Sales and Purchase Ledgers
The Sales Ledger within axis diplomat provides comprehensive analysis of your trading with your customers, far beyond the essential accounting, auditing and tax requirements, whilst the Purchase Ledger holds details on suppliers, and your trading with them. Customers and Suppliers can be sub-divided into groups and a wide range of information held and produced for them.
Flexible credit terms, together with support for early settlement discounts, mean that system can produce an up-to-date picture of your debtor and creditor position at any time.
Transactions (such as cash, invoices and credit notes) are retained indefinitely. A full audit trail and detailed allocation history make it easy to see, for example, what invoices were paid using a particular cash receipt or credit note. Documents are also archived indefintely so you are able to reprint invoices months or years after they were originally raised, whilst the accumulated data is used to provide a massive range of sales analysis information. For example, the system can show who has been buying selected products over any period of time since the system was first used - or to provide powerful Gap Analysis, showing who has not been buying products or who has recently stopped buying particular products.
The Cash Book is used to manage both your Petty Cash and your Bank Accounts. Full facilities exist to cover the reconciliation of bank statements, entry and allocation of cash receipts and cash payments, along with standing orders and, on multi currency systems, support for currency bank accounts.
The Stock Ledger within axis diplomat can be used as a full stock control system or as a means to simplify invoicing and purchasing.
For systems that are to be used for full stock control, all of the functions required will be found within the axis diplomat Stock Ledger. These include stock take facilities, stock valuations and detailed stock movement analysis.
The standard Invoicing module allows creation of invoices and credit notes, using free-typed descriptions and prices or by utilising the stock ledger. Items selected from the Stock Ledger will automatically pick up the correct cost and selling price information and simultaneously update stock on hand figures. Most systems, however, will use the integrated Sales Order Processing and Purchase Order Processing modules to handle the day-to-day trade.
