PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 16, 2013 - Bill.com, the leader in integrated bill payment, invoicing and cash flow management solutions for businesses, today announced a new Bill.com Developer Program that offers developers a simple way to integrate applications with the Bill.com Business Payments Network. Bill.com is bringing the power and ease of the Bill.com solution to serve new, broader markets via the new Bill.com Developer Program and website-which features sample code, use cases and FAQs. Application developers, high volume customers, integrators and customers seeking business-specific payments solutions can simplify integration with financial applications, avoid risks of regulatory non-compliance and reach the more than 275,000 users that already use the Bill.com Business Payments Network to pay and get paid.
The Bill.com platform is uniquely positioned to drive the development of applications that focus on accounting and financial workflows that span multiple businesses. The Bill.com App Center, launched in September 2013, showcases the partner applications built on the Bill.com platform using the tools and resources available in the Bill.com Developer Program. These applications - along with connectors developed by integrators and custom applications designed by customers - create financial process efficiencies and capabilities previously unattainable by customers.
For application developers, the Bill.com Developer Program lets them expand their financial applications with deep payables, receivables and payments capabilities while expanding their business opportunities via Bill.com’s rapidly growing network of users. In addition, using Bill.com saves application developers time. By integrating once with Bill.com, they can reap the benefit of Bill.com’s integrations with all the leading financial applications. All associated data automatically flows to any of the popular accounting programs with which Bill.com syncs, such as QuickBooks Online and for Windows, Xero, Intacct and NetSuite. And by adding automated payments to any applications, developers can bridge the "last mile" between financial applications and electronic payments.
For high-transaction-volume customers, integrating with Bill.com adds scalable, automated payments to their automated processes. If a business application, for example, sends out rebate checks or electronic payments to many customers, suppliers, vendors, or other entities, the customer can use the Bill.com API to upload the payees' information to an account in Bill.com, create bills to pay them, and use Bill.com's bill payment system to mail checks or pay them electronically, creating new back-office efficiencies. In addition, by relying on the Bill.com financial and regulatory expertise, customers can eliminate the challenging risks of non-compliance with federal regulations.
For integrators, who always seek to deliver innovative and unique solutions to their customers, adding Bill.com automated payables and receivables extends the value of their portfolio. These capabilities can help them target the many businesses that are endeavoring to drive greater efficiencies in financial processes. Integrating with Bill.com also lets them focus on their core competence instead of wasting valuable time cultivating expertise with financial workflows and processes. Similarly, for customers seeking business-specific payments solutions, integrating with Bill.com allows them to generate new efficiencies in financial processes by using the Bill.com award-winning payables and receivables capabilities.
"The Bill.com Business Payments Network is growing exponentially because it is making it easier than ever for businesses to pay and get paid," said René Lacerte, founder and CEO, Bill.com. "Giving developers the tools and APIs they need to extend our solution to new markets, will truly open the flood gates and move all financial processes one step closer to the cloud. Eliminating paper, its inefficiencies and inaccuracies is core to our mission. We look forward to seeing the amazing new solutions our growing developer community will create."
