    Key Benefits

    Security Screen

    The security section of the system helps to ensure that access to the debt figures and customer information is controlled/restricted. You can configure the security settings to suit your company's requirements, this integrated section also includes database settings and user/collector information which you can edit from here.

    Advanced Filter

    The system' Search Engine and Advanced Filter are highly developed and can be utilised effectively when sifting through masses of data, allowing you rapid location of specified criteria. Also, thorough and complex filters can be created and saved for your re-use.

    Status Codes

    There are several codes which can be applied to the accounts; as a result, the debtors can be "grouped" in several ways. The codes (Status Code, Business Code, Debt Code and Status Group) assist in the 'breaking down' of the debts within the Reports created, the different codes also act as search criteria when filtering on the data-set for specific accounts.


    In addition to the codes which 'group' each account, we have included the 'Tracker' feature which allows you to keep trace of each separate invoice of an account which is making up the total of their debt.

    You can add Invoice Status Codes to each invoice and 'chase-up' specific invoices using the Chase a Debt screen; tracker can be enabled/disabled as you require.

    Debt Reports

    We have included an extensive Reports facility which creates numerous reports based on different debt information, such as; Credit-Limit Reports Age of Debt Report, Status Report - and more. The main Debt Report displays the debt totals broken down into organised groups using the status' business and debt codes. The reports can be exported to other applications, such as Excel and CSV, using the handy "Export" features or they can be printed for review.
