Business Sweep

Coping with daily fluctuations in your business's cash flow requires a lot of painstaking and time-consuming decisions. But you can't afford to do them hastily. That's where Business Sweep comes in. Business Sweep is a fully automated cash management solution that saves staff time as it minimizes the cost of holding cash.

How it works
At the end of each business day, Business Sweep calculates the net available1 balance position in your commercial checking account and then compares the result to a predetermined target balance. Then, if your net cash position is greater than your target balance, Business Sweep automatically uses excess funds to pay down your line of credit2, or transfers excess funds into an investment vehicle that you select.

If your net cash position is less than your target balance, Business Sweep automatically transfers funds from your chosen investment vehicle to cover the shortage or borrows the necessary funds against your line of credit.

Because Business Sweep processing occurs at the end of the business day, you'll never need to predict what the day's income or expenses are going to be.
