Faster and more convenient than cheques

Meridian’s Commercial Automated Funds Transfer Service (CAFT) is the ideal way to take cheques out of your payments and receivables equation. It allows you to send and receive all recurring payments directly from or into your bank account. Once payments are pre-authorized, you no longer have to worry about them - they just happen, automatically.
