positive pay, customer activity reporting, NOC Manager, Standard Entry Class (SEC) code monitoring, debit return analysis and more. These modules are designed to create a strong return on your investment by growing your financial institution’s revenue, driving customer retention and mitigating risk. Streamlined Origination and Processing ACH Manager simplifies transfer origination by offering templates for virtually all transfer types, including vendor and tax payments, and consumer debit and credits. Information about the receiving organization can be automatically prefilled from the Federal Reserve’s ACH member list. Additionally, the generated templates – including those used for multiple transfers, such as recurring payroll payments – can be saved for future use.
Once submitted, transfers are sent through an automated workflow, which validates each file, checks for duplicate items, runs risk management controls, withholds designated prefunding amounts and provides email notification of rejected and approved transfers. Customers can log in to their online account to edit transactions pending approval, and view status updates and extended ACH transaction history. Single and multiple transactions, or an entire batch, can be reversed with a single click. Reversal amounts can be split among multiple accounts on which the account holder is an owner or signer. Reversals are then processed to all affected accounts. ACH Manager also permits transactions to be placed on hold. While on-hold transactions are omitted from processing, the transaction information is saved. These transactions are also excluded from the debit and credit totals, helping customers improve record and account monitoring. If a template transfer is put on hold, the review process is automatically initiated, ensuring a notification email is sent to the authorized administrator to approve the hold.
Efficient Risk Management Controls Protect Against Fraud You can set limits governing the Standard Entry Class (SEC) type, number and dollar value of transactions initiated by your staff and customers. Limits can be established for single transactions or per batch file, or for a designated length of time. After a limit has been met, additional transfers are rejected and returned to the originator. Transfer review thresholds provide another method for monitoring the type, dollar amount and number of transfers originated. After the threshold has been met, additional submitted transfers are set to a pending approval status, and email notification is sent to the originator. The Evolution Continues While ACH has been the workhorse of electronic payment processing in the U.S. for many years, it is still evolving. As the latest transaction types emerge, such as person-to-person payments, ACH has assumed a new role as the principal carrier of those transactions and continues to be a mainstay of payment processing for the financial industry.
The ACH Pass-Thru transfer type provides advanced functionality for importing and processing NACHA-formatted ACH files. Selecting this transfer type enables you to choose specific batches within an ACH file to process immediately, as well as which ones to review or save for processing at a later time.
