Consolidated invoicing allows you to create a single sales order that you can ship against multiple times. The customer receives one invoice that includes all shipments.
Before selecting the multi-shipment invoicing option, note the following information about how Inform ERP handles statements and posting for partial shipments:
For multi-shipment invoices, customer terms are dated from the last partial shipment. The Customer Statement and Cash Receipts Posting exclude partial posts and show only the final invoice after it is generated. As partial shipments are invoiced, they are marked as "Disputed" and added to the A/R Aging Report. Taxes may round as a result of multi-shipment invoices and their associated charges.
Manually printing a partial shipment generates a Proof of Delivery document.
