The Accounting Seed Map provides you with an overview of how the Accounting Seed application works. The goal of the Accounting Map is to give you a graphical view of how frequently used processes in the application work and how they update the general ledger.
Color-coded shapes and sequential process flows provide a visual, at-a-glance summary of your accounts' movement through the system.
There are a total of eight diagrams in the Accounting Map. These maps are summarized below:
- General Ledger Balances - shows what data tables feed the general ledger.
- Billing - shows the process for billing a service or productized service that has no inventory.
- Payables - shows the process of purchasing and paying for services and non-inventoried supplies.
- Reporting - shows how reporting tools are connected to data in the application.
Please note that the last four maps are not required for review if you are NOT using Accounting Seed's Orders & Inventory functionality.
- Inventory Balances - shows the data tables that update both inventory quantity available and the general ledger.
- Billing for Inventory - shows the process for billing and order fulfillment of inventoried products.
- Payables for Inventory - shows how to purchase and pay for inventoried supplies.
- Managing Inventory - shows how to build products and perform warehouse transfers.
