Daily Batch Processing

Collect! provides batch processing functions that enable you to manage your accounts quickly.

Scheduled Batch Letters is used to print your daily queued letter batch, output a file to letter service, print mailing labels and set other choices to control what is printed in the batch.

Batch Processing opens the Batch Processing form. There are many processes that may be performed in a batch. Run a contact plan on a batch of accounts, perform automatic scheduling, assign accounts to operators, group accounts together, prepare accounts for reporting to credit bureaus.

Please press F1 for more information when you are on the Batch Processing form.

Calculate All Totals lets you recalculate your financials. You are able to recalculate interest, fees, debtor totals and client totals for a chosen date range. Please press F1 for more information when you are on the Recalculate Totals form.

Useful Note Batch processes may tax the system heavily, simulating the actions of one hundred users at a time! For fastest batch operations, use Collect! when you have EXCLUSIVE access. You can speed this up even more if you run batch processes from your Server, using LOCAL protocol.

Access Daily Batch Processes from the Main Menu, Daily Administration button.
