Billing Center: Overview

What is a Daysheet and Why is it Important?

Processing the daysheet, also known as closing the day, is a way of formally signing off on any further changes. When a daysheet is run, the charges, payments, adjustments, voids and transfers are stamped with a daysheet date and a daysheet ID. This aggregated data allows for accurate and secure reporting. It also makes it possible to track starting and ending A/R for any period of time. If a change is necessary to a daysheeted transaction, a complete audit trail is created for tracking purposes.
