Taking your business online!

Revelation Accounting Software is proud to announce one of the most dynamic features ever introduced into an “off-the-shelf” accounting package. Our team have developed an amazing online shop (with a payment and Order gateway), that is linked directly to your Revelation package, which will create an instant web presence for your business. In order to combat the current impact of COVID-19 on the economy, the government will be more dependent on organisations moving toward digital sales and delivery systems.

Cost-of-Sales - YES or NO

The Controversy Surrounding C.O.S - by V.E. Shirley There has been a big deliberation about the controversy surrounding Cost-of-Sales, in general, as well as in Revelation. Must COST-OF-SALES be switched ON or OFF? To try and clarify this issue, we have recently written and article about Cost-of-Sales as well as tried to explain the advantages of having Cost-of-Sales running in your Company in Automated Mode. First of all, we would like to explain why cost-of-sales is not switched on in so many Revelation users’ packages. It is actually very simple. Revelation is the very first accounting package to run on a pc in South African (and many countries in the western world). When pc based accounting was introduced, auditors were not familiar with the concept of automating the cost-of-sales ...

Loadshedding Blues

Eskom announced recently that it will implement stage 2 scheduled power blackouts. Stage 2 load shedding is the process of deliberately reducing the national load by up to 2 000 MW through scheduled blackouts to avoid tripping the whole system due to too much demand and too little supply. Since the implementation of the scheduled blackouts, we have had an influx of calls in the support centre regarding crashes that have occurred due to these blackouts. We urge everyone to invest in a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). A UPS provides temporary emergency power to computer(s) where the input power source or main power fails. Please ensure that during the time of load shedding, the regular "Quick Backup" option is used at least twice a day to ensure a recent fallback point. We also highly...

The Bridge to the Dark side!!!

Labour recovery on Manufacturing – The Bridge to the Dark Side I have often stood in amazement as to how the human brain interprets different information based on pre-conceptions and personal priority. The IT guru will always overspend on Computers whereas someone with a mechanical background tends to apply the company funds toward transport. The manufacturing department is no different. I have been to so many clients in the manufacturing industry and each one of them has their own take on the concept of recovering Labour as a component of manufacturing. For those of us that do not deal with manufacturing, the principle of labour is as follow: When a worker is employed in the manufacturing plant, he or she is paid a wage. This is more often than not an hourly rate. They are also very ...
