Reliable and fast vendor payments are critical for dealerships because they must keep their inventory stocked and bills paid to grow and scale with the ever-changing market. Too often, payments are slowed by the manual process of cutting and mailing checks which leave dealerships with high labor costs associated with the accounts payable (AP) process.
Dealers Streamline Vendor Payments and Improve Their Bottom Line
Automating the AP process enables dealerships to eliminate paper checks and processing costs, improve vendor relations, reduce manual labor, track and update payments automatically and reconcile with robust reporting. Additionally, automating the process can reduce the risk of errors and free up staff to focus more on core business operations enabling dealerships to focus more on increasing sales and marketing opportunities, improving customer service and driving customer loyalty.
Integration With Ease
Using REPAY with a dealer's DMS allows them to accept batch invoice files, automatically pay vendors using their preferred methods and track those payments in real time. Invoices automatically update to reflect fulfilled payments, streamlining the AP process and lowering the time and costs typically associated with it. Dealerships can save an average of $8 per transaction when eliminating paper checks!
Work Smarter, Not Harder
Using a credit card, virtual card or ACH to pay vendors automatically reduces manual entry and double reconciliation, leaving less room for errors and requiring less work from your team. Utilizing rebate-earning virtual cards is a more secure payment method that reduces card fraud.
Rebate-earning Virtual Cards Put Thousands Back into Your Business
Using virtual cards to pay vendors is more secure and allows the dealers' business to earn rebates based on the amount they spend. In one year, REPAY dealers are putting thousands of dollars back into their budgets thanks to using virtual cards with REPAY.
Seamless Payments From Start to Finish
When a dealer makes a vendor payment through the platform, invoices in the dealers DMS system automatically update to reflect fulfilled payments. Through REPAY's robust reporting, dealers gain visibility and control over AP through their management system.
