Understanding the Purpose for Divisions:

Divisions allow you to define and separate the Company - either for territorial reasons or for product line differentiation - into any number of Divisions.

Divisions also allow your Company to Billing an Alarm Dealer's Accounts for those companies for whom you are providing Contract Monitoring Services by having each Dealer's name and return address automatically printed on the Recurring Revenue Invoices sent to their Subscribers.

Divisions may be used to identify specific business related entities, regions (territorial or functional) or any other sub-divisions within the Company, and to allow the creation of custom Invoice and Work Order headers to accommodate multiple offices within the same Company, and/or to accommodate Billing an Alarm Dealer's Accounts.

 

Each Division may belong to one or more Division Groups

Each Division Group may have any number of Divisions as members within that Group.

Several Accounts Receivable System Reports allow for filtering or record selection based on what Division Code is assigned to the Subscriber and/or the Division Group to which that Division Code belongs.  These reports are:

a)Accounts Receivable (As Of) Report

b)Attrition Report

c)Average Recurring Revenue Report

d)Cash Receipts by Salesman

e)Invoice Statements

f)Sales Analysis Report

g)Sales Taxes Billed Report

h)Sales taxes Collected Report

i)Sales Tax Breakdown Report

j)Recurring Revenue Preview

k)Revenue by Month and Year

l)Subscriber Listing

m)Wholesale Collections Report

 

Defining the Company's Division Groups:

a)From the Backstage Menu System Select Maintenance and Choose General and Click the General Maintenance option which displays the Maintenance Menu, or

b)From the Quick Access Menu, Select Maintenance and Choose General Maintenance to display the Maintenance Menu.

 

Once the Maintenance Menu is displayed, Select the Receivables section and Choose Division Groups
