Seminar focuses on new financial technology tool that helps automate business accounting

LAFCU and the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) have teamed up to present a free seminar about a new financial technology that helps automate accounting for businesses that invoice clients.

The Small Biz Accounting Made (Really) Easy seminar is Tuesday, March 27, 8-9:30 a.m., at the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce, 500 E. Michigan Ave., Suite 200, Lansing, 48912. It’s open to chamber members who can also bring a guest.

There is no cost to attend; registration is recommended. Registration for LRCC members and their guests is at

“This is an excellent opportunity for our members to learn about business management tools and services available to them locally that can make running their businesses easier and more efficient,” said Kristin Beltzer, LRCC executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

LAFCU Senior Vice President of Marketing Kelli Ellsworth Etchison said, “This new state-of-the-art technology makes invoicing and accounting easier so business owners have more time to focus on their business.”

She noted that owners and managers of smaller businesses that invoice clients would have the most interest in the technology because it allows them to manage the bulk of their accounting in-house, without relying on others.

The technology offers the following features and benefits:

  • Invoices can be sent to clients via email and paid electronically by debit card, credit card or check.
  • Automatic payment reminders and late fees to clients speed collection.
  • Automatic bank reconciliation saves hours per week.
  • Free setup and questions answered by Michigan-based support team.

"There is no obligation for attendees,” Ellsworth Etchison says. "We are simply making businesses in the area aware of a new financial technology tool available to them.”
