This achievement underscores Fintech’s unwavering commitment to streamlining accounts payable and accounts receivable processes for B2B alcohol transactions.

Fintech’s extensive network spans over 225,000 businesses involved in alcohol sales, linking them with more than 5,000 distributors and self-distributing suppliers nationwide. Processing an impressive weekly average of over 950,000 invoices, totaling $50 billion in annual alcohol purchases, Fintech has firmly positioned itself as the premier platform for alcohol purchases within the industry.

With PaymentSource, Fintech empowers businesses to automate both cash-on-delivery and term payments for alcohol deliveries, supporting compliance with state regulations governing alcohol purchases.

While renowned for its accounts payable and receivable benefits, PaymentSource also incorporates automation technology for various manual processes involved in alcohol business management. Once an invoice is received and automatically paid, the Fintech integration seamlessly delivers error-free, GL-coded invoice data directly into the client’s back-office or accounting system. Additionally, all invoices are securely stored within the Fintech client portal, which offers a consolidated view of payment activity and credit request functionality. Moreover, the portal provides actionable reporting tools such as the Spend Overview Report, Distributor Analysis Report, and Cost Variance Report. These tools enable clients to monitor changes in expected product costs and identify potential influences affecting margin erosion, allowing prompt resolution of issues impacting desired results.

For over three decades, Fintech has been a trusted partner for alcohol businesses of all sizes. With a commitment to optimize alcohol business management, Fintech continually expands its suite of solutions, incorporating scan-based trading, customer sales management, and more.
