The automatic bill entry is nice.

Overall it is a great program but it would be nice if the reports were a little more customizable. The auto bill entry is kind of expensive as well.

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. Bill payments are automatically posted to quickbooks as paid.

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.

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

2014-10-16

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.

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

Cons

If you use their invoicing feature, the UI for applying manual payments is a little clunky, but they are working on it.

I've been using Bill.com for the last year at my company and love it.

2018-04-26

Pros

I love seeing exactly when an expense report is going to be reimbursed and I love receiving notifications when a payment has been scheduled and when a payment is processing to hit my bank account.

Cons

I haven't experienced any issues with Bill.com or even any minor dislikes because it's always performed to my expectations for my needs, which are pretty simple viewing invoices due to me along with dates and statuses.

No brainer

2014-09-04

The online storage, the easy way to pay bills (& confirmation of paid bill), the seamless sync with accounting software - that's a 3 for 1 deal!

Pros

Ease of use, great way to collaborate, strengthens client/CPA relationship, love the portal and the portability of it.

Cons

Haven't gotten to try the receivables or Tallie side of it yet, reporting function can be a bit more robust, would like to see an audit tail report

I use Bill.com to approve invoices for the AP team and to approve expense reports for my team

2018-07-02

Being able to approve invoices in one location.

Pros

If I only know a little bit about an invoice I'm looking for, I can pretty type anything in and it will find it.

Cons

If I want to pull spend by vendor, I have to ask our Accounting Team to do this instead of just getting it myself which is definitely frustrating.

Streamlines AP to a paperless process

2017-06-28

Time savings Accountability - able to designate approvers for invoices

Pros

Paperless - don't have to print or mail payments or file invoices Can quickly access PDF's of any invoice and all the accounting details

Cons

Syncing to QuickBooks Online has been a little tricky. There's definitely a learning curve to understand the limitations of the sync function and learn how to work around it.
