Kaleo and Epic River Partner to create ACH Payment Software for the Hospitality Industry

Posted by Jessica Toney | Jul 12, 2013 7:44:35 AM

Accounting software continues to evolve to meet the needs of its customers, and the hospitality industry is no different. When hotels discovered that their existing software did not offer the ability to schedule daily payments via an automated clearing house (ACH), they sought out the consulting firm, Kaleo Technology. Kaleo was able to bundle several software packages and a manual process to solve the immediate problem, but there came a time when Kaleo was ready to enhance the ACH payment software with a more automated process.

Thus, a partnership between Kaleo and Epic River was formed, and the PayLink module was born. PayLink is a fully automated payment processing system and a perfect combination of Kaleo's deep understanding of the hotel industry's needs along with Epic River's ability to accelerate the process of software development.

"Having previous experience with Epic River, I knew that partnering with the company would result in a high quality product, focusing on the customer need coupled with a quick delivery date," noted DJ Landreneau, founder of Kaleo Technology.

But Kaleo is not the only party reaping the benefits. With the inclusion of PayLink into their accounting system, hotel managers can now initiate a vendor payment directly to the new module without manually creating a file that needs further processing. What's more, users can view transactions from the date submitted and void transactions, if necessary.

“Giving hotel managers the ability to look up the status of a transaction and void payments as necessary really puts them in the driver's seat,” said Jeff Grobaski, Director of Business Development and Account Management at Epic River. "Handing the control over to hotel accounting managers empowers them to oversee their own accounting while quickly and easily processing vendor payments."
