ACOM Exclusive Sponsor of Electronic Payments Online Training from The Accounts Payable Network; Free Access Ends December 6, 2010
(PRLEAP.COM) LONG BEACH, California, November 23, 2010 — ACOM Solutions, Inc., developer and marketer of corporate payment solutions, has been named exclusive sponsor of The Accounts Payable Network’s (TAPN) 2010-2011 Electronic Payments video training webinar, it was announced jointly today by ACOM Senior Vice President James R. Scott and Susan M. Bova, Vice President Business Process Services, Training & Development, Financial Operations Networks.
The online webinar under ACOM’s sponsorship will run through December 2011 and if you are accredited with the IOMA/TAPN Accounts Payable Program, you will receive 1 CEU for watching this webinar. It is available for general viewing at no cost to TAPN members exclusively at www.TAPN.com
"We encourage accounts payable professionals to sign up for the training webinar early to learn how they can save their companies money by modernizing the payment process," Bova said. "It is not unusual for an electronic payments solution to pay for itself in only months through savings, depending on payment volume."
Noting that as high as 81% of all companies still operate in a paper payment environment and that others have attempted to automate payments but failed to generate the expected returns, the webinar asks and answers the question: How to turn this situation around? It further explores the details and cost trade-offs between expensive and personnel-intensive manual payment processes, the roles of payers, payees and banks in an automated electronic payment environment, and the types of solutions that are currently available.
"In a very thorough analysis, the TAPN presentation not only drills deeply into the problem but also provides concrete explanations and guidance in solving it," said ACOM Senior Vice President James R. Scott. "Much of this information coincides directly with the message that we have been communicating consistently with respect to the use of our payment solutions, which enables users to automate vendor enrollment for the receipt of ACH payments and electronic remittance delivery."
"Where TAPN figures show paper-based invoice/check payment costs ranging from a low of $3.00 to a high of $63.00, ACOM customers using EZPayManager are able to generate electronic payments for 25 cents or less while also maintaining a largely untended, secure process. The contrast is dramatic and we encourage any company still using paper checks to seriously consider the alternative."
ACOM is the developer and marketer of the EZPayManager payment management solution for Microsoft Windows and IBM System i/iSeries environments. The solution integrates ACH and MICR laser payment processing as well as a suite of supplementary modules and is currently in use by some 3,000 companies. A single payment run accomplishes both the paper and electronic disbursements.
