Sage expands partnership with Corporate Spending Innovations to deliver new Vendor Payments offering within Sage Intacct
ATLANTA, March 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sage (FTSE: SGE), the market leader in cloud business management solutions, and Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI), a leader in electronic B2B payment solutions, today announced an expanded relationship. The companies are working together to deliver new vendor payments capabilities natively within the Sage Intacct cloud financial management system – providing a seamless experience from bill to reconciliation for joint customers.
From processing automated clearing house (ACH) batches to printing and mailing checks, the accounts payable (AP) process is often time-consuming and costly. Finance teams end up jumping between multiple systems or getting bogged down in manual processes to deliver and reconcile vendor payments. With the new Sage Intacct Vendor Payments powered by CSI, businesses can streamline and automate their payments process. This solution brings together Sage Intacct’s best-in-class cloud financials and the trusted payments platform from Corporate Spending Innovations to deliver a seamless payments experience. The new offering enables customers to pay vendors quickly, speed up reconciliations, and offer more ways to pay – all while reducing payment transaction costs.
“With the sudden move to fully remote workforces for many businesses in 2020, CFOs became painfully aware that digitizing AP, especially payments, was an initiative that should have been implemented years ago,” said David Disque, President from Corporate Spending Innovations.
“We believe that more and more businesses will discover that payments automation is no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have. The integration of our B2B payments platform now fully embedded into Sage Intacct enables companies to embrace technology and innovation through a single user experience as the payments ecosystem evolves to meet the changing landscape of digital business,” according to Jason Kolbenheyer, Chief Product Officer from Corporate Spending Innovations.
“Most companies don’t realize just how much time and money gets wasted in their traditional AP workflows,” said Dan Miller, Sage’s SVP of Product for Sage Intacct. “Studies have shown it can cost companies $20 or more per check to pay vendors and more than 80% of an AP team’s time is spet on manual transactions and payment processing. Sage Intacct customers can now leverage the trusted payments platform from Corporate Spending Innovations as a seamless extension to their company’s AP team to streamline the AP process and save money on each vendor payment.”
There are several key benefits to the new Vendor Payments solution:
One system from invoice to payment
Faster reconciliations, less errors
More ways to pay and save
Furthermore, with Corporate Spending Innovations as the engine behind Vendor Payments, their trusted payments platform becomes a seamless extension of your AP team. Your payments are backed by the security program from Corporate Spending Innovations, which includes their status as a Mastercard and Visa certified processor, multiple compliance certifications (including PCI DSS Level 1 and SOC 2), and encryption for data-in-transit and data-at-rest.
