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.

We're back from Money20/20 Europe and here's our synopsis:

 

 

>> The event grew so much, it is out of control. The circus theme definitely helps support this feeling. The setup is amazing. And if you carefully navigate through the entire agenda, there actually are some interesting topics and speakers in between all the product ads.

 

You cannot be customer centric without having the correct underlying infrastructure.

 

>> Open banking was brought into discussion on all panels. Not surprising, with PSD2 knocking on our doors.

 

>> When getting started with AI, the most useful approach is to look at some use cases. CoBot by Carnegie Mellon was explained in a very pragmatic way and showed how robots and computers need to co-exist with humans in order to achieve better productivity and efficiency.

 

>> Real issues banks face. Like getting the data in the right geography and system to be able to make use of it; residence, cross-border, privacy regulations make it very hard. Keeping lending as core business.

 

>> A series of buzzwords were thrown down the bin: blockchain, we are moving to a cashless society, cards are the future, banks are customer centric.

 

>> Don't become somebody's PR pet – Leda Glyptis' advice for Fintechs to prevent from becoming money blind and accepting non-recurrent deals coming from the wrong budget. In short, make sure what you sell is needed and it’s not a one-time purchase. Make the right partnerships that fit who you are and what you want to achieve.

 

GDPR is a complete waste of money and completely pointless.

 

>> Self Sovereign Identity dilemma: should one own his own data or should he trust someone or something else?
