Your accounting and finance team shoulders a lot of responsibility. Banking processes can take up a lot of time if they’re done manually. Those processes, which can include duplicate data entry, can lead to expensive mistakes. If you’re using small business accounting software and your organisation’s complex banking functions aren’t automated, you’re liking dealing with some of these common challenges:

  • Duplication of data entry
  • Slow electronic payments
  • Manual updating and uploading of data needed for bank statements and bank payments
  • Payment files not matching the format and structure required by the bank
  • Difficulty with tax and VAT compliance 
  • Manual import of account statements 
  • Keying in cash book transactions
  • Reconciliations require a lot of manual effort
  • Month-end process takes forever 
  • Security risks when employees have access to bank accounts

Small Changes, Big Impact: Steps to Banking Integration and Automation

You’ve probably heard the term digital transformation - but you might be wondering what it means, and even more so, what does it mean for your business. Think about it like this: You are likely overwhelmed with decisions more than ever - and looking at new ways to do business to bounce back from a changing world. That can seem like too big an obstacle to take on – but it doesn't have to be that way. 

Many of our clients have started with just one single step – making the dive into digital transformation a little less complicated. They didn't try to solve all their problems in a day. They just took one step forward asking themselves - what can I automate or integrate to make this one business area run better? Making even one small change to your technology can have a big impact in your business.  For example, digital transformation could mean a solution to automate your invoicing process. Or maybe a solution to help process your electronic payments faster. It’s simply embracing technology to help run your business better.
