Integrated Receivables solutions eliminate the day-to-day roadblocks that make it near-impossible to improve access to working capital and better manage liquidity. The solution automates payment processing to increase straight-through-processing (STP) across all payment channels and accelerate the application of cash to the balance sheet.
Proliferation of payment channels. Declining B2B check payments. Industry gravitation toward electronic payments such as ACH. These industry trends and more are the driving forces behind today’s receivables management challenges. The difficulty of receivables processing cuts across all companies, from small commercial to the largest multi-billion enterprise.
Corporations have sought a way to improve their payment and invoice matching solutions for all payment streams, particularly for new electronic streams. Most importantly, they are in need of an end-to-end solution that matches remittance data to electronic payments.
Today, corporations receive payments without remittance details and then must manually find the remittance detail in separate systems, such as email. This can waste valuable person-hours, delay cash application and result in errors.
Integrated Receivables solutions eliminate repetitive, manual workflows, automatically apply business rules, and solve the key pain points in posting paper and electronic payments. The end result is enhanced visibility into all incoming payment information in a single location. The technology normalizes data across all payment types and can provide comprehensive reporting and analysis. The solution’s robust technology helps organizations achieve fully automated payment processing from start to finish.
Remote Deposit Capture & Aggregation
Capture and aggregate payments and documentation including mobile devices, in-house or third party lockbox, ACH, Wire, EDI, credit card and more. Digitize customer correspondence and supporting documentation and combine information from all sources, paper and electronic, into one view that spans the organization.
Remittance Processing & Intelligent Matching
Artificial Intelligence, machine-learning, and sophisticated algorithms automate matching of electronic ACH payments to open invoices to speed cash application and achieve higher rates of straight-through processing.
Research & Analytics
Google-like search tools help manage change-of-address requests and allow for the look-up of payment status (paid, unpaid, rejected) and associated information and documentation, including customer correspondence. Consolidated data streamlines customer support, allowing for an improved customer experience. Customizable dashboards can also be configured for ease of use by any member of your team within a single portal to help make real-time business decisions.
As more payments move to ACH, posting them has become more manual instead of automated. What was thought to be a tool for increasing payments speed has turned into something that isn’t so straightforward. While funds arrive electronically, critical payment information may arrive separately via email, postal mail, web portal, fax or other means. This causes additional research time to locate missing data in emails and manually update ERP systems—creating unnecessary duplicate work and slowing the receivables process. Deluxe’s IR solution can read ACH remittances exactly like all other remittance documents, with no time-consuming, manual “template-learning” process that is required by many other solutions in the market today. With Deluxe’s advanced remittance processing and intelligent matching, the payment is matched with the invoice remittance details electronically, using machine learning and sophisticated algorithms, resulting in greater straight-through processing rates, cost reduction and faster cash application.
A modern user interface with a consolidated dashboard, reporting, and sophisticated drill-down search capabilities all eliminate the need to log into multiple, disparate portals to research original payment information.
Real-time receivables insights enhances visibility, allowing for easier, faster identification of risk and enhanced credit risk management.
Integrate multiple ERP platforms and newly acquired entities while supporting enterprise efficiency goals and improving ability to factor receivables as an alternative funding source.

Most importantly, IR solutions enable corporations to focus on strategic initiatives rather than day-to-day challenges by automating what used to be a manual and time-consuming cash application process.
