Automate Deposits/Reconcile Faster

When you use our payment services, we can schedule a daily email to your financial team in an Excel file format showing line item details of your STO batch header deposit and/or daily transactions each morning (or on a schedule that fits your needs).

We can customize the file in the format that’s compatible with your accounting software. Files can be sent to one person or a group email so multiple people receive the information. A growing number of state and local financial officers are taking advantage of customized reports. The report files are easy to set up, convenient to use and a big timesaver, especially if you process many transactions. Contact us to get you set up.
