ETran A/R Automation Platform
ETran, by FTNI, consolidates and simplifies the acceptance, processing, cash application and management of multiple payment methods across various payment channels—helping businesses succeed and grow by streamlining A/R operations on a single cloud-based platform.
FTNI’s ETran solution is a flexible, cloud-based, integrated receivables processing platform ideal for businesses with one or many locations, payment channels, divisions or brands. ETran delivers a real-time, enterprise-wide view of all check, ACH, credit, debit, cash, online, and mobile payments for superior receivables management.
Unlike a dashboard that only displays transactional data from disparate systems, ETran supports the initiation, acceptance, processing and posting of all transactions from a single, unified platform. No changes to current business processes, bank and processor relationships, or other accounting software are required.

An agnostic receivable system means you don’t have to change platforms or rebuild existing processes as your business needs change today, tomorrow and years into the future.
Streamline and automate business processes, workflows, and exception management to increase efficiencies and save cost in your accounts receivable organization. ETran is configurable down to the user-level across multiple brands, LOBs, locations, customers and more.
