“Our finance and treasury teams save 25 hours a week using AccessPay as a digital bank connection”
Karen Fagen, Head of Treasury Operations at ITV
Enable accurate, timely reconciliation and reporting
AccessPay automatically collects statement data from across your banking estate on an intra-daily basis. Removing manual statement retrieval processes gives you access to accurate transaction data in near-real-time for improved cash reporting and reconciliation.
Bank statement data is automatically sent directly to your ERP, TMS or reconciliation tool in a compatible format, helping you move a step beyond legacy record-to-report processes and focus your team on delivering value, not data entry.
Specialists in corporate-to-bank connectivity
ERP and TMS vendors are not specialists in corporate-to-bank connectivity. Relying on a single vendor to deliver bank connectivity alongside their standard offering can prove to be a risky strategy for a number of reasons:
- Replacing that vendor means you would also need to start from scratch with establishing bank connectivity
- Bank connectivity is not at the heart of what they do – meaning the level of knowledge and expertise required to deliver a quality service is often limited in comparison to working with a specialist corporate-to-bank connectivity vendor
That’s why bank connectivity is all we do. AccessPay can integrate with any ERP or TMS – acting as the connector between your back-office systems and your banks so that you can benefit from best-in-class bank connectivity without being tied down by your ERP/TMS vendor.
Say goodbye to online banking portals
Using bank portals to download bank statement data is both inefficient and risky; creating opportunities for fraud and error to occur through manual manipulation of transaction data. With the cost of fraud and error to corporates on the rise, the use of banking portals to download bank statements is increasingly being flagged by compliance teams as a risk factor during internal audits.
AccessPay automates the download, transformation and import of statement data in to your back-office securely. Cutting out risky manual processes and freeing up your team from repetitive data entry to get back to doing what they do best – delivering value-add tasks.
Remove risk, increase control
You wouldn’t share your your personal banking log in information with anyone else – so why should corporate banking be any different?
Having tight control over your corporate banking environment is crucial to reducing risks and improving the accuracy of data and reporting. Gone are the days of threat actors intercepting online banking credentials and reporting inaccuracies due to manual collation of data.
Using AccessPay eliminates the need for sharing online banking credentials with multiple staff members and cuts out the risk of human error.Learn About Control
Move data in minutes, not hours
Want access to the most timely, accurate transaction data? Why wait? Get statements into your back-office as quickly as you can receive them from the bank.
AccessPay enables straight-through processing of statement feeds by automatically downloading and transforming the data in to whatever format you need via API or SFTP connection. Cutting processing times from hours to minutes in comparison to more manual methods like online banking.
“The ability to scale connectivity to multiple banks, jurisdictions and payment methods through a single standard connectivity process was a real benefit to us.”
Christopher Davies, Treasury Reporting Manager at NSG
How does it work?
AcessPay is the middle-layer between your back-office and your banking estate. Utilising an API or sFTP connection, AccessPay receives intra-day statement files from your all of your connected banks and automatically transforms them in to a format that’s consumable by your ERP, TMS or reconciliation tool.
With the ability to connect to any bank, AccessPay gives your finance and treasury team the capability to manage the entire corporate banking estate from one place. There’s no need to hire extra resource.
So whether you’re banking in EMEA, APAC or somewhere else, you can receive data from all your accounts and get it in to the right systems in minutes, no matter how many banks, accounts or countries you work in.
To understand how connectivity to your banks is established choose from the options below:
Connect to the SWIFT network to receive daily and intra-day MT messages from multiple banks using AccessPay’s BIC. If you are already connected to the SWIFT network, we can also utilize your BIC to facilitate the connection to your banking estate. MT messages are then automatically transformed in to a format that’s compatible with your back-office before being uploaded to a secure location of your choice.Learn More
Host-to-Host Bank Connectivity
If you require access to bank statements from a small number of key banking partners, AccessPay is able to build and maintain a custom host-to-host bank connection on your behalf. Once built, AccessPay receives statements via your bank connection in an MT format before automatically transforming them in to a consumable format and uploading them to a secure location of your choice.Learn More
