Mass Print AP Checks (All Communities)




If you are managing a portfolio of communities, the Accounts Payable department is one of the first areas in which accounting can be automated. Bills are already arriving in the mail for a variety of communities, all mashed together.

Rather than needing to create piles of bills and check runs for each individual community, the AP Batch Processing function allows you to process bills and write checks for all of your communities, all at once, while still maintaining the individual standards specific to each community.

With TOPS [ONE] you don't have to worry about only being able to print a check once, you can view and print the check as many times as you need to.
