Company Details Basics

The Company Details form takes a few minutes to complete. You will rarely come back to this, unless some information about your company has changed.

The information stored in this form is automatically used by different functions of Collect! Letters or reports to clients can place the name and address information for you, in the letterhead. You need only change the information in Company Details and every report where you use the information is automatically updated - no need to edit every report!

Some of the information on the Company Details form is also used when creating client records. This speeds up data entry. For instance, tax rate information, client numbering, and some information used for statement generation are taken from this form.

This information is database specific. If you use multiple databases to sign into Collect!, you could have one company set up with its details, and in another database, you could have a different company set up with different details.

If you will be using the Credit Bureau Reporting module, please pay particular attention to fields that are noted in the help as "CBR FIELD:" Collect! places information from these fields into the data files generated to send to the bureaus. This means that you must use the fields specified for CBR use as stated in the Metro Specifications. Failure to use them for appropriately may result in failure when your data is processed by the credit bureau data centers.
