HAMILTON, N.J., Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Billtrust, the leading provider of invoice-to-cash solutions, announced today a formalized partnership with zlien, a technology company that automates the lien process. The two organizations share a common focus on helping businesses get paid faster by improving the performance of the accounts receivable process.
Billtrust automates core areas of the invoice-to-cash process including presentment, payment, and cash application. The zlien platform automates and optimizes the lien and bond claim process. Both organizations play key roles in accelerating the time it takes for a business to get paid.
Tim Drake, VP Credit & Collections at ThyssenKrupp, relies on both Billtrust and zlien. "This is a natural partnership. Both companies do a wonderful job of automating complex processes and the integration brings further efficiencies and visibility to our team."
The zlien solution provides their clients with control over their receivables (and bottom line) by enabling them to turn every sale into a secured transaction. The partnership provides an integration that enables shared clients to view invoices hosted by Billtrust within zlien's portal, making it even easier for a business to secure their outstanding payments.
Billtrust's CEO and founder Flint Lane said, "zlien and Billtrust share common values including an unwavering commitment to add value to our clients. There is a natural synergy between our services with one simple outcome – to help businesses get paid faster."
Billtrust and zlien will begin cooperative marketing and education efforts in February. Plans include a joint webinar on February 10 to educate Billtrust clients to the capabilities of zlien. Further, zlien is a sponsor of Billtrust's annual client conference, "Billtrust CONNECT 2015", taking place in Orlando in late February.
