Group email / fax / print capabilities for Invoices, Statements, and Order Acknowledgements when printed batch style (Activefax required)

Now available - whenever it's time to print your nightly Group A/R Invoice run, Group Order Acknowledgement Print run, or even an end of month Group A/R Statement run - each customer can be configured individually to have their respective documents Printed / Emailed / Faxed - or any combination of the same - including multiple email or fax requirements if needed ! ( See example screens below)

As an example, an individual customer may request to be configured to have their A/R Invoices Emailed to 2 different personnel in their Accounting Department.  Another customer may allow Faxed invoices to their purchasing department.  Some customers may even desire Emailed Order Acknowledgments once their orders have been placed on a daily basis.  All of the above scenarios can now be easily accomplished.

Each time you can avoid printing a physical document - you can save the cost of postage plus the employee expense of time spent stuffing envelopes. Even faxing invoices can become a money saver.  Considering the price of today's typical long distance services, Faxing invoices is usually more cost effective than normal postage rates.  Simply setup a Group Invoice Print Run in your nightly batch, and review the Group Fax / Email reporting structure the next morning to review which items were emailed and faxed to whom. 

Get your system upgraded today and start saving time and money immediately !

Stay tuned - We will keep you up-to-speed in REALTIME  !
