Within Solna, a Customer is anyone you might issue an invoice to, provide a service to, or sell a product to. A Customer may be a business or an individual. Solna pulls company information from Companies House (UK) to ensure this process is fast, downloading the relevant credit risk data associated with that customer. If you can’t find your customers via Solna’s automatic search tool, you can easily create a customer manually.


When you open up a customer screen, you see the following screens:


  • Invoices

  • Reminders

  • Credit Risk

  • Overview

  • Settings 

  • Notes


How to view your customers invoices, credit scores, invoice reminders and settings (video)

This screen enables you to know who you’re getting into business with and will give you the necessary information to mitigate late payments and defaults.


Overview: This screen contains important company information such as: address, telephone, primary contact and the company status.


Settings: This screen allows you to set custom settings for a particular customer as default (e.g., Payment Terms).
