This is a module you already have so you don’t need to purchase anything, it will save your staff time, and increase your company’s bottom line by allowing members of your team to use the time saved using this feature to perform other tasks.
Scheduled payments can be created from any posted documents. These schedules allow you to specify any interest rate, frequency of your payments, number of payments, and the accounts that are specific to your purchase.
