Treasury management services offer tailored commercial banking solutions for cash management and payment needs. Services are principally broken into four categories: receivables, disbursements, fraud protection, and liquidity management.

Treasury management eases the tedious task of collecting and processing payments. ACH Receivables can collect funds from your customers, quickly and securely. Remote Deposit Capture allows check deposits to be scanned and deposited securely at any time of the day. Large volumes of cash can also be safely deposited, counted, logged, and secured. Lock Box services allow customers to remit payments to a special P.O. Box, so they can be deposited directly into your commercial account. Merchant Services enable the processing of customer credit and debit card payments.
