Bill.com announced today its new, "next-generation" banking platform that works to return banks to their role as "the focal point of all their customer's transactions."

The new platform is geared toward solving two specific problems for banks and their clients: monetizing cash management and helping small and medium-sized business integrate and automate their financial processes.

Among the key new features of the platform is the App Center. This resource makes it easier for businesses to tap into and integrate a variety of third party applications. These apps include everything from document digitization and expense reporting solutions to major accounting systems like Sage, Xero, and QuickBooks. The ability to connect multiple third party apps and integrate them via the App Center enables banks to offer a number of cash flow management solutions to their business clients.

Improving communication via configurable notifications is another goal of the new platform. Being able to set-up and control the kind of information and approvals that are issued on an account-to-account basis means better, more personalized and efficient service for businesses. And for banks? Said Bill.com founder and CEO René Lacerte, "The more banks can offer their customers to make their lives easier, the more loyal and happy their customers will be."

Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, Bill.com has been a Finovate alum since 2010, and last demoed as part of the FinovateSpring 2011 show.

Bill.com announced today that it has brought two-factor authentication to customers using its Bill.com Banking Platform. The company is an innovator in the field of integrating bill pay, custom invoicing, and cash flow management for small and medium-sized businesses.

Available for banks and built into the platform for small businesses, the technology is compatible with existing authentication methods, and can be readily integrated. Said CEO Rene Lacerte, "banks can offer small businesses one more reason to trust all of their business needs to one bank."

Bill.com stresses the unobtrusive nature of their authentication solution. The technology uses a risk-based model to monitor all activity and determine when a request for further authentication from the user should be made. This, according to Bill.com, helps prevent workflow interruptions that can take place when authentication processes are triggered whenever any change is made.

Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Palo Alto, California, Bill.com won Gold at the 2013 PYMNTS.com Innovator Awards in the "Best Innovation via ACH" category. The company recently announced that it had converted more than 40% of its customers from checks to electronic ACH transactions.

Bill.com presented its technology as part of the FinovateSpring 2011 show in San Francisco. See the company's demo here.

Last week, Bill.com launched a new dashboard that serves as a cash-flow predictor to help businesses improve their cash-flow over time.

American Banker reports

"The new feature is called CashView and it provides a snapshot of due bills and pending payments up to six weeks out, along with on-screen functional links that allow businesses to respond to future cash positions."

CashView combines accounts payable, accounts receivable, and due date information to test what-if scenarios and graphically depict a user's cash flow position.
