Teacher Bit by Social Media Identity Theft on Twitter

Here’s an identity theft story you’ll love to hate.

In Panama City Florida a local and respected teachers’ identity was used to create a fake Twitter profile which spouted off derogatory comments about autistic students. The teacher works with special needs students and had no idea this was going on until she was informed by officials questioning her and the profile.

The Twitter profile included the teachers name, photo, and town along with the derogatory comments. People all over the world started contacting locals officials demanding her ouster after they saw what “she” was writing.

When this came to the attention of the school they immediately brought her in for questioning to determine if she was the author. Their initial questioning led them to believe she was not the author; however they made her bring in her laptop and examined her hard drive for further investigation.

As I’ve said before, identity theft is the only crime I can think of where you are guilty until proven innocent.  Once something like this happens it can quickly and easily damage your reputation.

Before implementing Anytime gather, the business used the accounts receivable functions within their ERP system to handle payment and invoice collection; although Sage 300 ERP (previously Sage ACCPAC) has effective tools for bookkeeping and finance, the system wasn’t designed to maximize the productivity of enthusiasts and improve the quote-to-cash pattern. As a global business with eleven offices in the us, six nations, and consumers internationally, the limited accounts receivable administration functions in Sage 300 ERP were not adequate to help the business lower DSO and increase cashflow for continued development.

Integrated because of the organization’s enterprise resource administration computer software, Anytime Collect is a cloud-based system that expands the Sage 300 ERP accounts receivable module and automates the complete accounts receivable management process. Anytime gather pulls the organization’s accounts receivable information and activities into one place and allows users to automate their particular many time-consuming tasks including sending repayment reminders and overdue notices, prioritizing collector tasks, archiving buyer mail reactions, etc. With your jobs being completed because of the system, collectors can now focus their attempts on collecting large invoices, deciding disputes, and much better serving their clients. Additional functions enable the business to handle buyer credit applications, a significant facet of the company’s accounts receivable strategy.

When gather provides people a consolidated snapshot of this company’s Sage 300 ERP reports receivable with real time information and metrics to help them monitor receivables, including top delinquent buyer reports, day’s sales outstanding, collection tasks, the cost of credit, and a lot more.

Anytime gather seems itself as a very good device for businesses in this business seeking to boost their charge collection efficiencies and minimize day’s sales outstanding. Im confident that this company might find the results they’ve been looking plus with regards to When Collect and Sage 300 ERP integration.”
