Live Webinar on March 10: A to Z of Secure Corporate Treasury Payments

03-03-2022 | treasuryXL | Aico | LinkedIn |


Ensuring manual payments are secure is a common concern for treasury, internal controls teams, and accounts payable process owners. While for some companies, manual payments cases are few and far between, others perform regularly and in large amounts and thus are at high risk of mishandling funds. In this webinar we will present:

  • Some of the most common use cases for manual payments.
  • Fraud risks associated with manual payments.
  • End-to-end software solution to safeguard manual payment process.

What are manual payments?

Manual payments are often required for one-time vendors, where they are not set up in your ERP system, but a payment needs to be made. Whilst these tend to be infrequent in nature, the process still needs to be carefully managed to ensure internal controls are applied, and the risk of errors or even fraud is minimised.

The Aico solution provides a Manual Payments module to fully support this process, and in this Webinar, we will show you:

  • A configurable template to raise the request with defined workflows to be followed.
  • The ability to validate and approve the payment request, and add all relevant supporting evidence.
  • The ability to automatically create the appropriate PAIN file which can be sent to the bank for processing.
  • Automation to create and post the appropriate journal entries to your ERP system following successful payment.
