Solution-IV® Accounts ReceivableSolution-IV® Accounts Receivable

Solution-IV® Accounts Receivable is a flexible and complete accounting software package designed to help you manage your customer base and incoming cash flow. Your sales and profit information, and cash receipts are organized into reports that show what you are selling, how profitable it is, who owes you money, and which sales representatives are making your sales. All of this can be done while saving time and increasing accuracy over a manual system.



The system parameters allow you to customize the Accounts Receivable package to your particular needs without having to make program changes. The parameters include such things as whether or not to post to General Ledger, how you post finance charges, your customer aging categories, how you handle sales commissions, and the next automatic invoice number.
