I am researching AP automation. Are there alternatives to BillZap? How does BillZap stack up?

For first time buyers researching this industry, you can roughly segment accounts payable solutions into two groups: (1) AP Tools, and (2) AP Services.

AP Tools are standalone solutions that can accomplish a specific task, such as scanning documents, extracting data, storing data, or executing payments. These tools require industry and technical expertise to design new processes, and install and maintain the system. Other than Fortune 1000 companies, few businesses have the time and resources required to research, select, install and maintain several tools to automate bill processing.

AP Services are solutions like BillZap. There are a handful of companies that compete in this space. What sets BillZap apart is that we are lightweight, low cost solution. We are not the clunky, complex enterprise systems you have experienced in the past. We are designed for small and medium size businesses that want 100% end-to-end automation but cannot afford to spend $20,000 upfront on software. BillZap is a single, easy to use solution that requires no budget. With our flat, transaction-based pricing structure, you can start Zaping your paper bills, reducing costs, and streamlining your back-office from day one.

What is the BillZap Supplier Network?

The BillZap Supplier Network connects you with your suppliers (the businesses you pay) to streamline communication and collaboration. We avoid the challenges of point-to-point connections and manual processes by providing a centralized platform for you to exchange data with suppliers quickly and easily. Suppliers love using BillZap to gain insight into their invoice and payment status in real-time.

How secure is the BillZap Supplier Network?

The BillZap Supplier Network was designed with security in mind. All communications on the BillZap Supplier Network use HTTPS (Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol), which is the standard for secure Internet communication. HTTPS uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer), which incorporates RSA’s highly regarded encryption system.
