CommBiz offers you the flexibility to control the access that different staff members have, depending on their role within your business. With the ability to set user and role permissions and the need to establish an authority to operate on each account, managing and monitoring your accounts becomes a simple, secure process.

User permissions

You are able to control the functionality provided to your staff using the user permissions function. Your nominated administrator(s) will decide what each of your users and authorisers can “see” and “do” within CommBiz.

Role permissions

CommBiz allows you to establish “roles” which represent common permissions for a group of users. Roles allow individual users to be assigned to a particular function, such as a payroll or accounts payable clerk.

Authority to operate

CommBiz requires an “electronic account authority” i.e., the authority to operate on an account, to be established for each account being accessed. The authority to operate outlines the number of authorisers required to authorise transactions on an account.

The authority to operate may also include rules such as monetary bands i.e., minimum and maximum payment limits, and authorisation lists e.g., A, B and C signatories. You can have a maximum of five lists and five monetary bands.

Authorised users established through the Express Registration mode will have authorisation rights across all accounts in your CommBiz service. The Express Registration only allows you to establish whether a given account will need one or two authorisers, regardless of the transaction value.
