Welcome to DadeSystems

Who We Are

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, DadeSystems was launched in 2011 with one singular purpose—to deliver a clean slate, next generation suite of innovative payment systems that would revolutionize how organizations handle their incoming payments. Our goal from the start was to help clients achieve unprecedented efficiencies and bottom-line benefits. Through our advanced technology platform and decades of receivable solution experience, the result is the DadePay family of products, a robust system with the most advanced features and capabilities in the industry.

DadeSystems was founded by David Wilson, one of the country’s leading payment solutions experts and a successful entrepreneur who founded ERAS JV in 1995.  The company pioneered the development and implementation of the first web-based lockbox, check image processing, cash letter clearing, document imaging, positive pay, account monitoring, overdraft control and ATM balancing solutions. ERAS JV’s success led to an acquisition by Diebold, and soon thereafter, David set out to revolutionize the payments industry once again, founding DadeSystems in 2011.


Today, DadeSystems combines state-of-the-art payment processing systems with a team of highly experienced professionals who possess hands-on, real-world knowledge in account receivables, lockbox and item processing. This marriage of technology and expertise enables DadeSystems clients to meet the toughest account receivables management challenges, even in today’s complex, highly distributed, multi-channel environment.


With a diverse range of clients—banks and credit unions, manufacturers, property management firms, insurers, distributors and other organizations—DadeSystems innovative payment systems are dedicated to delivering payment solutions that empower clients to gain control, transparency and  visibility over the entire payment lifecycle to ultimately, increase their profitability.

Our vision was to build a next generation integrated  receivable solution
that would truly revolutionize how an enterprise processes incoming payments.

We set some pretty high standards with what our solution needed to support, including:


  • Simple and rapid deployment based on a browser of the customer’s choice
  • Native support for mobile platforms including both iOS and Android
  • SaaS delivery model that facilitates rapid deployments and allows for continual application improvements through application refreshes that don’t require customer upgrades
  • An innovative payment processing system that doesn’t require any modification of our customers’ existing applications
  • The ability to capture a businesses’ payment at the point of presentment, whether it be at the central office or in the field, through a mobile device
  • An image analysis engine that can read and interpret all possible information on the payment or remittance documents
  • A matching engine that can pair payments to outstanding invoices and improve over time as it recognizes past matching patterns
  • The ability to process a payment straight through including the update to the customer’s billing/AR system without manual intervention

Today we’ve realized our vision
with the DadePay family of products.
