ACH & Positive Pay Processing

    Hi,
    We are looking for a way to have our ACH & Pos. Pay files get sent over to our banks automatically after getting generated, without end user interaction of the file(s). Does anyone know if there is any sort of out of the box functionality for this or integration with sFTP services?

    When automation is required, we usually work with an ISV called SK Global  that specializes in banking processes:  https://sksoft.com/dynamics-ax/treasury-automation/vendor-payment-automation/

    I'm sure that it's possible to build it using other tools as well.

    Thank you, Shirley. We actually have a demo scheduled with SK Global next week. I was curious on if there were any other alternatives out there, just to have some options when making a decision.

    Justin,

    Agreed with Shirley, the SK Global ISV is the most preferable route in my experience. The majority of the clients I work with leverage SK.

    If you're seeking an alternative method, you'll most likely end up requiring a Logic App that takes the file export from D365 and uploads it via SFTP to your bank's server or another file share.

    In the past I implemented ACH payment in D365.
    It's out of the box, and is quite robust.

    For positive pay, there seems to be out of the box functionality described here (I have not implemented it myself)
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/finance/accounts-payable/set-up-generate-positive-pay-files

    While the SKG product is good and popular, it probably make sense to assess the out of the box options as well

    I'm in the process of setting up ACH for both U.S. NACHA and European SEPA Credit payments. The main issue with the out of the box solution seems to be a lack of support for sending remittance details, at least on the NACHA side. D365 supports CCD and CTX file formats, but without any addenda detail. This is severely limiting. I haven't gotten far enough on the SEPA side to see if addenda are supported there, but I highly doubt it. If the data is available to be printed on a check stub, it should be available to the ACH file creation.

    This is something I posted to Microsoft Ideas back in 2019, and it still isn't in. I'd appreciate any votes you folks would give it. Microsoft Idea · Add support for addenda lines to NACHA CCD+ and CTX file formats (dynamics.com)

    Hi Steve!

    Easley isn't too far from me, just relocated to Five Forks ;)!

    Check out this blog, which leverages out of the box functionality to send payment advice to vendors: https://vamsipraneethdax.blog/2020/08/09/emailing-payment-advice-using-batch-job-and-print-management-configuration-in-dynamics-365-finance/

    I also have built a modification for similar functionality over at MCA Connect. If you ever want to sync up, let me know!
