ACH (automated clearinghouse) is a method of electronically transferring funds. With accounts payable management software, the software provider may offer ACH but often will work more like an intermediary clearinghouse--you transfer funds to them, they transfer payment to your vendor.
With an Accounts Payable Automation solution like Fidesic, an ACH file is generated as your invoices are approved and automatically sent to your bank directly over SFTP. The bank then processes the ACH as if the client manually uploaded it, and it is something that nearly all modern banks support.
Fidesic offers different options for your vendors to submit invoices:
1. Vendors can submit invoices directly to our data capture system using an AP dropbox email address.
2. Vendors can utilize our vendor portal for direct submission of invoices.
