ACH Universal™ Features

"It is a pleasurable experience working with people who obviously know what they are doing. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone." - Caledonian Bank & Trust

Treasury Software's ACH Universal™ provides an automated, secure, easy-to-use solution to create and transmit ACH files in any NACHA format.

Whether creating a file to pay employees or vendors, collecting funds from customers, or simply transferring funds between accounts, ACH Universal provides a wide range of unique features.

While most of our clients only require a few of these features, others need more advanced capabilities. ACH Universal meets the needs of businesses and banks of all sizes. Here is a sample of our unique features:

Note: Not all features are included in each edition level (Please see comparison chart).

ACH File Creation  
Balanced Files (offsetting records) You can include an 'offset' record within each ACH batch if required by your bank.
Bank Independent Create and transmit ACH files to an unlimited number of banks.

Recurring and one-time transactions One-time payments and collections - Allows for 'as-you-go' transactions without creating a profile for each recipient.
Recurring payments and collections - For those accounting packages that do not store account and routing/ABA numbers, ACH Universal creates profiles to hold this information.

In addition, customer, employee and vendor profile information can be imported in batch, or entered manually.
