Prior to the Cashbook implementation, Alamo Group were struggling with a number of issues:
Alamo Group use JDE as their ERP system, due to Data Protection issues, Cashbook did not have full access to JDE to update the completed automated results. This presented a challenge. Prior to the Cashbook implementation, Alamo followed the process below, which required a lot of time and resources within the group:
Cashbook could automatically identify Alamo’s customers from the bank data/image, and match them directly with their specific invoices. Cashbook automated the Lockbox process for Alamo, which resulted in them being able to import check receipts, identify customers and to open invoices by using image views.
Added functionality allowed users to create templates over remittance images and link these to actual customers. Once a template was created, Cashbook stored this information and used it the next time that customer paid. The initial identification of these customers,using relationships maintained in Cashbook, assisted further automation of the Lockbox imports.
