If you are still keystroking payments one at a time, you are wasting an enormous amount of time. And, no doubt, hating every minute of it.
Diversified Billing leverages today’s technologies to take the drudgery out of payment processing, dramatically speed the process and completely eliminate most error opportunities.
Here are three methods to get the work done more quickly, with greater accuracy, and maybe even have a little fun the process.
Don’t Keystroke It. Import It.
The rule here is simple: If payment information is available in an electronic file, don’t keystroke it. Import it. Many payment types are available in an electronic file format. You just have to encourage your customers to use them.
For example, all credit/debit card payments made on the Diversified Billing Customer Portal are delivered to you in an electronic file. Encourage your customers to use this payment method. So you can import the file!
All ACH debit authorizations are delivered to you in an electronic file. Encourage your customers to use this payment method. So you can import the file!
All payments made through Diversified Billing’s pay-by-phone service are delivered to you in an electronic file. Encourage your customers to use this payment method. So you can import the file!
Tame Those Nasty Bank Checks (and Get Paid Days Sooner)
Bank checks! They make it so convenient for your customers to pay their utility bills with just a few mouse clicks. But inaccurate account numbers and confusing address information make you want to pull your hair out. And they spend days in the mail.
There is a solution. The Diversified Billing Bank Check Processing service stops bank checks in their tracks. Here is how it works:
You authorize your bank payments to be delivered in electronic form to our consolidator instead of by check to you. Our consolidator deposits funds directly into your account on the same day that your check would have gone into the mail. So you get your money days sooner.
You spot a bad account number and, rather than trying to get the customer to correct it, you notify our consolidator. Our consolidator makes the correction, so all future payment from this custorm bear the correct account number.
And guess what? You receive an electronic payment file each day — just like the big boys. So you can import the file!
Don’t Keystroke Personal Checks, Scan Them!
Some folks just can’t get comfortable with electronic payments. They still want to write a paper check to pay their utility bill. Well, Diverisified Billing has a solution so you don’t have to keystroke those payments.
We utilize our bar-coded bill stubs and an inexpensive check scanner to allow you to scan both stub and check to create your own electronic file.
By now you know the next step. Import the file!
Eliminate Trips to the Bank with Check 21
A secondary advantage of scanning your personal checks is that you can now submit your daily deposits in electronic form rather than running to the bank on the way home every afternoon.
The Diversified Billing system captures an image of the front and back of each check and prepares a Check 21 transmittal file that you can submit to the bank as your deposit.
Speed Your Cash Processing with an Automated Assist
Diversified Billing even makes processing cash transactions faster and easier. You enter the account number, date and amount of the payment. The system automatically applies the payment according to the rules you have established.
