A tailored bill payment solution that is accurate, timely and secure
Paying bills on behalf of high-net-worth families and individuals requires rigorous controls and processes. But traditional bill pay solutions oftentimes consist of highly manual processes and poorly suited software to manage vendor information, track expenses, manage cash flow and pay bills.
To serve the unique expense management needs of wealthy families, SEI Family Office Services designed an exclusive personal expense management service that allows family offices, financial institutions and private wealth advisors to offload the tedious and time-consuming client bill payment process to our highly-skilled team of accounting professionals. This service leverages deep accounting expertise and sophisticated, proprietary expense management and bill payment tools housed within the Archway PlatformSM to deliver an efficient, controlled and secure accounts payable alternative.
