  • When posting this OE Shipment Entry, you can also create an invoice simultaneously . This is a time saving feature and will ensure that the invoice can be sent with the shipment and that AR does not have to create an invoice separately However, if your processes require invoices to be created separately it can also be done

  • Objective Based on payment history, customers can be put on a “credit hold” status. CRM workflows can be used to request for a credit extension. Focus AR Customer Master CRM Credit Request Extension workflow
  • AR Customer Master: Establish credit limit for customer 1105 ($5000.00/30 Days - $3000.00) You can track information on customer credit rating. This ensures that you don’t accidentally over-extend credit to those with a lower rating You can specify threshold levels to generate system warnings when the customer credit exceeds a certain amount, optionally combined with certain number of days AR transactions are overdue by In this example, let’s set the total credit limit to 5000.00 and $3000 if due for 30 days or more
  • A/R Customer Activity From the customer activity screen you can see that this customer has already exceeded their limits from previous transactions (even before you set a limit)
  • Order Entry When a sales person tries to enter a new sales order, they are presented with a system generated Credit Warning . This transaction will only go through if overridden by the authorized person i.e. controller or a designated person During the demo, when you get this message you can use the ADMIN account to show the override rights At this stage it is prudent to put a customer account on hold so that no more orders can be processed. Appropriate actions based on company policy.
  • Workflow to request credit extension To complement the foregoing feature in the ERP, CRM workflow can be implemented that will provide notification to AR if a customer worthy of a credit increase needs it A business rule will determine, if the limit can be increased for those not in default and for those there are no write-offs etc. A salesperson/CRM user can collect the necessary documents from a customer and when done, a notification will be sent to the AR Clerk for further action The workflow, reduces the steps and helps maintain the customer relations Notice that a message on the screen clearly displays that the customer is on hold
