Key Benefits of ACH Origination Services for Small Businesses

What is ACH Origination?

You might have heard of ACH before but didn’t really know what it meant. ACH stands for Automatic Clearing House and ACH origination allows businesses to have funds electronically transmitted for things like payroll and bill payments within the United States. Some of the common terms used when referencing different ACH services include:

  • Direct deposit
  • Bill payment
  • Account transfers
  • B2B payments
  • Cash management

Your business can use all the above to withdraw or deposit funds. According to Nacha, 93% of Americans receive their pay through the ACH Network. ACH also allows businesses to withdraw funds from accounts for subscription-based purchases.

ACH payments can be processed in a few hours on the same business day, scheduled for the following day or up to two days in advance.

Think of all of these ACH services as a railyard. There are a lot of different trains going down many different tracks, like the different types of ACH transactions that are occurring. All the withdrawals and deposits come from the same place, the Federal Reserve, at rapid speed and electronically, helping businesses make their payments faster.

Benefits of ACH

Now that you know what ACH Origination is and that it can be used to improve your business finances, let’s talk about the benefits.

  • Cost Saving
    • Reduce your administrative and other operating costs by going digital.
  • Convenience
    • ACH allows your business to quickly and electronically provide payroll and balance books.
  • Reoccurring Billing
    • Business customers with subscription-based bills don’t have to remember to pay their bills—bills are paid on time, and you don’t have to follow up with your customers about late payments.
  • Security
    • Using ACH services eliminates the need for paper checks to move around and get lost in the mail and protects the businesses' side for authentication.
  • The Ability to use the Money Right Away
    • What’s a better benefit than you and your employees being able to use money as soon as possible?

Running a business can be challenging but managing your payments via ACH doesn’t have to be. Make sure you’re making the best use of your time and getting the best security you can using ACH Origination.

Be the conductor of funds traveling in and out of your accounts.

Don’t compromise your business’s security or your valuable downtime dealing with unsecured and paper payments.
