The importance of an accurate and current General Ledger is critical to making financial decisions that affect your return on investment. ProfitMaster Canada's General Ledger works in three ways to keep this information current and easily available. First, up-to-date information about every phase of the business - Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Inventory, Sales, and Cash Audit - can be found through General Ledger inquiries and reports. Second, the financial statements produced by the General Ledger application can help plan for budgets, forecast profits, and view the growth of the company. And third, as an option, the G/L can be directed to work with Operations Management to automatically post daily transactions to the ledger for even greater assurance that the financial information is complete and accurate.
