Business payments network Bill.com has updated the news regarding the $100 million in funding it landed last month. The round was lead by JPMorgan Chase and Temasek, with participation from lead investors in each of Bill.com’s earlier funding rounds. The financing doubles the company’s previous funding total to $200 million.
In a blog post titled Funding for a Better Future in Digital Payments, Bill.com CEO René Lacerte said the company plans to do “what no other fintech company has been able to do before: eliminate checks and paper from the business operating manual.” Lacerte continued, “With this additional capital, we will cross the chasm shifting digital payments from early adoption to major, widespread market acceptance.”
Bill.com was founded in 2006 to help businesses manage accounts payables and receivables with online billpay, custom invoicing, document storage, collaboration tools, and more. Today, the company remains focused on digital, paperless payment options and offers the largest business payment network in the U.S. Bill.com’s 2.5 million members account for more than 1% of all U.S. businesses and process more than $50 billion in payments each year. The company has 100,000 customers and is partnered with four of the top 10 U.S. banks and with more than half of the top 100 accounting firms.
Bill.com’s Lacerte debuted the company’s CashView tools at FinovateSpring 2012. Last month, the company won the Accountex User Favorite Award in the Bill Pay Solution category. Most recently, Bill.com announced a partnership with JP Morgan Chase in which it will help Chase’s business customers manage their cash flow.
