New Dataset Release: BCGG

September 18, 2017
We celebrate our one year anniversary by giving more datasets to faculty around the globe. Our newly created company, BCGG, Inc., is now available. There are 5 year-end datasets with Sales, Sales Invoices, Purchases, Purchase Invoices, Beginning and Ending Inventory, Prices, Customer Listing and Vendor Listing. There are also process manuals and process flowcharts for Sales and Purchases. There is more to come.
For example, we are creating cases and exercises for Tableau, IDEA, and ACL and new variables in the existing data tables.
If you have ideas for cases and exercises, please send them to us.

Thank you to all the faculty and students around the world who supported our mission.
