The Credit Application Processor add-on by Azamba

Oftentimes, when a salesperson is ready to put an order through or receives a PO for a prospect, they have to contact the accounting department and ask accounting to process a credit application for the potential customer.

Getting accounting involved like this can be really cumbersome, so what we’ve done is create the Credit Application Processor add-on to make that process a little more streamlined.

In this video, I’ll be demonstrating how the Credit Application Processor works, and how it can reduce errors and save you time—and headaches!—on your credit applications.

You can follow along below:

As you can see in the video, I have an account called ABC Skiing Jams inside of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales. We’ve created a “Ready for Credit App” process that is visible on each account record. So when we’re ready to promote ABC Skiing Jams to our accounting system, we can keep track of the entire process or flow inside of Dynamics rather than just sending accounting an email, which we all know can get lost or forgotten. All a sales person needs to do is change the “Ready for Credit App” to Yes.

The accounting department has a list of accounts that are ready for credit app displayed on their dashboard. When accounting sees that there’s an account populated in their dashboard, they can simply go to the record, process the credit app, and then flag it as “Credit App Sent.”

Your salespeople can also have a dashboard element that’s showing them all accounts that are ready for a credit application and have not been processed, and also those accounts that are ready for a credit application and have been processed, therefore notifying sales which credit applications are complete, and which sales they can proceed with.
