It’s Friday - Time to Print Accounts Payable Check Payments

Visit Website View Our Posts

You dread this “payment processing day” of the week because of the hours you spend selecting invoices for payment, getting approval, finding the invoice backup, printing/stuffing/mailing checks and answering remittance questions.  If your AP team had an AP automation solution with electronic payment processing, then you could reconcile corporate credit cards before payment or easily track the use tax and accruals for month end – and even take a few minutes for winter fun!

Your CFO desires tools to provide greater visibility into spending for better cash management. An electronic payment solution will deliver the means to pay vendors at the right time and with the right payment method.  Does your CFO have an easy way to access this crucial information today?

To help both AP and your CFO take back their Fridays from manual payment processing, we’d like to share with you a few helpful resources on how electronic payables (ePayables) solutions are business essentials.

A new report by leading research firm PayStream covers payment management strategies and typical payment methods, challenges and goals based on a survey of over 300 accounting professionals.  While paper check payments are more vulnerable to fraud, late payments and missed discounts, they still remain the preferred payment method.  However, ePayables are increasingly gaining traction and shifting the payments culture of organizations - here’s how:

  • Holistic ePayables streamline and provide visibility to the complete purchasing process – from requisition to purchase order to receipt to invoice to payment.
  • A variety of payment methods – ACH, virtual credit card and even check (if necessary) – can be used in a single payment batch, allowing organizations to select options with more float.
  • Segregation of duties for payment initiation and approval as well as two-factor authentication enforce more secure payments.
  • Virtual credit cards increase ROI by providing the opportunity to earn significant cash rebates.
