C-Series’ seamless integration with existing back-office systems enables customers to quickly implement and take advantage of enhanced reporting, manipulation and distribution capabilities.

“Obtaining an accurate view of corporate cash is vital to the heath of any organization, allowing companies to reduce cost and risk, make better investment decisions, optimize working capital and increase profitability,” said Chip Martin, Bottomline’s vice president of enterprise payments. “We are excited to partner with Raymond James to help them achieve these strategic goals.”
