SIMPLIFIED REMITTANCE MANAGEMENT
POWERED BY AI TECHNOLOGY
Inefficient remittance management not only drains your AR team’s time and labor, it has a direct impact on company revenue. That’s why Esker’s digital solution, powered by AI technologies, eliminates these costly bottlenecks through:
- Email triage — extracting & routing remittances to the Cash Application software
- Intelligent data extraction — extracting remittance advice information (e.g., header data, invoice, credit lines, etc.)
- Machine learning & teaching — extracting data from remittances & significantly speeding up cash allocation
MATCHING MADE EASY
No remittance included? Not a problem. Esker Cash Application software comes equipped with powerful AI technology that makes it easy to auto-allocate payments without remittances — freeing up time for your team and cashflow to your business.
HOW IT WORKS
Esker’s AI Engine captures data from payment files and accurately extracts the necessary information (e.g., invoice number, customer name, PO, etc.). The solution analyzes data in real time to always look for the best possible match; if several are possible, suggestions are provided to the user and can also create business rules to automate specific allocations or exceptions. Lastly, Esker’s solution also supports rapid reconciliation of payments with your ERP via native integrations or by extracting an output allocation file.
HANDLE EXCEPTIONS & SHORT PAYMENTS WITHOUT HASSLE
The road to rapid cash allocation can be a bumpy one due to obstacles like short payments, overpayments, discounts, claims, and more. Esker’s solution paves the way for an overall smoother, simpler, and smarter experience via our powerful AI technology and configurable rules to automate all types of exceptions.
SEE IT ALL, DO IT ALL FROM ONE INTERFACE
Even if user validation is necessary in the event of multiple allocations or complex exceptions, Esker ensures it has little to no impact on the speed of your process — enabling your team to access information and take action from a single interface. This can include viewing:
- Extracted payment information & check/remittance image
- Help messages & allocation suggestions via digital assistance
- Open items details (e.g., invoices, claims, credits, etc.) via a direct link to customer accounts & tooltips
