Among the many new updates we have added a new Bank Statement Screen where your automated import of bank statement files will check for missing statements, duplicate statements, and more. We have also added significant new advanced sub ledger creation rules and advanced settlement features that allow for an even higher degree of matching of transactions and reconciliation of bank accounts.
Enjoy immediate return on your investment with company-wide automation, easily handling high volume transactions and any number of bank accounts.
