Web based payment solution to automate accounts payable

3.85/5 (13 reviews)

Comdata AP Automation overview

Comdata AP Automation is a web-based payment processing tool that automates accounts payable for small, medium and large businesses. The solution reduces the payment processing time by eliminating the need to manually process paper check payments.

Comdata AP Automation offers an integrated payables system called ConnectPay that links data from various financial systems and enables organizations to pay suppliers, vendors or individuals electronically. The single payment file solution can handle different payment types including checks, ACH or wire transfers.

Comdata AP Automation offers a virtual credit card that enables organizations to go paperless. This card is like a check that transfers payments electronically through a single-use MasterCard number. Virtual Credit Card helps in transferring the exact amount and reduces fraud rates. Comdata AP Automation offers a continuous vendor enrollment feature which ensures the timely addition of new vendors to the system to maximize its use. It is done by using advanced tools such as PayForYou and Spend Escalator. The software also integrates with major ERP and accounting software and allows organizations to add vendors and use their existing AP workflow.

Comdata AP Automation offers custom reporting tools to generate business insights as well. Comdata provides toolkits, reference guides, and training materials to support the implementation of AP Automation. A relationship management team and technical support representatives are on hand to solve customer problems in real-time.

Comdata - Excellent Payment Program and Online Access

Review Source: Capterra

The Comdata program has been a great overall experience. They have an excellent group to help rollout the program, and address all concerns or issues that may arise. The vendor maintenance group is awesome and extremely supportive, whether it comes to one-off new additions or enrollment campaigns. The website is well designed, to allow you any info and self-service you may need. Although you have contacts you can reach out to and get help very timely, who will see you through the issue. I am very impressed with Comdata, and would highly recommend them!

Pros
Streamlined look Quicklinks It's user friendly

Cons
The reports are not intuitive, and training is limited It would be nice to have a quicklinks to a card number and get all info on the card - right now you go one link to see if it's active, search again to get transaction history, another link to then block - Can you put all that info in one screen please?

Onboarding with the team from Comdata and OnPay was easy. They took a few sample files out of our accounting system and made the system work. We can now make check, ACH and Virtual Credit payments using the software. The GL reports make it easy to reconcile the cards. It's much less hassle than we expected. It's so much easier than using a p_card too. Making payments is much much easier than it ever has been.

Pros
Reporting is good. Settlement of Virtual Credit Cards is much easier than we thought it would be because of the GL reports that come back when we transmit new payments. Service is great. If I call or email someone from OnPay always gets back to me right way. We never have to wonder if our ticket is open. It opens and closes right away.

Cons
Sometime error messages are confusing which is why we open a ticket every once in a while.

Pros
I implemented this program 4 years ago and the service to help implement was excellent. We have saved a lot of money by converting our checks to virtual card payments plus we get a rebate from them.

Cons
We have had about four account representatives in so many years. They are relatively responsive when you put in a request but it is still sometimes difficult to keep up with who your rep is currently. Also, their website is pretty clunky. They are constantly making improvements to it, but I have still been disappointed in the difficulty to navigate and get the right data quickly.
