I have a large customer which has many stores. Stores order good but accounts paid by head office. They have just advised that will only pay 60day of invoice date.
How can I get a warning for by store that there is an over due invoice when processing sales order or an invoice. As I which to hold shipment until account for that store is in line with there trading terms.
this is again the issue of workarounds vs automation, that i have been facing since more than 17 years now. Creating automated Stock Alerts, and giving warning on outstanding receivables, that we have already talked about we can assist any business wanting these features.
Thanks Guys for your help. But when multi nationals can't pay small business in a respectable time and we are forced to get additional bank finance to cover there debts, its worth wondering if we should do business with them.
The SME software sounds like a great idea but I don't think we would be able to get value for money in this current conditions, so will just have to find another way around my problem.
My best suggestion for a workaround is this...make sure you have the Open Window list showing from the View menu. Then if your screen is big enough - Choose to show Multiple Windows (also from the View menu) and set it to Tile Vertifically (from the Window menu)
Then bring up the Customer Centre - and filter this by Overdue Invoices and go to the multi national store customer... - then your staff can press Ctrl+I or Select Invoice from the New Transaction drop down - you can then process your invoice whilst being able to see the overdue invoices for this client. Certainly not ideal but allows you to see the information you need?
