Our clients have saved hundreds of man-hours spent on intensive manual processes. At one of our clients, we handle 85% of receipts in respect of one of the world’s largest sales ledgers through automatic straight through processing.
VanguARd™ provides the ability to trace and identify cash received into different bank accounts. VanguARd™ validates if the correct deductions have been applied for early settlement, and acknowledgements are automatically generated and sent to customers.
Our clients have the ability to instantly detect deductions and unfulfilled promises to pay, therefore refocusing efforts away from manual post processing of unmatched items. Chasers are automatically sent for unpaid older items, and a stop is put on accounts if any pre-set limits are breached.
Unallocated cash reduces, and the closure of ledgers at month end becomes a faster and more reliable process. Currencies are translated and any FX differences are posted directly to the corresponding ledger accounts.
As sales volumes increase, VanguARd™ mitigates against customers being contacted when they have already been paid, which in turn helps to sustain good customer relations and reputation.
