GreatAmerica Announces Automatic Cash Posting Integration with e-automate & OMD
Monday, November 23, 2015
GreatAmerica Financial Services Corp. and ECi Software Solutions have announced the completion of their automated cash posting functionality that will allow GreatAmerica and ECi capabilities to come full cycle. This new integration completes the accounts receivable process by connecting the current usage billing integration. The advancement eliminates manual work, helps reduce errors and speeds up the remittance process for dealers in the office imaging industry using ECi's e-automate and OMD enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
"The GreatAmerica/ECi ESN [equipment supply network] cash posting integration has shortened our remittance process from an hour every day to only five minutes," said Scott Stahl, vice president of finance, ASI Business Solutions. "As a tech company, we value the technology and integration focus of GreatAmerica and ECi."
The newly automated accounts receivable process works in conjunction with the previous ECi and GreatAmerica usage billing integrations to help save hours on manually posting remittance reporting.
"So far, dealers are thrilled with this functionality due to its significant time savings, as well as the benefit of next-day remittance and posting for money that we collected on their behalf," said Jennie Fisher, senior vice president and general manager, Office Equipment Group, GreatAmerica Financial Services. "One of our strategic initiatives at GreatAmerica is helping our dealers be as efficient and effective as possible through our work on technology integrations, and this integration helps further that goal."
GreatAmerica customers using ECi's e-automate or OMD software can sign up for either the usage billing or automatic cash posting integration at no additional charge by contacting GreatAmerica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
