Workday Highlight: Accounts Payable & Preferred Payment Methods

Workday allows for a preferred payment type for suppliers.  As Accounts Payable works with suppliers, available methods for payments are established.  For example, a given supplier may accept checks, money orders, electronic Automatic Clearing House (ACH) or credit card payments.  As a result of communications between Accounts Payable and this particular supplier, it’s determined that ACH would be the method of choice.  Workday’s flexibility allows Accounts Payable to set ACH as this supplier’s preferred payment option.  This method will be used for future payments unless an accepted alternative is specified on the invoice or payment request.  This added functionality creates a cooperative environment between the University and its suppliers and allows for smoother transactions.
