Credit Control

Tall Emu gives you the tools you need to ensure customer status and payment behaviour is fully visible, and controllable, by you.

  • When you view a customer record, you’ll see key information in a glance – customer grade, current outstanding balance, open quotes, open sales orders, average order value and more.
  • Set payment terms for different customers, limiting the flexibility for risky payers and providing leniency for long-term customers or trusted accounts.
  • Set credit limits to automatically restrict purchasing above a certain outstanding finance threshold.
  • Enable credit control so that records display warnings when a customer is either outside their payment terms or over their credit limit or on credit stop.
Customer sales information

Open any customer record (Company or Contact) and you will be able to view a sales summary that shows you:

  • Lifetime value
  • Current balance
  • Unallocated
  • Open Quotes
  • First Quote Date
  • Last Quote Date
  • Open Sales Orders
  • First Order Date
  • Last Order Date
  • Last Order Delivery Date
  • Average Order Amount
  • Total Invoice Amount
