By René Lacerte, Founder & CEO of Bill.com
Today is a great day at Bill.com. Today we reveal the next major step in alleviating the headaches and information roadblocks that plague finance departments everywhere. Today, we have launched the Bill.com App Center which is an open, SaaS-based platform focused on streamlining workflows and supercharging productivity not just for CFOs but for entire companies.
Finance departments are often in their own silo, unaware of purchases or sales that impact cashflow until it is too late. The Bill.com App Center creates critical bridges to the finance function. The result is essential business tools from cross-company departments are now integrated into the finance system. At launch, our App Center streamlines the finance department’s workflow, bringing together key tools such as expense management, online mail management, and accounting systems.
One of our first integrations is with the expense management solution Tallie. This integration means that finance professionals are able to finally combine bill payment and expense report automation, two functions essential to financial management which have not yet been seamlessly integrated. Finance professionals will have a clearer view—and better control—of their cashflow than before with the integration between payables, receivables, and expense reporting. Similarly, by integrating with Earth Class Mail, our customers now have an easy way to digitize their paper bills, making it simple to get these critical documents into Bill.com, where they can be easily categorized, approved, stored, and paid.
And this is just the beginning. We have many more integrations to announce in the months to come, all of which will help continue to alleviate the process headaches businesses face every day. We have revolutionized the core payables and receivables financial processes by automating them and we believe that by harnessing the power of the Cloud and open API’s we can help others reinvent all business processes. This is our commitment to you and our inspiration for the App Center. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to your feedback in the months to come.
