  • Are you paying more – and maybe sooner - than you should?

    The way you manage payments directly affects your business efficiency – especially if you transact in cash or checks. Let Silicon Valley Bank advisors help you make full use of the alternative payment methods to extend payment terms with suppliers, eliminate paper processes and manual data entry, effectively reconcile accounts, and monitor for fraud.

    Our comprehensive payables options include:
