Excellent A/P solution for small to medium-sized businesses

2018-04-11

Efficiency, ease of use and remote capabilities related to AP functions

Pros

Incredibly easy to use; I like that it easily syncs to QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online software

Cons

I don't have any complaints about the software. I use it for quite a few accounting clients and have always found that if I run into a snag, the customer support chat team at Bill.com is able to assist me. Admittedly, the issues I've had have all been user errors, rather than shortcomings related to the software.

Bill.com is Great!

2014-12-09

This app syncs with Quickbooks Online seamlessly and gives paperless workflow the internal control it needs.

Pros

Paperless workflow with internal control, ease of use, multiple users

Cons

One way sync on bill payments and pricey with multiple users, worth the cost.

I love Bill.com. It has been vary useful in paying bills and integrating with other software

2017-11-17

Pay my bills and have them direct deposit. Not having to write checks but can still pay bills using checks.

Pros

Integration with Quickbooks online and Xero.

Cons

When integrated with Xero it doesn't always sync right so you have to keep an eye and make sure everything syncs correctly.

Are you still writing paper checks? You need Bill.com

2014-10-16

A company I work for has been issuing paper checks since I began working for them. I use Bill.com in a couple of side ventures and they made it easy to securely go paperless and pay vendors electronically. Recently, we were notified by our bank that fraudulent paper checks had been issued on our account. Fortunately, the fakes were stopped before they cleared, but in viewing them - I realized it was time to push the owner to make the switch to Bill.com. Why? Because in this digital age, all it took was a snapshot the routing, account and signature and a cash-able check was created on blank check stock and the signature digitally applied.

Pros

- Secure - Great user controls -i.e. separation of duties for data entry, approval and release for payment roles - Paperless - invoices can be scanned to a custom Bill.com email address. - Integrates with QuickBooks, Xero, InnAcct

Cons

Definitely usable but not as nimble as QuickBooks Online for applying payments.

Makes using QuickBooks Online easier

2018-12-23

I have a variety of clients and some of them that use QuickBooks Online use bill.com to help process payments to vendors.

Pros

I like the fact that bill.com integrates with QuickBooks Online. I'm a QB ProAdvisor and often times have clients that need a solution to streamline their business processes.

Cons

The pricing initial seems a bit expensive, however if you figure that bill.com could replace an employee or a portion of what an employee would do for you, it's a great value.

I use this with quickbooks online to conveniently pay vendors electronically.

2018-03-19

easily pay and track bills electronically from within quickbooks

Pros

I like that it integrates with quickbooks online and can easily be accessed from within quickbooks.

Cons

When making partial payments, it does not allow you to schedule future payments on the same invoice. However, I brought this to the attention of bill.com support and they are looking into it.

Poor

Pros

I'm reporting them to Quickbooks Online

Cons

I was only researching the software for a client through Quickbooks Online. My client and I decided it was too expensive and there are other payment services that are more effective so we decided to not download the product.

Necessary tool for businesses with a growing accounts payables.

2018-03-24

An important part of transition our accounting department to entirely paperless / online and in the cloud.

Pros

- Integrations with Quickbooks online has always worked perfectly for us.

Cons

- The cost / value scale is right on the border. It seems that you're paying a lot for convenience and some very limited time savings which is always harder to justify than raw ROI.

Exceeds expectations

2018-06-15

Pros

EASY set up and integration with QuickBooks online. Very intuitive UI.

Cons

The add on to automatically enter invoices, while a very big value and totally worth the extra expense, doesn't take into consideration the vendors terms set up in Bill.com. So if you have an invoice from a vendor that says due upon receipt, but the vendor profile in bill.com is Net 30, Bill.com defaults to due on receipt. An override setting would be helpful. Getting vendors set up on ACH/EFT is a little tough for tech challenged folks.

Clean connection, simplifies AP and AR processing

2015-06-18

Bill.com syncs with QuickBooks Online in a very easy, simplified manner.

Pros

The sync by far is the best pro when it comes to this platform, almost seamless.

Cons

It would be nice to have a notification of frequency of syncing, and errors that have come up.

Though a bit pricey , Bill.com offers a unique stand alone , automated website based accounts payable and recievable service and robust options for integration.

2018-05-01

Bill.com is almost peerless as it offers convenient integration with Quickbooks online that we use regularly.

Pros

We absolutely loved the immediate integration with quick books online. Our company found the user interface extremely easy to understand and even easier to use with well written executed menus and graphs. Invoices are easy to compose and customers are afforded the ability to pay online which we found ultra convenient.

Cons

The cost structure we find a bit pricey for the more enterprise orientated company models. As a company wants to integrate with other systems like Intacct or Netsuite, prior membership is required.

Efficient Business Tool

2016-03-22

Pros

Syncs with other software such as Bill.com. Easy to use and to search FAQ/QBO community forums for advice.

Cons

There's no good system in Quickbooks Online for tracking inventory. Also, the sign-in for Quickbooks Online requires authentication each time you sign in (which is frustrating when I have to enter a code every 15 minutes while I'm at work all day).

Recommendations to others considering QuickBooks Online

To evaluate software like this, I would review whether or not the software has the capability to do all the accounting and bookkeeping related functions necessary to run the business. Are there functions the software does not let you perform, so that you need to do it in a separate spreadsheet or workbook?

I have never used another accounting software, but QuickBooks Online does a great job!

2017-06-07

Pros

It's also really useful that I can sync it to Bill.com and directly to my bank so all of those transactions import over automatically.

Cons

There are a few features that QuickBooks Online could benefit from having, such as the ability to mass edit or mass delete transactions.

Great product for any small business, and startup

2018-06-14

Return prices to last years levels, and start dropping the price every year.

Pros

Great integration with bill.com, intuitive interface, and plenty of canned reports.

Cons

Nothing to not like. Except the recent price increase which is exactly the opposite of what online software is supposed to be costing these days. The cost should be going DOWN, not up. As happy as I am, I am now considering other software sources for each of my QB Online Plus Clients.
