Create Bank Transfer Files Formatted for Your Bank
You can create and store EFT bank transfer file formats specifically formatted to your bank’s designated requirements. There are pre-installed NACHA and CPA file formats to ensure compatibility for all banks in the United States and Canada. You can then customize any of these templates using EFT’s configuration tool to edit, add, or remove data fields and records to match your bank’s format. You can also create your own templates by building your own record types and data fields that meet your requirements.
Pay Vendor Invoices on Time and Reduce Customer Collection Times
You can use the SAP Business One Payment Wizard with EFT to easily create EFT/ACH payment transaction files. EFT will set up both Vendor Outgoing Payments and Customer Incoming Payments transactions. Simply click the “Generate EFT Files” button to create the file to upload to your bank to complete the payment process. Using EFT Effective Date, you also can schedule payment to be processed on a future date.
Instantly Notify Your Vendors When a Payment Is Made
By using EFT’s automatic remittance emails, you can notify your vendors when a payment has been made. The emails are generated with one click and include an attachment with the invoice number, date, total amount, and description of purchase. Data from any user-defined field can also be pulled into the invoice.
Enhance the Security of Your Accounts Payable and Receivable Processes
With EFT, you no longer have to deal with checks being lost in the mail, stolen, fraudulently cashed or securing check stock. The pre-note function validates vendor and customer payment information insuring that the transaction is sent to the right bank account. Throughout the process, the transmission between bank accounts is completely secure.
Automatically Keep a Record of All of Your EFT Payments
You can store a record of all of your EFT payments in one centralized location for quick access. During the initial EFT setup, you’ll be able to select a folder on your network to store all generated EFT files. You’ll then be able to view any EFT for verification purposes. In addition, because EFT integrates with the SAP Business One Payment Wizard, you can review the audit trail at both the transactional and file level.
