Also, get insight into your business by reporting budget verses actual by year, quarter or month. Keep an audit trail of who modifies a budget and when to maintain control over your business.


    Quickly transfer information between Receivables Management and Payables Management to create a customer record that uses information already available in a vendor record, and vice versa, giving a consolidated view of the vendor and customer relationships. Also easily combine customer accounts or vendor accounts.


    Maintain all of your financial journal entries and budgets with a double-entry accounting ledger that supports up to 999 periods. Track non-financial data like unit accounts at the general ledger level. Transfer account balances based on a variable account by percent or unit giving more flexibility to your general ledger. Easily copy and paste data from excel or text into general ledger.


    Set up and maintain relationships so that revenues or expenses incurred in one company can be tracked as “due to” or “due from” amounts in other companies. View and void distributions of intercompany transactions from other companies.


    Take control of multinational operations and manage currency transactions smoothly and efficiently with flexible, powerful multicurrency capabilities such as easy re-evaluation.


    National Accounts provides the ability to define a national account relationship between multiple customers. It enables a customer to be defined as the “parent” account to which “child” customers may be added. This allows a payment received from the parent company to be applied across any of the child customers’ payments. Credit documents can also be applied from the child customer to any other member of the national account.


    Automate routine and complex accounts payable tasks with real-time statistical history, easy reconciliation, account control, payment scheduling, and check printing.
