Continued Product Innovation
Bill.com continues to make significant strides leveraging new technologies to offer its customers.

The business payments network also deepened its integration with Intuit’s QuickBooks via the launch of Bill Pay for QuickBooks Online, allowing small business users to easily make digital payments from within the QuickBooks platform.
