Clutch Coffee Bar Fueled Growth With The Plate IQ Card & Payment Automation

Plate IQ Clients Clutch Coffee Bar Operators pose in shop

“A huge priority for us is automation so that we can grow as lean as we can… When we set up a new store, we’ll issue a group of new Plate IQ vCards and give them to the new vendors. Each vendor charges a card that is already classified, and it gets exported to our ERP journaled to that expense category. We don’t have to think about it… All of our virtual cards are pre-assigned to a GL account, so that when transactions come through on them, they’re immediately classified to a particular expense account and exported to NetSuite.”

Five Star Plus Customer Service. Plate IQ I would recommend to any industry for invoice management and streamlining…

We also use the Plate IQ vendor pay, which allows us to pay vendors with check, ACH, or virtual card. Checks are printed & mailed by Plate IQ so I don’t have to cut them in the office. Their support & account management team is excellent.

I am totally happy with Plate IQ for AP and [Vendor]Pay!

The bill pay feature is awesome. It has saved me time and money…

The scanning of invoices vs. manually inputting them into Quickbooks is a huge benefit.
