Lock Box Service
Simplify the collection and processing of payments. We'll collect your customers' payments from the lock box and deposit the money directly into your account. This simple and secure option reduces your trips to the bank, and improves the collection of checks while reducing the handling, time and expense within your company. All payment support records are forwarded to the company for documentation purposes.
Zero Balance Accounts (ZBA)
This self-zeroing account makes it easy to keep track of specific sub-accounts, such as petty cash. The ZBA account can work as a collection or dispersing account, transferring and extracting funds into your main account at the end of the day and always bringing the account back to zero. You can also set up automatic transfers into or from a master account. The ZBA account benefits your company through control and ease of accounting.
Sweep Accounts (Target Balance)
You set the parameters, and the sweep account automatically distributes funds between deposit, investment, and/or loan accounts. It will allocate your funds in the most profitable manner for your business, without daily intervention. Sweep accounts are available as two- or three-way sweeps to ensure your business' resources are where you need them, when you need them. You may monitor all sweep activity through the Online Cash Manager.
