Invoice Procedures

Our accounting dept looks for the signed BOL as proof of delivery. Without
it they do not invoice, even if Vantage shows the part has shipped.

Todd:

Whenever I find someone wasting time, I always ask their boss why it started
to begin with. Then somehow show why it is a waste of time.

Some people I've worked with NEVER had a good reason to why they do
anything, just that it was done before so they continue the tradition.

I'd make sure with upper management (meaning CFO or Controller). If her
boss thinks it's silly she will stop insisting.
To me it really is a waste of everyone's time, even AR's time.

We manufacture pressure sensitive films. On a real basic level think of
it as bumper sticker material. If you have ever seen advertisements
stuck on the floor of your local supermarket, we make the material those
are printed on.

Out of curiosity, what industry are you in? Our industry (aerospace)
requires hard copies on a lot of paperwork for up to 7 years. But we
are scanning the paper to get rid of the paper.

Subject: [Vantage] Invoice Procedures


Can I get a little advice from the list? We have a few distribution
warehouses around the country. They use Vantage via Terminal Services
to
create Sales Orders, Pack Slips and Bill of Ladings for their
shipments.
Historically, at the end of each day the warehouse manager would fax
copies of all of these documents to our AR person. I was recently on
site at one of these facilities and noticed this procedure. It seemed
like a waste of time and paper. Our warehouse mangers agree but are
told
this is necessary for AR to do invoices. I am in favor of eliminating
this procedure however our AR person insists that she needs a hard
copy
of the SO, the pack slip and the bill of lading in order to invoice. I
have asked why several times and have not been given an adequate
reason
other than "I just do". Can anyone out there offer me their opinion on
whether or not your companies use hard copies, invoice straight from
Get
Shipments, etc? I would like this to be paperless if it is possible
but
do not want to make more work for AR. All comments are welcome.

Thanks

Todd, the only reason we need a hard copy of the paperwork is for a
possible sales tax audit. The auditor usually wants to see the BOL to
verify where it was shipped to.

Now to actually 'answer' your question, I see no need to do this
for invoicing. If everyone is inputting into Vantage remotely, all she
needs to invoice are the packslips.

She doesn't really need to hold a hardcopy of everything unless there is
some need in your industry.

Just my opinion.

Todd:

Whenever I find someone wasting time, I always ask their boss why it started
to begin with. Then somehow show why it is a waste of time.

Some people I've worked with NEVER had a good reason to why they do
anything, just that it was done before so they continue the tradition.

I'd make sure with upper management (meaning CFO or Controller). If her
boss thinks it's silly she will stop insisting.
To me it really is a waste of everyone's time, even AR's time.

We manufacture pressure sensitive films. On a real basic level think of
it as bumper sticker material. If you have ever seen advertisements
stuck on the floor of your local supermarket, we make the material those
are printed on.

Todd:

Out of curiosity, what industry are you in? Our industry (aerospace)
requires hard copies on a lot of paperwork for up to 7 years. But we
are scanning the paper to get rid of the paper.

Subject: [Vantage] Invoice Procedures


Can I get a little advice from the list? We have a few distribution
warehouses around the country. They use Vantage via Terminal Services
to
create Sales Orders, Pack Slips and Bill of Ladings for their
shipments.
Historically, at the end of each day the warehouse manager would fax
copies of all of these documents to our AR person. I was recently on
site at one of these facilities and noticed this procedure. It seemed
like a waste of time and paper. Our warehouse mangers agree but are
told
this is necessary for AR to do invoices. I am in favor of eliminating
this procedure however our AR person insists that she needs a hard
copy
of the SO, the pack slip and the bill of lading in order to invoice. I
have asked why several times and have not been given an adequate
reason
other than "I just do". Can anyone out there offer me their opinion on
whether or not your companies use hard copies, invoice straight from
Get
Shipments, etc? I would like this to be paperless if it is possible
but
do not want to make more work for AR. All comments are welcome.

Thanks
Todd
