For Long Term Savings Move Beyond the Paper Trail: This Week in the Back Office


Small and midsize businesses have been hesitantly transitioning to electronic payment methods. But according to a recent whitepaper by Sage, adopting electronic payments is a simple, cost-effective strategy in the long term for B2B companies. Below are a few myths busted in the white paper:

Myth: Electronic payment systems are difficult to implement.
Reality: With the emergence of cloud and other technology platforms, adoption is easy — and it allows for reconciliation with accounting and ERP software. That can save time and money.

Myth: Using electronic payments is less secure than paper methods.
Reality: The Association for Financial Professionals found that, “87 percent of organizations affected by payments fraud reported checks were the targeted payment instruction.”

Myth: Adopting electronic payments will add complexity and, ultimately, hinder business.
Reality: The availability of electronic payments may actually encourage business. “57 percent of buyers said they would boost ordering frequency with a given supplier if that supplier accepted credit cards,” according to the report.
