AP Automation Software: Developed a SaaS-based solution that automates and digitizes the collection, review, approval and payment of invoices for buyers. The multichannel data reception mechanism provides unique, vertical-oriented interface software tools that optimize access point workflows for customers. Digitally capture invoices from suppliers and apply certain buyer business rules to allow them to start invoice processing, extract and use transaction data from the invoice to improve and customize approval workflows and manage the entire AP process through invoice payment.
AvidPay Network: A two-way payment network connects buyers with their suppliers, allowing them to pay bills on behalf of the buyer and in accordance with the supplier's business rules, payment preferences and money transfer data. The company supports various payment methods depending on the supplier's preferences, including a virtual commercial card or VCC, an extended ACH (our AvidPay Direct) and a physical receipt, while providing detailed data on money transfers to simplify the reconciliation process.
Cash Flow Manager: The company provides cash management solutions to a network of suppliers, including tools that provide a complete presentation of invoices and an accelerator function (our Invoice Accelerator). These additional features, as well as others in the product, allow the company to both monetize and increase engagement in two-way payment networks.
