Corporate Account Reconciliation at Your Fingertips

 

 

 

Our corporate treasury solution – FinOps Suite* – is based on FinTPc, one of the dear cousins of the FinTP product that banks use to achieve straight through processing and much more.

 

One of the things to love about it is the otherwise underrated account reconciliation... Reconciliation is a critical control for your business and its automation significantly increases your overall efficiency.

 

Ten months into our FinOps Suite project, it’s high time you took a look at one of the reconciliation flows that FinTPc offers, the one that matches payments with debit transactions from bank statements.

 

 

FinTPc Reconciliation Steps (Automatic / Manual)


  1. FinTPc fetches payment files from the corporate’s core applications (Human Resources, Accounting, etc.)
  2. Groups of payments are authorized by users in order to send them to the banks.
  3. FinTPc fetches statements from each bank involved.
  4. According to the criteria previously defined in the application, the debit records from the fetched statements and the payments sent to banks are submitted for automatic reconciliation.
  5. If all defined criteria are matched, the transactions involved are automatically matched.
  6. If only a subset of defined criteria is matched, the transactions involved are offered, in order to be manually confirmed or rejected by users.
  7. Also, the application allows users to select a transaction to be manually matched. In this case, after selecting the transaction, the user needs to select the pair of this transaction and manually match them.
  8. For monitoring and decision-making purposes, custom reconciliation reports are available for operations or business users.

 

In a very similar manner, FinTPc also reconciles issued invoices with credit transactions, as well as received invoices with debit transactions from bank statements.

 

Should any of the above ring a bell, feel free to get in touch with us for more info and learn how our services can benefit your business in more ways than one.

Building a Bridge Between Banks and SMEs

 

 

Our recent focus on companies is based on the idea of replicating the success of FinTP for banks at corporate treasury level, by means of FinOps Suite*.

 

 

We have been sharing with you bits about this EU-funded project ever since we started it in August last year, but there are always new perks to be put in the spotlight.

 

 

Please know that FinOps Suite can be used in a wider setup, serving not only treasuries of large retailers, but also their suppliers and these parties’ relationship with banks. How? FinOps Suite processes invoice based payments going to banks the retailer works with.

 

 

Suppliers often face liquidity issues, driven by long due dates of invoices. It would make sense for banks to offer automated short term financing for these invoices, especially as they are already approved for payment by the big customer of the supplier. FinOps Suite has access to this type of data and can therefore work seamlessly with the factoring solution of the bank, the internet banking application of the bank, the EDI the supplier and retailer work with, with the accounting systems of both the supplier and the retailer.

 

And this cumbersome and somewhat bureaucratic process can be then easily turned into seamless business operation. A fully automated process for the plumbing system and interconnections of these players. It also reduces the risk of financing for the banks. As factoring is an easier method to access than the usual credit line, it is also a riskier one. Oversight of invoices and payment details sets the premises for financial advisory, predictive cash flow analysis, reconciliation and the automation of these flows in between all parties involved - supplier, buyer, bank.
