For over three decades the ACH system has been used by businesses as an alternative to checks and wire transfers for both incoming and outgoing payments.  First Bank offers a wide variety of ACH services that can help your business streamline its cash flow, contain costs, reduce business risks, and improve control over payments.

Collection Features:

  • First Bank’s Gateway Information Reporting and Transaction Initiation Service enables you to view incoming ACH payments, originate and monitor pre-authorized payments, and originate Cash Concentration files for collecting funds from outlying depository accounts.
  • ACH payments allow you to control the settlement date of transactions and optimize control over your cash flow.
  • ACH payments are immediately available on the day of receipt, eliminating uncollected funds associated with check receipts.

Disbursement Features:

  • First Bank’s Gateway Information Reporting and Transaction Initiation Service allows you to originate all types of ACH transactions, including Direct Deposit of Payroll, business-to-business payments, vendor payments and tax payments.
  • ACH payments reduce many of the inherent risks associated with check-based transactions.
  • ACH disbursements provide predictable transaction settlement and a lower cost alternative to wire transfers.
