Bill.com and Tallie Team Up to Unify and Simplify Expense Reporting and Financial Management
by Terri Eyden on
Bill.com  and SpringAhead announced they have integrated Tallie , SpringAhead's expense report software, in the new Bill.com App Center , which launched September 16, 2013. The combination of these two market-leading SaaS solutions finally unites bill payment and expense reporting automation, two functions essential to financial management. Never before have bill payment and expense report systems been so deeply integrated. Now, by bringing payables, receivables, and expense reporting together, finance professionals will have a clearer view - and better control - of their cash flow than ever before possible.
"If you're looking for a good first step to move to the Cloud, Bill.com is your product. It dramatically improves your processes and tightens security for your cash management. And the perfect next step is to implement the Tallie expense management solution," said Doug Sleeter, president, The Sleeter Group. "The combination of Tallie and Bill.com makes the whole expense management process smooth, secure, paperless and efficient."
Tallie intelligently scans, categorizes, and matches receipt and credit card data, automating the expense report workflow for employees and managers alike. Together, Tallie and Bill.com can for the first time synchronize all critical data, such as general ledger accounts, vendors, and items. Completed expense reports sent from Tallie are generated as bills automatically in the Bill.com account, with all receipt images attached and no data entry required. The combined solution also adds another layer of convenience to expense management, as all the data synced by Tallie will also sync to all the accounting systems supported by Bill.com, including QuickBooks, Intacct, NetSuite, and Xero. Both solutions also employ best-of-breed fraud protection controls offering full compliance, internal controls, full audit trails, and business intelligence.
"By integrating Bill.com and Tallie, expense reporting is finally a natural part of an entire financial management solution, rather than a cumbersome add-on process," said Dawn Brolin, chief operation officer, BMRG. "Using Bill.com and Tallie together via the simple to use Bill.com interface is saving my team so much time and effort. I am really excited that Bill.com is bringing the same magic they brought to solving age-old financial processes problems to simplifying and automating even more global business processes."

The first phase of the App Center will feature deep integration with a select group of best-of-breed solutions, which have been highly requested by existing customers and prospects. Deep integration means that the solution meets specific customer workflows, is integrated to the point that set-up is easy enough to be self-serve, and allows for easy, immediate data conflict resolution. Bill.com has led the industry by making it possible for SMBs to manage end-to-end financial processes with seamless accounting software sync. Now, the company continues to set the bar for innovation with deep business process integrations.

The combination of Bill.com and Tallie is the expense reporting 'killer app' that finance professionals have long searched for."
