15 Aug Future Forwarding Partnering for Online Invoice Payments
The trend by consumers to move to more electronic forms of payment and eliminate traditional payment methods which took off during the pandemic is only accelerating. Understandably business to business payments require a more robust solution than tapping phones or snapping QR codes to send a few dollars to your favorite comedian or musician.
Future Forwarding uses industry-leading software provider CargoWise for our operational technology and our IT group, working in tandem with our financial partner Regions Bank, developed a system to make it quicker, easier and more secure to pay our invoices.
Here’s how it works:
On regular intervals, CargoWise and Regions communicate securely with one another, providing an updated ledger of outstanding invoices. The underlying platform can be logged into here or bookmark this URL in your favorites: https://regions.billeriq.com/ebpp/FutureFwding/Login/Index
You’ll get a login screen that looks like this:
You can either set up your own account or Future Forwarding would be happy to do so on your behalf. To set up your own login ID you will need to match your Client ID (located in the upper right-hand corner of the invoice) and billing zip code.
Once logged in, you’ll be able to perform a variety of accounting functions, including:
- View and download invoices
- View history of payments
- Pay an invoice (or invoices)
Future developments for the platform include setting up automatic payments in the future, but for now users can quickly and easily log in, review their account and make payments. It is faster and more secure than sending paper checks and supports financial audit trails.
