Imagine how different your accounts receivables (AR) operations would look when you have the full confidence that your FTE resources are maximizing every interaction they have. It's easy to forget sometimes, but each time one of your team members has to look at a payment, it costs you money!

From the Front Lines: Three Steps to Achieve Straight-Through Processing Leveraging RDC, EIPP and Recurring Payments on a Truly Integrated Receivables Platform
