Why You Need to Leverage Cash Application Process Automation

Cash application is a highly manual, repetitive, time-consuming process. One that is rife with inefficiencies, audit and compliance issues and increasing bank costs. Many organisations accept the implications of manual cash application as a “necessary evil”. However, organisations who avoid utilising cash application automation software are hurting their bottom line. In doing so, organisations are avoiding a key opportunity to streamline business operations.

There are 3 indisputable reasons why organisations dealing with a high volume of transactions need to leverage cash application process automation.



If cash payments are not posted promptly, inefficiencies can then be created in your organisation’s credit, collections, and deductions management processes. Cash application automation software speeds up processes significantly. It selects, reads, auto-matches, transmits, posts and stores data automatically for your team.

With cash application automation software, you can apply cash the same day the funds hit your bank. Bank accounts can therefore be reconciled on a much more frequent basis, ensuring closer cash control and reducing month end pressure.

Not only that, you can automate and re-allocate resources to higher value activities such as DSO reduction and deduction resolutions. Why spend so many hours manually processing high volume, repetitive cash application transactions? Cash application process automation software ensures much more efficient use of staff hours.
