At the AICPA ENGAGE event Monday, Expensify and Bill.com said they have redesigned their integration for more seamless connectivity with accounting firms and small businesses. They are enabling document sync between their prospective platforms and ERP systems, they noted, and integrates CPA.com as another partner. CPA.com is the subsidiary of the American Institute of CPAs.
“CPAs and their clients want to leverage leading accounting technologies that work well together,” said CPA.com President and CEO Erik Asgeirsson in a statement. ”Whenever possible, we look to influence our partners to prioritize and improve integration. This is a great example of how we can work together with our strategic partners to drive value for the profession.”
In another statement, Expensify CEO David Barrett said a redesign was necessary to keep up with the evolution the company experienced since it first struck a deal with Bill.com in 2013.
”The partnership is not only an opportunity to improve our integration for accounting firms and SMBs, but it’s also a chance for us to partner with both CPA.com and Bill.com to push the accounting profession in new directions by combining advanced technology with educational resources around best practices,” he said. “This investment gives accountants a big advantage as they deepen their advisory role with clients.”
