More from the asylum....

Guess what?

This one isn't from me either, dingbat 
Something I recall from sage - it's not always as simple as "What was the computer counting".

Sage offers a very special feature - the ability to construct any report conceivable which is what gives them such a competitive edge. The package comes with a suite of reports that can be either used or modified for each individual user. When you use the report generator it takes you into a labyrinth of tables and fields where it's very easy to choose the wrong option and produce a garbage report.

You can sometimes tell which fields were added by simply looking at the report headers - if they're not lined up or if the spacing seems wrong. In this example if the field "type" wasn't taken from the right table or of the joins weren't done correctly it will produce incorrect totals.

  1. Insane,

    This is from a personal uk.linkedin.com page, from a Gustavo Cxxx, a C# Web Developer:

    Help desk & Webmaster
    Profitus
    May 1998 – June 2000 (2 years 2 months)Lisbon Area, Portugal

    Profitus was a retail management software house, which developed vertical products for businesses such as shops, restaurants and hotels.

    • Providing first and second line support to Profitus’ software resellers
    • Communicating with the development team in order to solve issues and improve Profitus’ products
    • Creating, setting up and maintaining the company’s website (HTML / CSS / JavaScript / Hosting / DNS register)
    • Producing website activity statistics
    • Managing the company’s email accounts and aliases

    It seems that Profitus is made in Portugal and doesn't use sage.

    Not seeing what's the use to pay for a software that "takes you into a labyrinth of tables and fields where it's very easy to choose the wrong option and produce a garbage report" and where a "suite of reports that can be either used or modified for each individual user".

    Or to put in another words, pay to have unreliable reports produced (as anyone can intervene in it) with totals different from what is listed and so handing out to their employees information that may or not be true ir even make any sense.

This was a corker

As was this:

I am so glad to see you are using a reliable source, Textusa
The linkedin page of someone who worked for Profitus in 1998. Impressive

Readers should take note of how much supposed ''information'' you discern from a quasi-source, dear............
