Gravity Software Releases Revenue Recognition Module

Gravity Software, provider of a mid-market accounting software written on the Microsoft Dynamics platform, has released its Revenue Recognition module.

The new module lets companies appropriately recognize revenue and expenses in the period it is earned in accordance with new standards from the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), said the company in a statement.

Gravity’s Revenue Recognition module makes it easier for companies to calculate the correct revenue in each period. After the initial setup, customers need only post their invoices as they normally would, and post the Revenue Recognition entries once a month, describes Gravity Software.

“We have designed Revenue Recognition to handle the complex issues related to managing the recognition process, but have kept it easy to implement and use,” said Randall Ykema, chief technology officer for Gravity, in a statement.

Copperstate Farms Select ‘Seed to Sale’ Software from The NAV People for New Medical Marijuana Agribusiness

Copperstate Farms, a medical marijuana agribusiness, has selected D365 Cannabis from The NAV People. D365 Cannabis manages every aspect of the business from “seed to sale” and integrates seamlessly with Office 365.

Copperstate will use the software to manage the greenhouse, growing and manufacturing at its production facility in Snowflake, AZ. The goods will be sold through a wholesale distribution network and dispensaries owned by Holistic Patient Wellness Group, according to officials of the companies.

“The medical marijuana industry, in common with the pharmaceutical and liquor industries, is tightly regulated by state and local laws,” said Susan Sweeney, the chief financial officer at Copperstate Farms in a statement. “D365 Cannabis gives us visibility of our entire operation, enabling us to run the business securely, efficiently, profitably and in accordance with oversight authorities.”

Jeff Kiehn, CEO, the Americas, at The NAV People, stated that medical marijuana and cannabis production is becoming big business that requires professional software.

“Most software offerings in this market are from start-ups whereas D365 Cannabis provides proven software that is certified by Microsoft,” he stated.
