While Treasury Software products are easy to use from the user interface, we realize that many clients want to automate the process.
Our Software Integration Kit (SIK) enables you to automate the import, file creation and transmittal processes.
No programming is required!
1. Activate a selection.
The entire setup is performed from within the program (main menu > 'Automation' > 'Advanced - Software Integration Kit'). Next, select an existing entry and select Add/Edit.
Check the 'Active' box and give it a name. Select the file or the directory that the import files will be located in.
2. Archiving (advanced) - preserving the Audit Trail.
After the files are imported - the system can move them to a different directory to preserve the audit trail.
Remember: Our software will copy your files to the archive directory. If your file names don't change, we will simply be over-writing the existing files - which is not a good audit trail.
Therefore, take advantage of our ability to make the file names unique. Our software can append the date-time to the file names - making the file names unique. That way, when they are moved to the archive folder, your audit trail is preserved.
3. Automation Processes
After importing and archiving the files, the system can trigger the file creation process.
If a custom action is not selected, the system will simply import and archive the files without creating and transmitting the file.
Want to transmit your ACH file to your bank using SSH-FTP?
Please see our detailed check list at SSH-FTP.
You can trigger the transmission from the Software Integration Kit or from a manual import file. SSH requires either a Corporate or Processor level license of ACH Universal.
4. Reporting a 'receipt' of activity
Want a written receipt of what happened during the process? Check the box for a linked summary of all the files.
Didn't check the box? The detail is always is available individually in the Import Logs.
Setup is now complete.
1. Scheduled - Set it to run as a scheduled task with your Windows Task Scheduler
Or - of course run it with any scheduler or batch command utility
Have advanced needs?
Fully tweak the schedule from within Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler
2. Manual - As a desktop shortcut
Place the command line within a desktop shortcut and trigger it manually whenever you want.
3. Process - Within third-party software
Run the automation as part of another process. 'Shell-out' from any software application, or from any report generator and trigger ACH Universal.
