Additional Job Information

 

While this
person will be responsible for handling payment application for one of our
clients, they will be focused on the processing of carrier payments for their
other four clients.  The payment application is limited to one
client.  For this one client, we handle invoicing to their 2,000
locations, and in turn, manage the incoming funds / payment
application.  

 

Carrier
Payments is our primary function as a team.  We run bills in our bswift
system, perform a number of audits / reconciliations, and using Excel, prepare
a summary of amounts due to each of the client's carriers.  Once the
client approves, and funds our billing bank account, we in turn make payments
to each of their carriers.

 

As this
role deals primarily with determining premium payments, attention to detail
(and organization) is crucial.  We must be 100% error free.  

For the
one payment application client, we are using a new billing system specific to
this client, the billing system:  Certifi.  New system implemented
11/1/2018.  This system automates much of the payment process.  We
systematically import and apply the client lockbox checks and ACH
payments.  I add this note to highlight the automation, versus a manual
process.
