Bill.com Saves Franchises Hundreds of Hours and Thousands of Dollars per Month
PALO ALTO, CALIF. - Feb. 21, 2013 - Bill.com, the leader in integrated bill payment, invoicing and cash management solutions for businesses, today furthered its commitment to the franchise marketplace by hiring financial industry veteran William Rickman in the newly created role of director of business development for the franchise market. Bill.com is already the choice of leading franchise businesses across the nation, saving these franchises hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars per month.
Rickman has more than ten years of experience in business development in the finance industry. Prior to joining Bill.com, Rickman was Vice President, Strategic Accounts for Bank of America Merchant Services. Rickman's efforts with point-of-service vendors and third-party payment providers were used as the model for his peers in the commercial division. As a sales executive with Fifth Third Bank, he developed solutions for business banking clients, including franchises that automated the payment process, reducing fraudulent transactions and cost of acceptance. Rickman has implemented ecommerce, mobile payments, pre-paid, electronic check and fraud prevention strategies for clients ranging in size from small businesses to Fortune 500. Rickman also ran his own business, where he learned first hand the unique challenges facing small business owners on a daily basis.
“I am excited to use this experience supporting clients facing the same issues I had. Bill.com is the perfect solution for geographically dispersed businesses such as franchises, and I look forward to helping the Bill.com franchise community build more efficient and effective businesses faster than ever,” William Rickman, Bill.com Director of Business Development for the Franchise Market, said.
