How to Set Up and Use the Credit Limits Feature

Enabling the credit limit feature within X Dispatch allows a user to import and reference QuickBooks accounts receivable and aging data to easily monitor the line of credit for a specific customer. This tool can ensure that orders are not placed for any customer who is over their credit limit, warn when a customer has reached their credit limit and can keep track of the invoiced and un-invoiced order amounts.
