What determines the account “Age”?

The age of the account refers to how many days have passed since the account was added to Simplicity. When an account is first added, the age is set to “0”, and increases by 1 each day.

What is “Account Type”?

The Account Type field on the Claim Details page of each account defines the account by default as NONCOMM, or non-commercial. It can be changed to COMM using the provided box to indicate that the account is a commercial debt. When importing accounts, this can be designated in the spreadsheet with a column labeled as “C” for COMM or a column labeled as “N” for NONCOMM.

A question we often get is, "How do I run my end of month?" Because of the array of businesses that use SimplicityCollect, and the various laws from different states, counties, and even countries that can affect what you need, we've made our software very flexible. There is no one "right way" we can definitively outline to run your end of month records, but we will provide some of the most common methods and tools used for the process.
