eStatements: Our Cash Management program includes eStatements, electronic bank statements that are fast, simple and good for the environment!
Bill Pay: Make payments to anyone at anytime in a way that is proven to be safer than sending checks in the mail! The online bill pay system allows users to set-up automatic payments that are easily organized, and editable. The bill pay allows users to sort bills into groups that you can file under any name (ex. credit card, office supplies, automotive), link invoices to payments, and add multiple user levels.
When looking at the bill pay dashboard, you’re shown a current status of your account along with bill reminders, pending payments, and recent payments. Making a payment is as easy entering in the biller name, amount your paying and, pay date. Most bills are received the next business day. Payments that are pending can also be updated or changed.
