How to Take Control of Your Disbursements

August 17, 2021

Are you in control of your disbursements, or are they controlling you?

When disbursements to suppliers and individuals aren’t under control, payments can bog down your operations, strain your cash flow, and put your business at risk of costly fraud and compliance issues.

Businesses of all sizes need a disbursements solution that gives them better control.

  • Control over payment type and payment rails
  • Control over the originating bank account
  • Control over payment timing
  • Control over the information that accompanies payments
  • Control over how suppliers are onboarded

Choosing between the many disbursements solutions on the market is challenging. And the wrong disbursements solution will cost you and could jeopardize supplier and customer relationships.

What businesses need is a disbursements solution that makes it easy to disburse single or mass payments of any type, using any payment rail, instantly or scheduled for later. The platform also should be capable of integrating seamlessly with any legacy accounting software or ERP so users can easily manage disbursements directly from the familiar screens of their company’s legacy systems. It also should include built-in mobile tools for onboarding suppliers onto your open payment network.
