Every customer (company or contact/individual) automatically has an account. By creating the ability to treat an individual and/or a company as a customer we needed to give users the ability to view, in one place, all their customers without having to move between the Companies and Contacts modules. The accounts module allows easy control over credit limits, outstanding invoices to customers and receipts from customers.

There is also the ability to record all communications and set tasks to aid credit controllers in administration of the customers account.
