A Christmas Carol: Advanced Payables and Receivables Management Redesigns

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

In the novel A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, clerk Bob Cratchit famously spent his Christmas eve doing the final 'bank reconciliation' for his employer, Ebenezer Scrooge. Only when reconciliation was complete he was allowed to go home for Christmas dinner with his family. Nowadays bank reconciliation isn't such a punishment anymore thanks to accounting and ERP software but there is still a lot to improve. Too late for Bob now but for all other incumbent financial staff among you we have some good news.

We have been working on enhancing the user experience in Customer Payment (AR), Supplier Payment (AP) and Financial Account Management, including a full reconciliation process. We now want to validate our designs with you to make sure we are on the right track.

So make life better for all Bobs out there and have a look at our videos and give your feedback on the User Experience Lab forum

Happy Christmas in advance!

Hi Rob,

The video on Financial Accounts & Bank Reconciliation looks interesting and it demonstrates a very useful feature, I would however like to know that when this kind of functionality will be made available for OB end users.

Thanks and Regards
