Durham, NC and Palo Alto, CA (PRESS RELEASE – September 11, 2009) – Shoeboxed, the leader in online receipt and business card management, and Bill.com, the online bill management and payment leader, have partnered to enable small business owners to focus more on their core businesses and less on administrative hassles.
Companies can now mail their invoices to Shoeboxed for scanning into the Bill.com system rather than scanning the invoices themselves. This approach saves time while ensuring that invoices are digitally stored for easy reference and security. Companies can also mail receipts and business cards to Shoeboxed, and access those documents from Bill.com or their Shoeboxed account. Once an invoice is scanned into the Bill.com system it is immediately available in a user’s Bill.com Inbox and can be routed for review internally or to an external accountant. Companies or their accountants can then pay vendors from any US bank account via check or ePayment, and payments are synchronized with their accounting systems.
Customers of Shoeboxed and Bill.com can start using the integrated solution at no additional cost from either service. Bill.com customers who do not currently have a Shoeboxed account can try the integrated service free for 30 days, after which the service is being offered at an introductory price of $8.99 per month for up to 50 documents per month. Current Shoeboxed customers can open a Bill.com account and use this feature without requiring an upgrade to their Shoeboxed account.
“Both Shoeboxed and Bill.com want to help offices go paperless, so the partnership makes a lot of sense,” said Taylor Mingos, CEO and Founder of Shoeboxed. “Together we can provide an even better solution for small businesses and give them more time to focus on growing their business.”
“Bill.com is focused on streamlining the hugely inefficient bill management and bill payment process for small and mid size businesses and the accountants that serve them,” said RenÃ© Lacerte, CEO and Founder of Bill.com. “We have made tremendous progress on streamlining the management and payment of bills. Our new partnership with Shoeboxed will drive even more efficiencies at the start of that process, and ultimately allow businesses to eliminate one of the remaining headaches with going paperless.”
