Accounts Receivable may be installed as a stand-alone application, or as part of a system that includes General Ledger, Budget Analysis, General Subsidiary, Accounts Payable, Inventory Control, Purchase Orders, Order Entry, Commission Accounting, and Sales Analysis. In a multi-application system, data can be exchanged between applications.
If your system includes Order Entry, Accounts Receivable receives customer invoice postings from that application. Operation of Order Entry requires the existence of Accounts Receivable and Inventory Control.
Information from Accounts Receivable is sent to General Ledger, General Subsidiary, Sales Analysis, Commission Accounting, and Accounts Payable. However, none of these applications are necessary for the functioning of Accounts Receivable. If General Ledger is not installed, however, account verification will not be performed within Accounts Receivable.
