Scale your AP & AR business with Parakeet

Use Parakeet to remove manual AP & AR processes for your business and free up time to service more clients. 

For bills (AP), use Parakeet to auto-pay your customer's EFT bill payments  or pay BPAY bills via batching and BPAY Auto-Pay options.

For invoices (AR),  set up your clients to take online & recurring payments with their existing banking or credit card facilities using BYO online payments. 

 

Convert sales into cash quickly with real-time early payment discounts and help introduce BPAY  to Xero invoices to simplify reconciliation. 

 

Instead of spending your time making and collecting payments or fixing client reconciliation errors, contact us to see how our automation can help you.

Approve the bills in Xero

We will never pay a bill unless it has been approved in Xero by you or your clients. 

 

We accept all approval tools such as Xero's in-built approval button or another app like Approval Max.  

 

You can also add an extra layer of control by enabling Parakeet's in-build approval tool. 

Once it's approved, we schedule, pay and reconcile the bills. 

That's it. We pay the bills on the due date

We will automatically pay BPAY and EFT bills for your clients when they are due. 

 

For BPAY batches, we email the batch to you or your clients for action.

Reconciliation

 

We also automate the book-keeping entries so you can spend more time on growing your business and less time reconciling bill entries. 

You can see the reconciliation entries here.
