Feature Update_ Escrow Accounts for Financial Transactions.mp4


An Alvys Escrow account functions similarly to a savings account, involving deductions in anticipation of upcoming expenses. Its purpose is to reserve a portion of earnings for company drivers or owner-operators, covering various anticipated costs associated with their trucking operations.

Deposits and withdrawals can be made for company drivers and owner-operators into escrow accounts, either on a scheduled basis or as one-time deductions from their payroll. The system offers flexibility in scheduling these transactions, allowing users to choose based on a calendar, a set number of occurrences, or other customizable parameters.

In instances where one-time expenses are incurred, the system allows for the splitting of expenses, enabling the user to decide whether to deduct the expense from the payroll, the escrow account, or a combination of both.

Escrow account balances are monitored, with support for minimum and maximum limits. If the balance falls below the minimum, the system alerts the user to create a deposit and replenish the balance. On the other hand, if the balance exceeds the maximum, scheduled deposits are modified accordingly.
