automation solutions with minimal IT involvement
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2016--
A major obstacle keeping organizations from choosing virtual card
payments over checks has been the effort and expense of integrating

payment systems1. U.S. Bank has a new solution that solves
for this business challenge: U.S. Bank APConnector™, a universal adapter

organization’s ERP software, APConnector makes the path to payment
automation seamless and cost effective. It allows organizations to send

corporate invoices electronically no longer requires a major commitment
of information technology (IT) resources. Set-up time for launching a
virtual card solution shrinks to as little as a few weeks, versus up to
three months in a conventional set up.
“APConnector removes a primary barrier to virtual card adoption:
Accounts Payable system integration,” said U.S. Bank Virtual Payments
General Manager Bob Kaufman. “With APConnector, organizations can
realize the increased efficiency and cost savings offered by U.S. Bank
Virtual Pay without modifying their ERP systems or undergoing a major IT
project. Even if a client changes ERP systems, they can continue to use

Software, a leading disbursement automation software provider for
accounts payable systems. “The last mile in automating the
procure-to-pay process is connecting customers’ accounting systems to
their financial institution’s treasury system,” said Regal Software CEO
Kofi Conduah. “U.S. Bank turns that final mile into a sprint with its
APConnector tool. It makes the whole process very simple and adds a
higher level of security at the same time.”
