Does your firm face these challenges?
Busy law firms can’t afford to spend excess time on bank reconciliations. Because of frequent invoicing and fluctuating foreign currency, mismatched records can be a common occurrence. Both time and money can be lost through manual searching, re-entry and updating current items.
Our online platform eliminates this process through automation.
Uncertain cash flow cycles
When currencies fluctuate between invoicing a client and the payment’s due date, you may need to rebill clients or write-off discrepancies.
We can help your firm lock-in exchange rates for up 365 days to control foreign exchange exposure, enabling you to bill clients fixed amounts, efficiently manage cash flow and improve reconciliation.
