Departmental Deposits

Web Departmental Deposits

Cash and/or check deposits must be recorded electronically using TouchNet U.Commerce Central. Through TouchNet U.Commerce Central, departmental users prepare online deposits which allows the user to determine the tender type and to allocate those funds to the appropriate account string.

TouchNet User Training
