consider software for payment processing options that over burden their accounting functions, creating multiple processes and loss of control.

High Paper Processing Costs – High
paper volumes generally mean increased
labor costs, administration, handling, printing,  and possibility of error. 


Reduced processing costs – With electronic payment and presentment, most if not all processes are eliminated.


Internal Security Concerns – Every business is concerned about security, fraud prevention, and employee theft. Business executives and managers must have sufficient controls over the movement of funds to determine without question which individual employee authorized specific transactions and funds transfer.


Internal Security Measures – Facta Vera solution can rout payments for viewing and approval with multi-layer thresholds for the ultimate in security measures, auditing and control.


Technical Software –Businesses can’t use overly technical software and custom coded tools to operate their business. Learning curves are too steep, maintenance and changes are time consumptive and expensive and employee training is difficult.


Non-Technical User Friendly – Facta Vera’s

Independent studies have pegged cost of processing paper cheques between $15 to $25.


Reduced Administration Costs - Electronic
Payment processing virtually eliminates the costs associated administration and handling.


Not predictable cash flow – Predicting when a payment will be cleared when it comes to paper cheques is impossible.


Predictable cash flow-
Electronic transactions are cleared on the date you have assigned by the bank.


Reconciliation – Reconciling paper cheques is a job on its own.  Tracking outstanding payments, canceling, reissuing, or wondering if it has been exposed to fraud, while balancing the matching of payee and dollar amounts is what AP staff has to do on daily basis.


Ease of reconciliation – Once electronic payment file has been submitted to the bank and accepted, all payments can be reconciled in your system.


Cheque is in the mail – Suppliers are constantly following up with AP staff as to the payment, and over the years have built in buffers of additional interest charges based on relationship rating.


Improved payee satisfaction – Electronic payments are on time, while still giving you the control of when to pay.  Improved relationship, generally leads to better rating and better rates and discounts.
