With the help of the wizard, you can decide to create target documents such as delivery notes or invoices automatically using sales orders, deliveries, returns, or Ar invoices as a basis. For example, you can group all existing sales documents in a single invoice for any given customer, or create summarized invoices for any given customer based on a variety of orders and delivery notes collected over the course of a month.
Dunning wizard – Automate the process of creating and sending reminder letters to customers with outstanding payments. Execute the wizard at regular intervals, such as monthly or weekly, to check for outstanding customer invoices, and send a series of late notices with different levels of severity at predefined intervals. In addition, you can maintain a payment history for each customer so you can make more informed decisions when it comes to defining payment terms for future orders.
