FAST AND EASY ACCOUNT ENQUIRY
The powerful Accounts Receivable inquiry mode is accessed directly from the terminal, making it easy to answer customer telephone inquiries. Inquiries may include invoice by date, invoice by customer/dates, payments, unpaid invoices, receipt forecast, aging and customers. If desired, invoice details can also be displayed. Account inquiry may be quickly accessed by customer name, date of payment, invoice type, currency, e.t.c. Reprinting of specific invoices is extremely simple.
Cash received may be distributed to outstanding invoices during cash receipts entry. Once the customer number and document number are entered for an open-item customer, a list of this customer’s invoices will appear. If invoice numbers are not known, payments can simply be applied to the account. The system will internally apply the payment to the oldest invoices to accommodate aging on inquiries and statements.
Topaz Accounts Receivable module produces statements for customers. Statements are “date sensitive”, allowing you to continue processing the next month’s transactions even though you have not completed the month. Statement selection is extremely versatile. Statements can be printed by customer account number or customer account number ranges. Options exist to suppress printing zero balance statements, print only accounts with current activity, or print only delinquent accounts.
The button-driven menu system, pull down menus and scrolling lists for selection and look-up make the system easy to use and easy to learn. There is open access to data, capability to export data to spreadsheets, word processors and other packages. The data entry sections where possible, use combo boxes to allow for selection rather than entry of data. This increases data entry speed, reduces data entry errors and facilitates querying of the database and reporting. The inquiry section allows sorting of information by different Parameters (fields) with a lot of ease.
