Information Reporting Services

When your business reaches an enterprise level, having the right information at the right time and place becomes increasingly important. That’s why Anchor Bank offers Information Reporting Services to each of its commercial customers, giving you all the information you need to determine your cash position, monitor cash flow, and identify opportunities for investment or debt repayment.

EDI – Electronic Data Interchange

Anchor Bank’s Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) service streamlines your accounting and minimizes cash receivable and payable functions by passing invoice and payment data through our Automated Clearing House (ACH) banking network. With EDI, you can offer your trading partners the option of sending electronic payments directly from their checking account, thereby replacing more time-consuming, traditional paper-based check and invoice payment processes.

HOW IT WORKS FOR YOU
Any payments received through the ACH network are processed and credited to your account. The information accompanying payments, such as invoice number and payer, is translated and delivered to you in a readable format. Anchor offers two EDI solutions to meet your needs.

Digital Check Images

Digital Check Images is a simple, organized check storage and retrieval system designed to give you maximum accessibility to your company's check files. Using a personal computer and CD-ROM drive you can quickly and easily access, sort and search through your check or deposit slip images to eliminate the hassle of paper-based storage and retrieval.

How it works for you
Front and back check images are captured each day and stored until month-end when a CD-ROM is produced and shipped to you containing all your disbursement activity data and images. To find a check image, simply search by dollar amount, check number, or date paid. Once the item is located, the system identifies the CD that houses the specific image for easy manipulation rotation, zooming in and out, and enhancement of the brightness and contrast.

Key benefits to your business

  • Cost effective – Receiving check images reduces the physical storage space needed for paper checks as well as the costs associated with storage and research.
  • Secure – The images are sorted on one-write CD-ROMs that cannot be altered. By controlling access to the CD-ROMs, you control the number of users that can view the images.
  • Efficient – High-quality digitized images are clearer than microfilm or faxed images. Paid check images can be accessed quickly and pasted into a correspondence letter, thus allowing quick resolution to payment disputes.
