Centralizing Payment Solutions With Fintech’s PaymentSource

Fintech acts as the central hub for all alcohol invoice payments, consolidating data and transactions into one accessible platform. This centralized approach simplifies the task of managing multiple payments and invoices for Front Burner’s accounting professionals. Its flagship PaymentSource® solution automatically pays alcohol invoices, eliminating the need for cash, checks, money orders, or manual ACH payments. Line-item invoice data is stored for Front Burner to access and monitor bank activity information, view invoice details, and reconcile invoice discrepancies faster.

Enhanced Insights and Cost Management

One of the most significant advantages is the access to detailed invoice data insights provided by Fintech. Front Burner can leverage this information to identify cost variances, pinpoint areas of overspending, and gain a comprehensive overview of financial operations. These insights empower them to make informed decisions to optimize spending and improve financial health.

Seamlessly Integrated Data Transmission

The seamless transmission of alcohol invoice data directly into Fintech is a game-changer for Front Burner. This integration enables easy review and reconciliation of invoices from the past 18 months. This rapid access to historical data significantly expedites the accounting and auditing processes.
