FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT AUTO CASH APPLICATIONS
How do you automate the cash application process?
The cash application process is the final step in the Accounts Receivable cycle. It ensures that all customer payments are properly applied to the correct invoices. This can be done manually by a company's accounting department – with employees looking at each payment and applying it to the corresponding invoice – or automatically using software designed for this purpose. With auto cash application, the payments are matched up to the invoices electronically, eliminating the need for manual processing. This not only saves time, but also reduces the chance of human error. Esker’s Accounts Receivable software offers a smart way to increase efficiency and boost your business’ financial management.
