Introducing Payments: Improve your ROI while taking the next step in Autonomous Accounts Payable workflows

Making vendor payments isn’t as simple as just signing a check. Ironically, using paper checks makes payments pretty complicated - cutting checks is time-consuming, requires significant manual effort, and is vulnerable to fraud. This translates to increased costs in labor, processing, and risk of delayed payments. 

Today, with the launch of Payments from, AP processing is about to become more profitable, faster, accurate, and secure for our customers.

We are excited to announce the native integration of Payments to the platform. With this release, now delivers one system to handle all Accounts Payable. This provides AP teams with a single workflow for the entire end-to-end AP cycle from invoice ingestion to payments. When using Payments from, customers can manage all payment types seamlessly: check, ACH, and virtual card. This eliminates the customer’s need to acquire and store sensitive payment information from vendors, but also relieves them from the task of manually cutting and sending checks.

Why we built Payments into the platform

Traditionally, B2B payments are challenging due to complex processes, diverse payment methods, and the need for robust security measures. Key challenges include:

  1. Complex and Lengthy Payment Processes: Many businesses encounter challenges with B2B payment processes, which often involve multiple stakeholders, complex approval workflows, and extensive paperwork. This complexity can lead to delays and errors, impacting cash flow and operational efficiency.
  2. Inefficient and Costly Payment Methods: Traditional payment methods, such as paper checks and manual bank transfers, can be inefficient and costly for businesses. The manual handling of payments may result in errors, reconciliation difficulties, and high transaction fees, adding unnecessary financial burden to the organization.
  3. Lack of Payment Visibility and Security: Businesses often face difficulties in tracking and monitoring B2B payments, leading to a lack of visibility into payment statuses and potential cash flow bottlenecks. Additionally, security concerns regarding data breaches and fraud are prevalent in B2B payments.
