Receivables

Remote and Mobile Check Deposit – Spend more time running your business than running to the bank. Without leaving your office, you can deposit checks into multiple accounts and reduce risk with faster check clearing.

Lockbox Servicing – Our lockbox servicing can help accelerate receivables and collections by reducing the delays related to float and mail processing, increasing cash flow opportunities through more efficient processes.

Merchant Card Processing – We can provide you with cutting-edge debit and credit card processing solutions to help you collect payments more effectively and efficiently, with our Merchant Services partnership with First Data. If you have an existing Merchant Account, we’ll review your current rates and fees to ensure you receive the most competitive, cost-effective solutions available.

 

Disbursements

Automatic Clearing House (ACH) – ACH is one of the fastest and most cost-effective methods for moving funds electronically. ACH may be used for direct deposit (payroll), direct debit and tax payments.

Wire Transfers – Initiate same-date and/or future dated Domestic and International wires quickly and conveniently from your computer, approve your wires remotely from your mobile device and receive email notifications and alerts for your wire activity. 

 

Fraud Prevention

Positive Pay/Account Reconciliation – Help prevent check altering and forgery and automate your account reconciliation process. That means you spend less time and money on reconciling accounts, and gain a streamlined approach to check storage and retrieval.

ACH Positive Pay – Safeguard against fraudulent activity by filtering or blocking unauthorized electronic transactions. Any item that meets the criteria you establish will automatically post or be rejected based on the filters or blocks that you set up.
