Learn how Fintech’s electronic alcohol invoice payment solution helps distributors increase safety and reduce operational costs.

We are in an age where technology leads automation and efficiency in every aspect of our lives. In our personal lives we have Roombas roaming our homes, our watches sending texts on our behalf, and so many Zoom celebrations it feels like we’re in Star Trek. The same advances have changed customer expectations and become a necessary part of running a successful business. More recently, businesses have worked to utilize technology not only behind the scenes but with their customers directly. As an alcohol distributor, what technology could you be leveraging to maintain your competitive edge and enhance your overall customer service experience with your retailers?  

Of course, as distributors, the mind goes immediately to the ordering process. It’s the first step taken when selling your product and while online ordering solutions have grown exponentially over the last six months, it’s not the only interaction you have with your customers…could you be doing more?  

Touchless delivery processes are here to stay but setting up and operating your own ACH program comes with added liability and overhead. If electronic payments are the new expectation, isn’t there an easier way to offer them? Enter: Distributor Autopay. Distributor Autopay is Fintech’s solution to the increased demand for contactless interactions, but it goes far beyond that. What are the true benefits of introducing a distributor autopay program like this to your business?
