Explore 5 Benefits to Using a Third-Party Company for Bill Payments


As a decision maker for your business, you should consider using a third-party company to take the pressure off of the collective shoulders of your accounts payable and accounts receivable teams. But first, it may help to learn more about some of the benefits your

business will experience.

With so many businesses employing remote workers, cloud-based solutions may make more sense in the long run. Cloud applications are available from any web browser. Employees only need their user id and password to access their work and communicate with coworkers and supervisors.

The following are five ways outsourcing your billing tasks can help your organization:

1. Automated Processes Allow for Seamless Integration

A third-party billing service acts as a tool that automates accounts receivable and accounts

payable processes to make bill payments and approvals faster and easier. These services

serve as a central hub that manages invoices and bills for businesses of all sizes.

2. More Payment Options Are Available to Accounting Teams

Companies that invest in third-party billing services have more options available for

sending and receiving payments. While most businesses ordinarily have options for paying

via credit card or ACH, billing services open up the possibilities with customized choices

that might include the following:

• Digital payment options, such as PayPal, Square, and Stripe

• Flint payment options, which use a mobile app to scan a credit card number

• ProPay options that feature solutions such as credit card readers for smartphones and


3. Invoicing Becomes Instant and Simple


A billing service allows you to do all your invoicing through one comprehensive service.

After you send an invoice, the third-party provider, such as, adjusts your accounts

receivables accordingly.



4. The Approval Process Becomes Quicker and Easier



Billing services allow you to configure multiple approvals for bills, which then enable a

system of checks and balances to ensure that the same person who codes the bills doesn’t

pay them.



5. Stacks of Invoices Quickly Shrink to Save Paper and Physical Space



The number of invoices that come into an office can seem overwhelming on multiple levels.

Everything from manually opening each piece of mail and inspecting the documents to

filing stubs once payments are complete depletes your resources, both human and

otherwise. When you migrate bill payments to online resources, you save time, effort, and

space for your accounting team.
