Advanced Credit Management for Microsoft Dynamics AX

Supplier: Scalable Data Systems

Good cash flow is vital in today’s business environment and effective credit management plays an important role in maintaining a healthy cash flow.


Improve cash flow

In a volatile business environment, companies have to assess their trading terms and credit risks constantly and often have various credit control rules in place. Credit controllers need to identify breaches of trading terms immediately and resolve claims quickly to maintain cash flows. 

Reduced customer credit risk

Advanced Credit Management is specifically designed to work with the Accounts Receivable Module in Microsoft Dynamics AX and automates the credit control rules and authorisations. 

The Customer Credit Management component of the module reduces customer credit risk and supports fast credit control review and authorisation.

Advanced Credit Management extends the "warning" dates system to a "hold" if the credit limit is exceeded, or credit term exceeds, i.e. overdue transactions. 

Fast resolution of claims

The Credit Claims Management component supports organisations that have high volume of sales and credit claims with their customers. 

When a customer invoice is short paid pending a credit note, open balances are displayed on customer accounts. Within organisations that have customers with high sales turnovers this can cause the open transactions of a customer's account to inaccurately reflect their balance compared to the customer's account because the customer account sees the invoice as settled by the claim.

The module allows for credit claims to be entered and settled against invoices. This ensures that the Open Transactions for Customers reflect the status expected by your customer and substantially simplifies account management and reconciliation.

Claim management

All remaining invoices entered in the Accounts Receivable ledger are clearly collectable, improving the collection process.  Invoices in the claims system are either subsequently approved and closed, or are transferred back to the Accounts Receivable ledger for settlement.
