BPAY launches new BatchMaker payments solution

By

Payments provider BPAY Group has launched BPAY BatchMaker, a solution designed to help small businesses pay multiple suppliers at the same time, thus creating efficiencies by reducing manual processing.

The company announced that cloud accounting provider QuickBooks is its first partner for BatchMaker, with the app now available to QuickBooks customers free of charge, via the QuickBooks app store.

QuickBooks — part of Intuit — customers can use the BPAY BatchMaker app with their cloud accounting package, and it is available for BPAY Batch payers who bank with Bankwest, Commonwealth Bank, Macquarie Bank, NAB or Westpac.

BPAY says future releases of BatchMaker are expected to add other financial institutions and functionality.

“BPAY BatchMaker has the ability to solve numerous pain points for small businesses, accountants, and accounts payable. This is key to our strategy to innovate around the BPAY product and continually improve the experience for consumers, SMEs and business,” said Keith Brown, general manager, Product Scheme and Business Development at BPAY Group.

“We are proud to partner with QuickBooks, pioneering a collaborative approach to product innovation, with the central aim of reducing inefficiencies and helping to increase financial capabilities for small businesses.”

BPAY says the new application is an easy and convenient way to:

  • Capture invoice data;
  • Instantly validate BPAY payment information avoiding errors later on;
  • Create BPAY and EFT batch files in the right format, for customers to send on to their bank for processing; and
  • Match invoices with existing suppliers allowing for easy reconciliation.

Nicolette Maury, vice-president and country manager of Intuit Australia, says: “Our aim at Intuit is to simplify the day-to-day running of small businesses.

“So, we are delighted to offer BPAY BatchMaker to our QuickBooks customers as it will help streamline their financial management and also eliminate inefficiencies. This is just one more way in which Intuit is helping to pave the way for small businesses to grow and prosper.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
