Customer Center and A/R Invoicing Functions

In American Contractor, you entered A/R invoices in the Customer Center or the Construction Center. These invoices were entered for a specific batch record. From the batch record, you could then edit, delete, add transactions and distributions, print, review and post the invoice batches.

In ProContractor, you can easily access functions for all of these tasks in the All Tasks pane. They are grouped according to their purpose:

  • Functions for manual invoices are grouped under Customers > Invoices.

  • Functions for progress billing invoices, AIA billing invoices, and retention invoices are grouped under Projects > Contract Billing.

  • Functions for time & material invoices, over-the-counter invoices, and cost-plus billing invoices are grouped under Projects > T&M Billing.

  • Functions for monthly interest charges are grouped under Customers > Finance Charges.

  • Functions for payments received from customers (called "on-account receipts" in American Contractor) are grouped under Customers > Cash Receipts.

  • Functions for payments received from someone other than a customer (called "cash receipts" in American Contractor, are grouped under Financial > Journal.

  • Functions related to customer lien notices and releases are grouped under Projects > Lien Management.

In general, job-related functions are in the Projects module, and customer-related functions are in the Customers module.
