Another time-saving management tool is Merrimack24 Remote Deposit which gives you the power to deposit checks from the comfort of your office, saving you from making trips to the bank and giving you 24/7 convenience.
Here’s how it works. A small desktop scanner is connected to your office computer and the Internet. When you receive checks, you simply connect to The Merrimack through an easy-to-use interface, scan checks with the scanner, and deposits are made electronically. Security is ensured through the latest encryption technology.
Sweep to Investment. The Merrimack's Investment Sweep will relieve you of making the decision on when to transfer funds to make the most of your idle cash. Each day after all debits and credits are posted, excess available funds above a predetermined target balance in your commercial checking account are automatically invested into a Daily Repurchase Agreement investment or money market account. In addition, we can link multiple zero balance accounts (ZBAs) to enhance your return.
Sweep to Line of Credit. Our Line of Credit Sweep will relieve you of making the decision on when to transfer funds to or from your Line of Credit. Each day after all debits and credits are posted, excess available funds above a predetermined target balance in your commercial checking account are automatically used to pay down your line. If funds are insufficient in your account to cover check presentments, funds are automatically advanced from your Line of Credit.
Sweep to Line to Investment. A combination of the Sweep to Investment and the Sweep to Line services, this sweep will use any excess funds above a predetermined target balance to pay down your Line of Credit and sweep funds to your investment product with any other available balance. If there are deficient funds in the operating account to cover checks presented, funds will be moved from the Investment first and if needed there would be an advance on the Line of Credit.
Zero Balance Accounts (ZBA). Zero Balance Accounts enable your business to maintain separate checking accounts for bookkeeping purposes while eliminating idle balances and the need to make manual transfers. The ZBA is linked to the main operating account and maintains a zero balance until all checks are posted, at which time the ZBA account will be automatically funded.
The ZBA provides an inexpensive way to concentrate all your funds into your main operating account to maximize your return. The most common use for this type of account is a Payroll account, but they are also used to concentrate funds from several locations into one central account.
Direct Deposit. Using ACH for direct deposit offers several distinct benefits for your company and your employees. With direct deposit, you can make life easier for your employees by eliminating the need to visit the bank to cash or deposit payroll checks. For your company, it saves you the time and expense of producing paper checks for payroll, expense reimbursements, stock dividends, company bonuses, pensions, and interest payments.
Direct Payment. With direct payment, you can completely automate your collection process. Once your customers agree to having their recurring payments debited from their account, you can electronically collect funds and transfer them to your business account at the bank. There's no need to mail invoices or wait for checks to be returned in the mail.
In addition, with Cash Concentration services, you can electronically transfer funds between business accounts, even if they are at different financial institutions.
