Individual household balances are maintained by the system, in conjunction with a range of different payment schemes. The extent of the schemes available offers users protection from future legislative changes to cash collection by minors.
Alternatively, rather than maintain household balances, the system can be used to manage DD customers as part of a single supply point at either agent or delivery round level.
Although the prospect of maintaining individual balances across a large-scale network may seem daunting, the system has been designed to minimise the level of administration involved. In addition, the integrated relationship between the Direct Delivery, the Canvassing and the Circulation systems removes the need for double keying of new orders and supply alterations.
