Read on to learn how Computron’s Accounts Payable can work for you.

Manage Supplier Relationships

Computron’s Accounts Payable enables you to define relationships with suppliers based on each supplier’s unique requirements and attributes. A supplier record may:

  • Contain multiple remittance and delivery addresses
  • Be defined for a one-time supplier
  • Be categorized into supplier groups to facilitate identification and reporting
  • Reference unique payment terms, which may be overridden as needed
  • Utilize discount profiles
  • Set limits on the amount committed to a specific vendor within a period
  • Be flagged as delinquent to stop further payment
  • Be accessed quickly via user-defined soft keys

Since the Accounts Payable module stores detailed supplier history (purchases, discounts, payments, and delivery performance) for current and prior fiscal or calendar years, you can perform thorough reporting and analysis of all supplier activity.

Comprehensive Invoice Management

From initial invoice receipt through payment authorization and final remittance to the supplier, Computron's Accounts Payable module keeps you in control of this crucial business process. Incoming invoices, which can be categorized by a user-defined purchase type, are stored in an invoice register for real time recording of supplier liability and VAT amount before the invoice is authorized for payment or GL posting. Standard General Ledger distributions based on fixed amounts or percentages allow for rapid data entry. To assist with invoice payment, the Accounts Payable module allows you to define authorization limits per user and utilizes a three-way comparison procedure to match the invoice, purchase order, and delivery documentation prior to authorizing a payment.

Maximize Cash Flow

With streamlined invoice management expediting payment to suppliers, your organization’s cash flow can operate fluidly and efficiently, leveraging supplier discounts and flexible payment methods. Computron’s Accounts Payable supports multiple payment methods, such as Electronic Funds Transfer (BACS, ACH) and partial and split payments, all of which can be scheduled to post automatically, maximizing your ability to claim discounts based on supplier payment terms. To facilitate management visibility into cash accounts, Accounts Payable offers sophisticated queries, online bank account balance reports, and automated bank statement reconciliation.
