Customer Account Inquiry

Application Overview

 

 

This function gives you fast and easy access to all the necessary information to provide customer service for payments received, credit memos, debit memos and invoices that have been posted to a customers account.  To enhance your customer service, Customer Account Inquiry allows you to view or add new notes to an open item, as well as, displaying customer information and credit history.  You can also use the “Multi-Apply-To” feature to see how a document was applied.  This is very useful when you have a payment or credit memo that was applied to several documents. 

 

Additionally, this function allows you an Open Item and History Item inquiry.  When you purge the A/R Open Item file to reduce it’s size and to speed up processing, you do not lose the purged information because Elliott moves it over to the History Item file where it can still be accessed for inquiries.  This is very convenient when a customer asks you questions about older items that you have purged, i.e., an invoice that was paid 6 months ago!
