The BAT Tracker server component can be installed and run on Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. Users can run BAT Tracker from an even wider variety of supported platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux desktops and even iPads. By default, data can only be accessed within the local office network, with no outside access allowed for maximum security.
Multi User System
Access to the BAT Tracker interface is granted on a per employee basis. Each user is assigned a unique username and password for security and auditing purposes. Access to the system is further restricted via user privileges.
Industry Standard Database
BAT Tracker is built upon the industry standard MySQL 5, a relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a part of the server component.
BAT Tracker provides efficient opening, management and closing (archiving) of debt cases. Users can quickly search for any clients or debtors within the system.
- Realtime Financial Summary
Once a debt case is created, the debtor details screen provides a realtime, at a glance financial summary. Details include total costs to date, total received from debtor, total sent to client, debtor balance and outstanding costs.
- Case Notes
Each debt case has an associated set of notes with note status and optional due date. The notes can be used for tracking all events related to a case, e.g. phone calls and emails between debtor and client.
- Case Payments
Each debt case has an associated set of payments. The types of payments include costs added, payment received, payment bounced, sale proceeds and adjustments.
- Daily Interest Payments
A client can sometimes arrange for a daily interest payment to be incurred, which is automatically calculated from the start date up-to and including the end date. Note that without an end date, the interest is calculated up-to and including the print date.
BAT Tracker provides a comprehensive range of ready-made reports and documents supporting the complete life-cycle of a debt case.
By default, all reports are output in the Portable Document Format (PDF), an open standard for document exchange. These reports can then be printed, emailed or archived. Some of the included reports are detailed below.
- Financial Summary
This is the final report to conclude the case. This includes a financial summary listing all payments made, a section covering all transactions, a summary of daily interest payments and optionally all case notes.
- Appraisal Letters
The Appraisal Call Report Sheet is for completion by the bailiff attending a premise to ensure all tasks are met. The Appraisal Letter informs the debtor of the outcome of the visit and the additional costs incurred.
- Auction Letters
Auction Letters are sent to the client and debtor informing each that assets removed will be offered for auction on a given date at a given venue.
- Interim Statement
When a payment is received by the debtor that reduces the balance owed to the client, an interim statement is sent to the client informing them of the total paid, total collected, and the balance outstanding.
- Financial Spreadsheet
This is for internal use only, and provides a highly detailed spreadsheet detailing every financial transaction related to the case. This can be especially useful in more complex case when dealing with any financial queries.
