Positive Pay and ACH Positive Pay

Whether you or other employees pay by check or electronically with ACH, our Positive Pay service can be used to enhance the internal security measures you take to ensure that only authorized payments are made from your account. Often used in conjunction with our Account Reconciliation and Controlled Disbursement services, Positive Pay safeguards your check and ACH payments from the risk of cybercrime, identity theft, and fraudulent check-writing.

Controlled Disbursement

If your business has a high payment volume, it’s important to keep enough funds in your check disbursement account to cover your daily check debits. Improve your cash forecasting practices and expedite paper disbursements with our controlled disbursement services. By alerting you each morning to the total dollar amount of check payments scheduled to clear that evening, we make it easy to efficiently manage your cash flow by funding the account with the exact amount needed each day.

Zero Balance Account Services

Companies with multiple locations, divisions, or accounting functions can consolidate balances for easy treasury management while maintaining a clear audit trail through a Zero Balance Account (ZBA). A unique Zero Balance Account is maintained for each location, division, or accounting function. Then all Zero Balance Accounts in the system are "linked" to the master account, with up to a three-tier account structure.

Zero Balance Accounts are automatically funded by the master account on an as-needed basis. Likewise, deposits into Zero Balance Accounts are automatically transferred to the master account. The ZBA approach gives your business centralized control over funds management, while individual divisions or locations maintain decentralized payment authority. Less time is needed to monitor accounts, and idle balances are concentrated to provide maximum benefit. And you can earn income or reduce existing debt by leveraging automated sweep services.
