ePayables is an electronic payment solution that replaces your check payments with a virtual card assigned to each vendor. When an invoice is received and approved, the AP department sends an EFT (electronic file transfer) to the bank indicating the disbursement amount for each card.
An EDI 820 is an electronic exchange of payment and remittance advice between trading partners. It enables companies to streamline the supply chain process and eliminates the need to send paper documents. As part of invoice workflow management, EDI 820 automation submits data directly into the receivable system and keeps the cost of business down.
Remittance advice is a detailed notification of the payment amount sent by a payer to a payee. Examples are customer to vendor or supplier, employer to employee, bank or money transfer company to the receiver of funds, or from a claims processor to a healthcare provider as electronic remittance advice (ERA) when patients’ insurance claims are paid.
