Melton Technologies, a supplier of the PC-based Horizon trucking software, developed a new accounting module to integrate into their product suite of transportation and logistical solutions.
The Horizon Enterprise Accounting software is an advanced accounting system that gives fleets the ability to seamlessly manage all aspects of their accounting operations easily and in real-time, the company says.
“Unlike the competitive systems which have integrated generic accounting programs into their software, we developed our own proprietary accounting software program. By writing our own software we were able to design the program around industry-specific cost-accounting practices resulting in smoother real-time integration into our customers’ daily operations,” says Melton, President of Melton Technologies.
Because the software was designed around these practices, the program provides the user with many advantages such as customizable payroll schemes that accommodate individual companies’ driver payment related issues, he says.
With a design that replicates the standard Windows programs, the Horizon Enterprise Accounting system fully integrates into Melton Technologies’ Horizon Billing software – an accounts receivable program. This gives users the ability to leverage the familiarity and power of the billing program within the Enterprise Accounting software, providing fleets with the capacity to create invoices and conduct payroll operations seamlessly.
The Horizon Enterprise Accounting software module utilizes multi-level, role-based security controls that effectively protect the privacy of critical company, customer and employee information. A built-in custom report writer gives users the ability to generate reports that can incorporate information gathered from any Horizon module.
The SQL server-based Horizon core applications include modules for dispatch, billing and driver settlements, along with other customizable pieces that can be adapted to meet customer’s needs.
