emails.
Now new Sales head joined our company he says let the agency sales users  use our software but remove all the email IDs and SIM's let the agency use their email and their SIM's for data and voice,  reason that he  says if the agency sales users  communicate  to the prospect/buyer through  their email ID which is not as per our terms then prospect reaching us we can tell that it is agency email and we are not responsible for this.
I want to put the best practice here, can you please help me with few things that go wrong if we ask agency to use their email, I request the best industry practice , please suggest.  I work as VP IT and I took initiative to implement the sales force automation software.

[Webinar] Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Skyport is working hard to help customers recover from recent attacks, like the Petya worm. This work has brought to light some important lessons. New malware attacks like this can take down your entire environment. Learn from others mistakes on how to prevent Petya like worms.

I am having an issue with some of our customer service folks - when they open an order that has had manual adjustments to pricing it automatically updates the entire order to the original item card pricing. I have went into AR > Setup > Accounts receivable parameters & checked both updates (prompts are on) and also Prices to make sure manual is a source that activates dialog. I am at a loss for what else to look into. They do not get any prompts or anything it just automatically updates it upon clicking modify even before they add anything or make adjustments.

Hi There!

I am trying to find  a bit of software we can load on-prem, which will serve 5-10 people, which is basically a little intranet.
Wishlist:
1) Must work on-premise
2) Be able to create pages where links to suppliers sites etc, ideally simply controlling who can see which pages inside the intranet so admin team can see different sites to sales for example
3) Link to documents

Ideally might have wiki functionality
Ideally might integrate with AD

Something simple, easy to use and cheap/free if possible.

All i have a problem with one of my clients.

They use Intuit POS  v9.0. Recently they noticed that some sales data was missing.  when running a payment summary report for the month of October. they noticed that only data from the 20-31 was showing up. Upon more investigation we found out that all the sales data history from 9/11-10/20 is gone. how can this be? is there a way to get it back? can users manually delete these?

where can i find out if it was deleted?

thanks

I have come across 3 types of clients who are reluctant to jump into an ecommerce solution. They feel little workarounds are sufficient such as 1) a link to their email on the buy now button instead of a proper checkout experience. They then take it manually from there. 2) A link to an external site to place the order for their product. This is either a (2)  marketplace with many other products or an (3) external online POS system with their products.

I am certain their conversion rate in all 3 cases they would be better off with a proper on-site ecommerce solution but am at a loss to find either statistics or a couple good articles backing me up.

Would you know of any such statistics or articles I could refer to?
