Bill.com announced today it will offer a new application platform, which will extend its integration beyond accounting software to business applications. Bill.com partnered with OneSaas for the first set of integrations on the new open APIs. Bill.com offers integrated bill payment, invoicing and cash management solutions for businesses and accountants.
“We are thrilled that Bill.com has partnered with OneSaas to be the first company to complete an integration with the new Bill.com platform,” said Jeff Perlman, CEO, OneSaas, which also launched the recently announced Xero and Bill.com integration last month. “By establishing a robust integration between Bill.com and our multi-point service, we can now bring several new business applications to financial professionals seamlessly embedded into Bill.com interface.”
Bill.com’s new platform offers open APIs for developers to integrate applications with Bill.com, giving users a complete view of all of their business processes at work within the company. This new integration is designed to help business owners identify and quickly resolve data discrepancies based on real-time data. For the first time ever, users can use one platform for access to their CRM management data, invoices, bill payment, expense reporting and other business processes.
“Bill.com has had remarkable success uniting disparate accounting systems, finally freeing finance professionals from the old manual, error-prone ways of managing finances,” said René Lacerte, Founder and CEO, Bill.com. “Now, we are taking things a step further and extending our platform beyond accounting software, validating how pivotal our customers are to all the business processes happening at their companies. We look forward to seeing the amazing integrations developers will create and to building a thriving ecosystem around the Bill.com platform.”
Bill.com not only offers its customers tools to manage their cash flow, it also provides a comprehensive view of their cash forecast, connecting users’ bank accounts, bookkeeping and business process. The new Bill.com platform features a business API, sync API and service API. The open APIs allow customers to connect their business processes in one platform, while benefiting from direct integration and synchronization across their accounting and business solutions. As more solutions integrate with Bill.com, financial managers will have a more global view of what’s going on within the business regardless of what solution is used to manage the data.
“Our focus is to be the one-stop solution where businesses manage their cash,” said Lacerte. “We want to help customers manage their businesses in a simple way. This platform enables us to extend how we serve our customers because developers can integrate with our platform to use the necessary data in their own applications.”
A free kit is available for download to help developers write to the Bill.com platform using the JSON data model.
