Announcing The Anybill Vendor Portal

The typical vendor relationship is simply transactional in nature: the vendor provides a good or service, and the customer pays. But as anyone who has managed long term vendor-customer relationships knows, the most valuable ones are built on trust, collaboration, and respect - foundations that can only be set over time with mutual cooperation. These relationships become alliances in which everyone prospers.

Strengthening that relationship - and providing immediate, tangible benefits along the way - was our motivation when building Anybill's vendor portal, a tool that now allows our clients to provide improved invoicing power and visibility to their vendors. 

Our users now have the ability to invite their vendors directly to the vendor portal via email. Vendors will now be able to directly submit bills online in a matter of minutes, giving them better control over invoice submission.

Once the vendor submits a bill, it is automatically routed through their customer's pre-determined approval process. As the bill goes through approval to payment, vendors can login at any time to check on the status of their bills. This eliminates the need for follow-up, saving time for both the vendor and the customer.

The vendor portal allows customers and vendors to focus on business, not bills. Greater visibility and improved efficiency can serve to further solidify and encourage strong, mutually beneficial relationships between vendor and customer. If you're an Anybill user interested in inviting your vendors to the vendor portal, you can view instructions on sending invites in the Training section of Anybill or contact us at

SMBs are Embracing the Cloud

The cloud. You've probably heard the buzz about it and you might already be using it if you use social networking sites or online storage.  It plays a key part in our lives today and is changing business processes.

The cloud has played a significant role in the world of accounts payable automation, in particular paving the way for small to medium sized businesses to take advantage of it.  In the past, AP automation was limited to large enterprise companies who had the human and capital resources to implement this type of technology.  

Today, the flexibility of the cloud makes it a perfect fit for SMBs since it involves no excessive set up, infrastructure, storage, or ongoing maintenance costs. The ease-of-use, reduced costs, and scalability of the cloud are driving the SMB market to adopt AP automation.

SMBs interested in winning the game this year and beyond will gain quantifiable advantages through the adoption of AP automation.

To learn more about how SMBs are adopting AP automation, check out our new article here.
