What advantages does the FINSYNC – RBFCU partnership provide to small businesses? Let’s break down the biggest benefits of the partnership.
Helping Small Businesses Manage Their Finances
FINSYNC is an all-in-one payments platform designed to help businesses get all of their finances in sync. FINSYNC has partnered with RBFCU around the shared goal of helping businesses grow in new and empowering ways.
RBFCU members can now take advantage of FINSYNC’s innovative software and the many advantages it can provide their business. Here are four ways this partnership is helping the credit union help more businesses.
- Payment Flexibility
With FINSYNC Pay, customers can use a credit card to make payments to vendors and merchants that are not set up to receive credit payments. This capability provides a new level of payment flexibility that can dramatically improve cash flow.
Businesses can send vendors a payment on their charge card using just an email address, without the end recipient ever knowing or seeing their card information. Payment recipients can check out as a guest or set up an account for free.
In addition to credit card payments by email, FINSYNC offers bill pay by ACH and remote-cut check.
On the income side, FINSYNC Pay allows businesses to request a payment from a customer, who can then pay by ACH, charge card and even checks, which FINSYNC processes through its lockbox service.
With a combined set of payments tools, businesses can be 100% digital even if they have paper-based customers or vendors.
- Cash Flow Analysis
Many businesses struggle to visualize and understand their cash flow. According to the SBA, 82% of small businesses fail due to cash flow problems. Now that RBFCU business partners have FINSYNC in their arsenal, they can better manage their cash flow and stay on top of their finances.
The FINSYNC dashboard makes it easy to see all current metrics and predictive analytics to understand when and where cash flow issues may arise. These advanced cash flow analytics help businesses make informed financial decisions and grow as a business.
- Access to Expert Insight
Small businesses often have a need for professional financial assistance, but may not have the budget or need for full-time help. FINSYNC’s virtual assistance network offers businesses on-demand assistance from independent financial professionals.
For a fee, RBFCU members can access support for bookkeeping, accounting, human capital management or financial analysis. FINSYNC’s partner directory matches businesses with the right professional at the right time.
- Improved Efficiency
RBFCU members that use FINSYNC are able to operate more efficiently, so they can spend more time growing their businesses. The platform automates a variety of back-office tasks to improve operational efficiency and lower operating costs.

In today’s competitive banking landscape, forward-thinking financial institutions are looking for ways to offer their clients more value beyond traditional services, acting as true advocates for their small businesses. In partnering with FINSYNC, RBFCU is helping its members centralize control over their finances within a single platform so they can grow in new and empowering ways.
