Cheque printing in Dynamics GP Great Plains
The good, bad and ugly of GP Cheque printing
A member of our GP consulting team had the distinct pleasure of providing coverage for our finance department over the holidays. This included opening mail and performing some simple AR processes / bank deposits. While looking at client renewal cheques, she noticed much of the good, the bad and the ugly of GP Cheque printing, which later became a point of inspiration for this month’s newsletter. Let’s start with a fictitious sample, of a “bad cheque” based on a combination of real examples seen by our AR team.
Sample “Bad Cheque” (Dynamics GP check printing)
The risk of “Bad Cheques”
- Ugly, mis-aligned cheques are a poor representation of your company’s brand and attention to detail
- Poor alignment creates an increased exposure to forgery and fraud (Example $__60.97 vs $9060.97)
- Poor font choices (too small, too thin, too light), make it harder for your suppliers to automate their processes with cheque scanning
Sample “Good Cheque” (Dynamics GP Check printing)
What makes a “Good Cheque”
- Text is an appropriate size and aligns with each of the relevant headings
- The dollar sign $ is close to the dollar value, and the verbose printed amount is left aligned to reduce fraud
- Payee name is in ALL CAPS as required for Cheque scanning
- Paper Cheque stock has built in security features to prevent forgery
