Example use cases
Reconcile instant transactions.
Company A often spends countless hours reconciling payments made from or received in their various U.S. Bank deposit accounts to their internal company systems (e.g., ERP). Using this API, Company A can instantly pull transaction details directly from U.S. Bank into any system to automate the reconciliation process. No need to review transactions online or from bank statements.
Improve cash positioning.
Company B would like to maximize their cash flow and only fund accounts when necessary. By using the Corporate Account Information API, they can project cash positions in their U.S. Bank deposit accounts by pulling balance information into their company system (e.g., ERP) and reconciling payments made or received in real time. If an account balance is projected to overdraft, Company B can immediately fund the account with the amount of the overdraft.
View account balances in one place.
A manager responsible for managing the company’s cash and approving all major payments to employees, vendors and third parties is often concerned about over drafting accounts and wants to ensure accounts are capitalized prior to payment disbursement. With the Corporate Account Information API, the manager can view U.S. Bank deposit account balances directly from the company system without having to log in to multiple systems to view balances across different accounts and banks.
Improve treasury reporting.
A manager maintains an analytics dashboard, which provides vital financial information and insights for the company. The manager wants to understand how deposit account balances fluctuate over time in relation to a sales cycle and credit line leverage. The Corporate Account Information API helps the manager pull U.S. Bank deposit account balances, perform the analysis needed to assess previous transactions data, and predict financial spending.
