"FTNI’s ETran platform has helped us tear down traditional A/R and payments silos, replacing them with a single, unified platform that has allowed us to scale and streamline receivables processes significantly over the past four years. The ability to rapidly and easily add new payment types and channels to a single receivables platform has helped us decrease our DSO by nearly 20 percent.”

How ETran Helps Distributors 

Accept, process, AND post any payment method (checks, ACH, credit card, cash), from any payment channel (called-in, mailed-in, lockbox, in-person, online, mobile)—all on a single, secure, SaaS platform.

Convenient online and AutoPay (automatic debit) payment options deliver your customers and your employees with the ability to maintain safe social distance when transacting.

FTNI’s online payment portal gives your customers the ability to view, select and pay open invoices via ACH or credit card based on each customer’s unique payment terms.

ETran's electronic invoice presentment and payment (EIPP) functionality enables distributors to leverage intelligent AutoPay features to automatically initiate payments based on open invoices. Proactive email reminders can also be sent to customers several days before the transaction, reminding them of their upcoming payment(s) and the invoices to be paid.

FTNI’s ETran Mobile payment application enables distributors' field representatives to securely accept check, ACH or credit card payments on the spot, while also easily associating the payment(s) with open invoices thanks to mobile invoice presentment and payment functionality within the app.

Complete, real-time oversight of all payments accepted in the field helps accelerate exception handling, increase cash flow and reduce DSO as payments can be worked earlier in the day. A/R departments no longer have to wait for reps or drivers to bring payments back to the office.

Our newest enhancements allow mobile users (e.g. sales reps or drivers) the convenience of only viewing their owned accounts/customers'/routes invoices.

Delivering customers with more convenient payment options via a single, unified platform, combined with the ability to automatically update back-office accounting/ERP/CRM receivables systems has helped leading distributors decrease DSO by upwards of five days in some cases.

After all, operating from a single platform gives you the oversight and efficiencies needed to free up your most valuable resources for higher value tasks than posting cash for eight hours each day.

Each time one of your employees has to view or touch a payment, it costs you money.

That's why we designed ETran with the ability to seamlessly integrate with any back-office system in either batch or real-time to streamline and automate the cash application process.
