Selecting a deduction management system including cash application software can be confusing, so let’s start with a set of basic specifications based on your own operational needs and experience. You can add to it as you review various systems and see how others are interacting with the software. You will soon develop a list of must-haves, nice-to-haves, and not-that-important features.

In this age, it doesn’t make sense to consider installing client server systems — that is, installing an “in-house” system. With cloud applications readily available, implementing a SaaS system, which requires no software, hardware or installation, will include data linkage throughout various financial systems. With SaaS software, outside sales people, business partners, and even customers can have easy access to the same information to collaborate or participate in problem solving and accounts receivable management.

The deduction management system you use should start with proper management of cash application services, and has to be intuitive. Your challenge is to find a combination of capability and streamlined simplicity in one system — Carixa™ is the answer.
