A few years ago, I had an idea for a post about batches and why I recommend them but I never followed through on the idea. I had written a short post last year about Transaction vs. Batch posting but that’s as close as I got to elaborating on my blog thought.

He had received what she deemed a lot of support from the folks who implemented them. They were rapidly approaching the end of a quarter (end of December) and she has only recently received October financials.
