REPAY Adds Accounts Payable Automation to Acumatica

REPAY | July 15, 2021

Repay Holdings Corporation, a leading provider of vertically-integrated payment solutions, announced today the integration of its Vendor Payments Automation solution into Acumatica, a leading cloud ERP company, allowing small and midsize businesses to streamline accounts payable processes, optimise internal workflows, and securely pay vendors and suppliers.

By extending REPAY's connection to include vendor payments automation, Acumatica users will have access to a full vendor enablement solution that includes AR and AP payment automation capabilities. Businesses may pay suppliers more efficiently and transparently by simplifying outbound payments, saving time and increasing their bottom lines. Furthermore, by configuring different restrictions and removing the need to send sensitive credit card or bank account information to hundreds of suppliers, organisations employing the integration may considerably minimise their exposure to fraud threats.

“By adding accounts payable solutions to our current connection with Acumatica, we are continuing our commitment to making transactions easier for our clients while lowering costs and boosting revenue,” said Darin Horrocks, SVP, B2B, REPAY. “We are excited to continue our partnership with the Acumatica team as a sponsor of their annual Acumatica Summit.”

The Vendor Payments Automation solution in Acumatica allows for the development and approval of payment groups and invoicing, as well as automatic reconciliation and bespoke reporting.

REPAY is a premier sponsor of Acumatica Summit 2021 and will demonstrate its integrated AR and AP automation solutions from July 18-23, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
