What is PrintStream’s AR Invoice Import?
This module allows PrintStream users with alternative AR Invoicing packages to import data via a standard Microsoft Access database into PrintStream’s normal accounting flow. An example might be where a separate postage accounting system or a complimentary business (premium sales) where a single billing to the customer is desirable.
AR Invoice Import accomplishes this in two easy steps. First, the outside system creates a file in a specific format and exports it to a PrintStream import queue, where it remains pending review. The module then allows the selected data to be imported into the PrintStream database for use in normal processing for billing, costing and accounting purposes.
AR Invoice Import dovetails two invoicing systems into one combined bill and unified record of work for your customers.
When a separate billing function occurs in a separate system, it may be advantageous to retain the process for operational reasons. However, the result of having this separate system may be a separate invoicing process for your customer and the loss of a unified record of work. Without AR Invoice Import, a manual invoice would need to be created within PrintStream to maintain this unified record. While this manual method does provide a composite accounting history, it can add a significant workload to your accounting department and makes errors more likely.
This module eliminates separate record keeping and billing. It completes the task with a simple, near effortless import of the data into PrintStream.
