First Choice Medical Supply to Improve Vendor Payment Experience With Paymode-X

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Nov. 04, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bottomline Technologies (NASDAQ:EPAY), a leading provider of cloud-based payment, invoice, and digital banking solutions today announced that First Choice Medical Supply, a top distributor of medical and housekeeping supplies, has selected Bottomline’s Paymode-X payment network to automate their vendor payments and optimize working capital.

First Choice Medical Supply knew they could improve efficiency within their accounts payable department by converting checks to electronic payments and providing vendors with access to a payment portal. In selecting Paymode-X, they were able to find a payment solution that was flexible enough to work with their existing accounting system and current banking relationship. They sought the help of their financial institution, Trustmark, a Paymode-X referral partner. Through this partnership, First Choice Medical Supply evaluated and ultimately selected Paymode-X to achieve their goals.

“Paymode-X met our criteria for an easy-to-implement electronic payment solution,” said Stacey Holy, Chief Financial Officer. “With Paymode-X, our vendors can now access the Paymode-X portal to report on payment information and receive CTX/EDI remittance data to apply payments more quickly.”

Paymode-X facilitates the online exchange of electronic payments and remittance advices between payers and vendors – all in a user-friendly and intuitive format. Paymode-X is one of the world’s largest business-to-business payment networks with more than 300,000 members. A growing number of companies use Paymode-X to migrate from paper to electronic payments and gain efficiencies.

“It’s a privilege to welcome First Choice Medical Supply to Paymode-X through our relationship with Trustmark,” said Jessica Moran, General Manager of Cloud Payment Solutions at Bottomline Technologies. “Paymode-X will help First Choice create efficiencies in their AP department and provide an improved payment experience for their vendors.”
