Finance and accounting
Finance and accounting are at the heart of iplicit. When it comes to business finance you’d expect any ERP solution to cover all the basics. But you’ll be amazed at the comprehensive breadth and depth of functionality available within iplicit.
Customer quotes and invoices
Create and send branded quotes and invoices. Sales quotes can become invoices in a click. Invoices can be based on products supplied, jobs done, timesheets, regular charges, data from other systems or created on an ad-hoc basis. All invoices and quotes can be workflow routed before sending and stored in the document repository.
Purchase orders and supplier invoices
Generate purchase orders quickly, link them to products and services, send them automatically for authorisation and then out to your suppliers. When goods are received, issue receipts and take care of stock control. It’s easy to log, authorise and settle supplier invoices too. Use ‘quick payment’ or schedule in a run. Prioritise payments with the ‘aged creditors’ tool and make adjustments any time.
Cash management and bank reconciliation
Auditing and reconciling financial transactions is no longer a laborious task. With imported bank statements, iplicit recognises transactions based on rules and history. Simply check and click OK. Cash receipts and payments are easily documented, including printing or emailing appropriate receipts. And you’ll always know your cash position across multiple bank accounts. iplicit’s unique cashflow forecasting monitors your cash situation based on outstanding and regular transactions, plus predicted income and expenditure.
Manage your credit control risk effortlessly. Monitor collection performance across all customers and any other criteria you wish. Use aged debt reporting to see where to focus your activities. And issue statements and reminder letters automatically.
Your commercial tax responsibilities are easily looked after, using tax codes, rates and tax systems to generate the figures you need for returns. Produce a VAT estimate at any time and, when you’re ready, automatically submit your return to HMRC.
Expenses and timesheets
Staff can use iplicit to record and submit their expenses claims and timesheets. You can review expenses, and time can be assigned to a cost centre and/or a project to monitor performance and efficiency. This information can also feed through to sales invoices.
However you pay your staff and suppliers, iplicit eases the process – from making quick payments to an individual or company to multiple creditor transactions based on your selection criteria. Authorisation, reporting and payment files are all there for you.
Period end accounts
Manage accounting transactions for key business periods seamlessly. Ensure month-end control checks, reconciliations and accounting adjustments are finalised to meet management reporting deadlines. Lock down transaction postings, so data is always entered in the correct accounting period. And throughout the process, iplicit will keep key personnel updated on progress.
Multi-currency and multi-company management
iplicit handles the complexities of doing business. Manage the finances of several businesses together. Log transactions in multiple currencies if you trade overseas and get reports in your favoured currencies.
Resource and project management
iplicit is the go-to place for all your key business information, even pulling in data from your existing systems to avoid any duplication of effort. And being in one central place means you can cross-reference information, run valuable reports and analyse your business efficiently.
Details on customers, prospects, suppliers and staff are available wherever you are, together with transactional records. Store important correspondence in your document repository and link these directly to relevant contacts. If you use third-party software for any of this information, iplicit works with all leading applications.
People resource management
People make a business, which is why iplicit is also your HR tool. Keep employee records, manage absence and holidays, roster staff with our resource scheduler and keep timesheets for all relevant employees, which you can also incorporate when invoicing customers.
Run projects, set tasks, monitor progress and communicate as part of a team. iplicit is the ideal tool to manage projects and workloads. Create your own projects, assign tasks, set deadline dates and issue reminders. You can prioritise tasks by order of importance or group them into categories, and even record the project against transactions for reporting and cost/income analysis.
iplicit easily adapts and refines to match your needs exactly and grow as you grow. Any data that’s relevant to your business can be recorded. An example of this is might be property management – recording leases, rents, service charges, valuations and more – and integrating with the rest of iplicit to invoice tenants automaticallyi
Dashboards, reports and enquiries
See the big picture at a glance and get easy access to highly detailed analysis. iplicit gives you an extensive set of standard reports and graphic analyses out of the box, and of course we’ll set up any others you might need during implementation. And our phenomenally powerful enquiry system and report generator lets you dig down (or up or across) to whatever level you like.
Dashboards give you summary charts and overviews for any aspect of your business performance: bank balances and cashflow, sales analyses, purchase and expenses, absence and holidays, debtors and suppliers. Key data is shown graphically, instantly, with the ability to drill down for detail. You can even create personalised dashboards comprising your most critical charts and overviews.
Comprehensive sets of reports
Working across a broad range of organisations, we’ve seen many different reporting requirements over the last 20 years, So we’ve created a comprehensive suite of great reports to give you everything you need. All at the touch of a button.
Powerful enquiry and report generator
Start with a standard report and modify it or create your own from scratch. You can customise any enquiry and present as tables of data, including pivot tables. There’s also our tree functionality, which relates data to your reporting hierarchy needs, and these relationships are all available within your reports and enquiries. Naturally all reports can be produced as PDFs and information can be exported in many formats such as Excel.
What happens next really matters. It can transform everything. To make those big decisions, you need the right information about your current position and the ability to forecast and model scenarios quickly and accurately. That’s where iplicit steps in.
