Velocity’s Invoice Dashboards Make Utility Costs Easy to Manage


(August 7, 2008) — Velocity, a leading provider of resident utility billing and invoice processing services for the multifamily industry, today announced the availability of new, industry-leading convenience in its Velocity Invoice Processing Service customer dashboard.

“Our customers have come to expect the reliability and convenience of outsourcing their utility invoice processing to Velocity. Customers who use our invoice processing services have access to an online dashboard interface that shows the summary of their daily accounts payable batch uploads. A click on any batch entry provides drill-down capability and scanned invoice images. Velocity now also provides that same careful treatment to account notices. We’re pleased to be able to provide this extra level of service to our customers,” stated Ashley Glover, president, Velocity.

Velocity’s Invoice Processing dashboard now consists of:

  • Outstanding Invoices – shows any invoices expected but not yet received, which allows Velocity to follow up with vendors to ensure invoices are accounted for in a timely manner.
  • A/P Extract – shows daily invoice totals, highlighting items that need to be paid quickly. E-mail alerts escalate issues that need immediate attention to the right personnel.
  • Vendor Notices – provides high-level visibility for any type of notice. This is especially important for disconnect and late notices. Additionally, account history drill-down capability makes it easy to view and understand what actions have already been taken on an item.

“It’s so convenient to have all of this information in a single place,” stated Chris Smurda, vice president of accounting operations, Lion Gables Realty. “Not only does it save us time sorting through mailed notices but also saves us unnecessary expenses and hassle by being on top of things.”
