COLLECTING & DEPOSITING FUNDS
To operate a business, you need cash. There are many services available that help speed up access to cash, simplify reconciliation, and reduce the risk of fraud.
By collecting electronically, you can control the timing of your receivables and streamline reconciliation. ACH debit can be used to collect from customers, or concentrate cash from other accounts.
Remote Deposit Capture
You have better things to do than make constant trips to your bank. Our Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) service enables you to scan checks for deposit from your desk eliminating the need for deposit slips and the expense of toner to copy checks. Check deposit reports (including images) can be produced and stored electronically.
We will collect your mailed receivables from an assigned P.O. Box, deposit your checks, and provide online images of all checks and invoices. This provides additional controls while freeing up considerable administrative time.
Credit and debit processing – accept credit and debit cards on the spot, over the phone or via the web.
When the availability of funds are crucial, you can receive incoming domestic or international wires into your account. Incoming wire notifications can be established on FirstBank’s Commercial Online Banking system or by email.
DISBURSING FUNDS & PAYMENTS
Control how and when cash moves out of your company’s business banking accounts, manage your accounts and time your payments.
Reduce transaction costs and the risk of fraud with electronic payments. By paying electronically you also reduce the expense of postage, stationary, and toner. ACH eliminates the headache of stop payments, reissues, and the administrative time to research missing checks.
Reconciliation is also easier since you control the disbursement of funds. Without your account number exposed, direct deposit, vendor payments, and taxes originated electronically pose a smaller risk of fraud.
The ability to earn cash rebates, increase controls, and extend payables are just a few reasons why the Commercial Card is a great tool in managing your cash flow.
Originate one-time or recurring domestic or international wire transfers via FirstBank’s Commercial Online Banking. Keep better internal controls with the ability to designate approval chains.
Manage your cash balances to maximize earning potential and minimize costs.
