Follow these steps to delete a Sage Peachtree company.

Find Location of Peachtree Company Folder
Use Windows to Find and Select Company Folder
Delete Company Folder
Verify Company was Deleted

Find Location of Company.  One easy way to find the location of the Peachtree company folder is to start Peachtree and open the company you wish to delete.

Once Peachtree is loaded and you are in the desired company, select Maintain / Company Information from the main menu at the top of the screen.

 
See Directory.

Be careful to note exact directory location. The last group of characters (in this example, “BCS”) represent the company folder name. There may be company folders with very similar names.

Exit Peachtree.

 

 

 
Use Windows to Locate and Select Company Folder.  You can start with “My Computer” and use Windows to find and select the company folder. 

Delete the Company Folder.  After you find and select the noted company folder, right click your mouse for menu of options.

 

Select Delete.

Are you sure…. 

Be very sure you have selected the correct company folder. If so,

Select Yes.

 

 

 

 

 

 
Verify Company was Deleted.  Start Peachtree again.  Once Peachtree is up, select File / Open Company. This action takes you to a list of Peachtree companies in Peachtree’s datapath.

Company name should no longer be listed.

Contact me if you need help deleting, archiving companies or with a general cleanup of your Sage Peachtree company directories.

What’s Standing in Your Way?

What’s Standing in Your Way?


From: “Access to Access” and Seth Godin’s Blog

What’s standing in your way? What would help you start and ship and create something of value?

Access to ideas is easier than ever before. You can see over the shoulders of the great leaders in every industry, instantly and for free.

Access to tools is easier too. Every digital tool in the world is easily available, often for free.

Access to markets? The internet brings every market segment into clear view and lowers the cost of reaching it.

Access to capital? It’s never been easier to find funding for an idea that’s enabled by the efficiencies the web creates.

Alas, the only access that’s harder than ever is access to the part of your brain that’s willing to take advantage of all of this. Precisely because it’s easier and faster than ever before, it’s easy to be afraid to reach out, to connect and to commit. No one can help you with that but you.

Keep Your Website Simple

Keep Your Website Simple


From: Transform Your Small Business Website From Blah to Ta-Dah! from Jessica Swanson and Manta Tip of the Day

Have you ever visited a website and were absolutely bored out of your mind?

Unfortunately, way too many websites are just big, fat sales brochures yapping on and on about every excruciating detail about the company – right down to a 500-word history on when and why the company was founded. Uggg!

Always remember that your website needs to be about your customer, not about you. Your customer doesn’t give a hoot about when and why your company was founded. All they care about is their problems and finding a solution. Blah and boring websites are much more common than websites that work. In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that most small business owners need to do a complete overhaul of their website in order to bring it from “blah” to “ta-dah.”

The good news is that there are simple and immediate solutions that you can implement in order to keep prospects on your website and convert them to paying customers.

Here is a list of five simple and proven ways to transform your website:

1. Create a clear purpose.
When a visitor comes to your website, your purpose needs to be crystal clear. Do you want the prospect to enter their name and email into a website opt-in form? Are you trying to sell a product or service? Are you interested in educating the prospect over time? Your website should be designed to efficiently guide visitors to the information that they are seeking. It must have a clear and direct purpose.

In the overcrowded world of the internet, you only have three seconds to capture the attention of your prospect. If your visitor is confused (even a little), they are going to leave your website in order to find a more obvious solution.

2. Highlight your benefits.
A prospect visits your site in order to solve a problem or improve their lives. It’s your job to convince them that your product or service will accomplish this. You can succeed in doing this by highlighting the benefits that your prospect will receive if they purchase your product or service.

Will your product make your prospect happier? Will it save them time? Will they be healthier or wealthier? It’s imperative that you convey to your prospect that if they purchase from you, they will receive an obvious and important benefit.

3. Keep it simple.
Time is a precious commodity in today’s world. More than ever before, your visitors are looking for a solution to their problems in a quick and timely manner. They don’t have hours to browse through your website looking for the answer.

Keep your web copy concise and to the point. You should use short paragraphs, bulleted lists and bolded and underlined text to highlight items of importance.

4. Give your visitors reasons to trust you.
As soon as a visitor comes to your site, it’s crucial that they feel that they can connect and trust you. There are a number of ways to increase the trust factor. Make sure that your contact information is prominent and easy to find.

Your website should be free from grammatical and spelling errors. Your site should have the look and feel of a well-established and successful company.

Research suggests that trust must be established for a prospect to either give you their information or make a purchase.

5. Offer your visitors options.
Whether you’re offering a product or service, your sales will immediately increase if you offer your prospects multiple options.

Giving your prospects three distinct price points to choose between is a highly successful model. For instance, if you’re offering a service, you can bundle your service into three different price points that will appeal to different buyers. If you’re offering a product, then offer a low price point, middle price point and a high price point.

When buyers have choices they feel more in control. They appreciate the fact that they are selecting an option that works best for them and their specific needs.

There are numerous ways to keep prospects engaged in your website and convert them to happy clients and customers. If you design your website with a clear and specific purpose, keep things simple, create a sense of trust and offer numerous benefits and options, you’ll soon find yourself with an abundance of new sales, clients and happy customers.

What is the Sage Peachtree Internal Accounting Review?

What is the Sage Peachtree Internal Accounting Review?


From: “What is the Internal Accounting Review?” at Peachtree.com

The Internal Accounting Review is a tool that allows you to run an internal audit on your Sage Peachtree company data. It looks for common transaction mistakes and potentially fraudulent activity by running a series of up to 15 checks against your company data. If transactions are found, they are listed under the appropriate Internal Accounting Review check name for your review. You then have the opportunity to take the appropriate action on each transaction.

These checks represent common transaction mistakes and/or conditions that might be revealed in an external audit. While this review is not exhaustive, it is intended to help you identify, investigate, and if necessary, correct issues that may be problems. Here’s what we look for:

 1. Purchases or bills that don’t credit an accounts payable account
 2. Sales or invoices that don’t debit an accounts receivable account
 3. Payments or checks that don’t credit a cash account
 4. Receipts or money received that doesn’t debit a cash account
 5. Transactions that debit and credit the same general ledger account
 6. Possible duplicate transactions of the same type
 7. Vendor invoices or bills from prior periods that have not been received
 8. Transactions entered in the future
 9. Transactions posted to inactive records
10. Un-reconciled cash accounts
11. Inventory items that default to duplicate general ledger accounts
12. Out of sequence checks
13. Accounts receivable accounts that are out of balance with the aged receivables report
14. Accounts payable accounts that are out of balance with the aged payables report
15. Possible duplicate paychecks for an employee within a pay period
