Bluechain accounts automation
Streamline bill payments and invoicing by integrating Bluechain with your accounts.
Manage your payments on the go
Once your bookkeeper enters and approves a bill in the accounts, a payment request is sent to your phone for approval. You don’t have to log into the accounts or go to a bank portal to complete the payment. You can action the request anytime, anywhere. View the details of the bill in the app before you schedule or pay. You can even answer questions from suppliers about scheduled or past payments from the history stored on your phone.
Get paid faster by sending invoices to your customers as soon as they are approved in your accounting software. Customers receive the invoice directly in their Bluechain app for scheduling and payment. The status of the invoice is updated in your accounting software as it is scheduled and paid.
Bluechain’s integrated Accounts Payable reduces the workload on bookkeepers and simplifies the payment process for business owners. Approve bills individually or create a batch for bulk payment. Approved bills are sent to the business owner’s Bluechain phone app for payment, where they can view, revise and authorise each bill or the entire batch.
Integration is so seamless that there is no change to the bookkeeper’s normal daily routine and no additional training is required. Bluechain automates the entire payment process, reducing the workload on your bookkeeper. No need to create a bank file or create payments in the bank portal or chase the owner to approve the payment or mark bills as paid. It all happens automatically. Changes made by the owner in the app are automatically communicated back to the accounts in real time.
When you create a batch payment in the accounts, the batch comes through to the app as a single notification, allowing you to quickly pay all bills for a “planned date” in a single action. Each bill is processed individually, so it’s easy to reconcile payments with the bank feed. Importantly, a bill is only marked as paid in the accounts when it’s actually been paid or part-paid. The bookkeeper or accountant has total visibility as batches are built, modified, scheduled and paid, which means less work for the bookkeeper and greater convenience for the business.
