TransCentra adds imaging functionality for corporate remote lockboxes

12 August 2014  |  1923 views  |  0 Source: TransCentra

TransCentra, a leading provider of billing and payment software and services, has enhanced its private label remote lockbox offering, which allows the corporate customers of TransCentra's private label bank clients to scan checks and accompanying documents remotely as an alternative to either mailing them to the lockbox site or processing them through a stand-alone remote deposit capture application.

In addition to checks, corporate customers can also remotely scan all accompanying materials such as invoices, coupons, loan documents, applications and envelopes. All scanned items are processed, data captured, archived and, for clients with a lockbox on the TransCentra private label platform, automatically consolidated with mailed payments sent directly to the lockbox for processing and accounts receivable file reporting purposes.

"For many treasury management banks, remote deposit capture is a separate product from lockbox, even though many of the items that pass through these two products are destined for the same place – checks are deposited and corporate clients' receivables systems are updated to reflect the payment," said Paul Diegelman, senior vice president at TransCentra. "Checks captured remotely often have important accompanying documents that are used in the receivables posting or archiving process such as a loan document or homeowner's association coupon. By further enhancing our remote lockbox service, we help our private label bank clients eliminate the management of multiple products while delivering consolidated processing, reporting and receivables posting functionality to their corporate customers whether they use a traditional lockbox or not."

TransCentra's private label remote lockbox solution enables users to intuitively step through the scanning process and review captured items. Users receive alerts for any issues or unreleased batches that require attention, and enhanced tracking and search capabilities allow them to quickly access specific transactions as needed.

"Treasury Strategies' clients are increasingly focused on customer experience as a way to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. Blending traditional RDC and lockbox can remove excess friction within payments for both banks and corporates. Given the prevalence of distributed capture technology, we see this as a very beneficial evolution," sasaid Jim Poteet, principal with Treasury Strategies, Inc.

Extending lockbox functionality to the desktop adds convenience and efficiency to payment processing for any company that processes wholesale and retail payments, including specialty verticals such as healthcare organizations, homeowners associations and property management companies. The service is available to banks of all sizes as a complement to lockbox, or as a replacement for an existing legacy remote deposit capture application.
