ARLINGTON, Texas — Intura Solutions, a leading supplier of POS and business management software for quick-service, fast-casual and delivery-restaurant concepts, announced the addition of an accounts receivable function to its Intura Vision POS package.
According to a news release, the accounts receivable features built into the Intura Vision POS system extend the order-taking system with a mechanism to charge customer orders to an account. (Read also The one-button answer to corporate accounts.)
"During the past year, we discussed with our clients their specific needs in terms of addressing the management of their most important customers that include business and personal accounts," said Gary W. Peek II, president of Intura. "The result is a fully integrated accounts receivable system that manages the entire lifecycle of a customer order all the way through invoices, statements and collection issues."
The system provides the ability to generate customized invoices, print monthly statements, assess finance charges, print summary and detail aging reports and enter payments, credits and debits. In addition, the customer credit portion of the system was extended to utilize the accounts receivable technology for more powerful tracking and management of in-store credits.
"The new accounts receivable functionality allows us to eliminate manual ticket books used in the stores since we can now maintain a permanent record of each customer invoice in our system," said Daniel Morrison, president of American Plus Inc., operator of more than 60 Pizza Plus locations in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina. "Our managers can be more efficient since they will have the information at the store to answer customer's questions about their accounts. It also provides a better method for us to manage our employee food purchase program by storing employee purchases in a charge account and later deducting those purchases from their payroll check."
Additionally, Intura Vision now offers a new Customer Lookup feature that allows clients to assign one or more customized IDs to each customer account. The Customer Lookup feature can be used to store an ID for club members, employee badge numbers or loyalty cards, and can be used by swiping a magnetic stripe card, scanning a barcode or by keyboard.
Intura also has improved its globalization features, added support for Microsoft MapPoint 2006 and upgraded the Intura Vision database to the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server to take advantage of performance and security enhancements.
