Supplier Payment


Supplier Reconciliation



Your Accounts Payable personnel do more than just pay the bills. They are involved in building a relationship with your vendor by making sure all payments and contractual conditions are fulfilled. They also add to the bottom line when taking advantage of vendor discounts offered by paying invoices in a timely manner. Managing your suppliers needs while managing your cash flow requires a flexible and adaptable Accounts Payable system.

Accounts Payable (AP) provides the tools a utility requires to accurately track expenditures relating to vendors and when invoices are due for payment. Specifically designed for utility companies where the need to track cost centers (Sectors), Work Orders, and Projects is paramount. The utility benefits by seeing the immediate effect of payments owed to vendors. Vendor information can be tracked for current invoices and checks, and for an unlimited amount of history. The utility has instant access to vendor and invoice information.

Beside it also tracks vendor invoices, debit and credit memos, and writes checks in addition to recording manual checks, wire transfers, and voided checks. All of these functions are seamlessly integrated with General Ledger, Cash Manager, Purchase Orders, Work Orders, Project Costing, Transportation, and other subsidiary modules. Insight provides an extensive report library detailing Accounts Payable functions.

Manage your expenses efficiently and keep your accounts up to date with user-defined terms, aging periods, and cutoff dates. Produce timely reports to help assess your financial position. You’ll save time and money with the ability to review outstanding payments by vendor and select which payments to hold or release. Take control of your invoice processing and pay all invoices, prepay invoices, or split invoices for payment.

Improve your AP automation with quick entry and defaults on headers. They allow you to set up fields and header screens so you can skip over fields and enter default values as you choose. View historical data for an unlimited number of years in detail or in summary, and view and select payables to be released for payment.
