There are always multiple platforms and processing systems– both internal and external – involved in the processing of payments: an internal ERP or core order entry system, a merchant gateway, files being passed form the merchant to the bank, and, of course, from the bank back to the general ledger - lots of possible failure points. A reconciliation platform provides the glue to ensure, not necessarily that the payments are actually being processed, but that they are being done so correctly.
