Rep Payee Manager

rpmIf you’re trying to manage payees with only QuickBooks™ then you are probably aware of the maxim “the right tool for the job.” QuickBooks™ is a great program for what it is designed to do, but managing payees is not within its job description. That is where RPM comes in. Sharing the load makes for a lighter load and RPM and QuickBooks™ working together takes the best of both and returns a superior product: payee management that is easy yet comprehensive.

What do I mean by that? I mean a home page where in one place you can see all the SSI recipients who are over resources and by how much; upcoming bills or bills that are past-due; back payment status for each active back payment, the resolve date, the total and remaining balance; even birthday and other important alerts. Then, a payee dashboard that displays a complete account summary including their income, expenses and it auto calculates the payee paychecks for you; the check register, individual alerts, all the bills, notes, back payments and relationships.

A growing list of reports to help you perform your job better and faster. For example: the payee income report printed out before you run the next month will include income and back payments being deposited on the 1st. That report will give you something to check off and confirm each deposit. There are reports for which payees are renting, where and how much they pay; who isn’t renting; who has back payments and their full status; a list of the vendors and their payees and the reverse; who is suspended and inactive; who is set to not have their paychecks printed and the other side of it, who has paychecks waiting to be printed and many more. Most reports are exportable to CSV/Excel format.

RPM does the management and the transactions are exported out to an IIF file for QuickBooks™, where you print checks and reconcile accounts. Check out the video below to get a quick overview of how RPM works, then login to the demo to look around and try it out.

 RPM – Feature Highlights

ACCOUNT SUMMARY

The summary for each payee displays checking balance, income sources, total income, active bill totals, reserve, total spending for the month, and based on the payment frequency you set for the payee, how many paychecks and how much each will be, including the pay dates, the balance after execution for both the system calculated spending and the override spending.

BILL CONTROL

The easy to see interface lists all the bills for the payee, the due date, whether they will be included in the next execution or not and if they are suspended.

As each bill is paid, the date increments to the next month automatically, unless you’ve set an end date. The legend clearly shows you the meanings in the Amount and Inc columns.

BACK PAYMENT MONITORING

Just one glance and you will understand where this payee is with regards to their back payments and any possible resource issues. The due and resolve by dates, the amount, the status of deposited and resolved. Hover over the help bubble and you get a calculation of what needs to be added to the system calculated paycheck amount, which you would enter into the payment override.
