Rockland Trust has partnered with our business customers to understand their obstacles and work toward identifying banking solutions that can offer a resolution. We then asked our banking experts to share some insight regarding what services might be of most use to business owners right now, as well as in the future. Below are five key banking services to consider:
1. Business Invoicing (Powered by Autobooks)
In today’s on-the-go world, disjointed invoicing and payments are a pain for businesses. Business Invoicing is designed to help businesses simplify digital billing to and payments from customers. Integrated with Rockland Trust business checking accounts and accessible through online banking, you can create customized invoices, send late payment reminders and keep payments organized in one central location.
2. Merchant Service Solutions
Contactless payment methods have become more common throughout this pandemic. As customers and employees look for ways to avoid contact at the point of sale, businesses may need to understand the options to make that possible. Rockland Trust partners with Elavon to provide businesses with safe, secure contactless payment services.
3. Corporate Credit Cards
Much like personal credit cards, corporate or business credit cards can offer additional financial flexibility that can be invaluable in times like these. For example, it assists business cash flow by allowing 30 days for payment instead of immediate fund withdrawal. Because your financial needs are not identical to other businesses, there are many different credit card options — in terms of perks, rewards, fees and more — available to meet your specific requirements.
4. Automated Clearing House (ACH) Origination
Process payments and receivables electronically with ACH origination, allowing you to accelerate your financial cycle. In addition, this service can bring operational efficiencies, reduce administrative or other operating costs and improve cash flow.
5. Remote Deposit Options
Conveniently deposit checks from your office. You can deposit a high volume of checks using a remote check scanner. This means you can multitask in your office while still keeping your financial operations moving.
While a remote check scanner offers convenience, it may not make sense for your business depending on the number of checks you process. You may be able to utilize mobile deposit for the time being, or other deposit solutions. Consult a banker to find a solution that best meets your needs.
