Job advances

Hi all,

I am wondering if I can exploit the collective wisdom of this group to
come up with a process for something we wish to do when we install one
of our units.

We usually send a Service Representative to a site to do a pre-install
inspection, and before they go, we start a job for the installation.
Usually there are costs associated with this visit, and we want to
cash-advance (this cost going to the job) Currently, we initiate a P.O.,
and process the invoice and issue cash to the representative.

The problem with this method, while it gets cost to the job, sometimes
the representative doesn't use all the advance, and we haven't figured
out how to get the balance back to the job.

Has anyone handled things like this?

Thanks!
Duane
