Streamline Accounts Payables and Vendor Related Tasks to Save Time and Cut Costs

OpenPro systems are fully web-based, so data is available everywhere.

OpenPro's web-based Accounts Payable module helps you save time, reduce administrative costs and gain better control over your business processes by automating a wide range of vendor related tasks. It is a key component of OpenPro, a highly reliable, robust and integrated series of business applications that delivers a flexible, scalable and full featured total e-business management solution.

With a variety of features and options built into Openpro, the Accounts Payable module lets you specify vendor management procedures and processes to best suit the needs of your organization. The system makes it simple to enter a default General Ledger account to the vendor class or to a batch, and track expenses by department or location. You can also fulfill specific vendor requirements quickly and easily by assigning a default item, 1099 information, payment terms, and tax codes to each vendor.

In addition to providing maximum flexibility, the system gives you fast and easy access to the information you need for day-to-day tasks and period-end processing, including vendor statistics, aging and transaction information.

Accounts Payable simplifies vendor invoice voucher entry by automatically calculating sales taxes, discounts and due dates, as well as by defaulting General Ledger accounts, payment terms and 1099 information.
