Expense management and software-enabled corporate card will support CPA firms in delivering next-level client advisory services (CAS)
SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 8, 2022 – Bill.com (NYSE: BILL), a leading provider of cloud-based software that simplifies, digitizes, and automates complex back-office financial operations for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), announced today that Divvy, a Bill.com company, has been named CPA.com’s new exclusive partner for expense management, corporate cards*, and spend management. This move expands the partnership between CPA.com and Bill.com, CPA.com’s exclusive partner for bill management since 2008, and replaces the previous expense management solution with a new offering that will unite all bill payments, expense management and card spending in one comprehensive solution. A key strategy in supporting CPA.com’s updated client advisory services (CAS) 2.0 framework, firms can now have the technology tools to provide more strategic counsel for clients.
"We're excited to build on our partnership with CPA.com, as we continue to deliver on our vision of an all-in-one financial operations solution for customers,” said René Lacerte, CEO and Founder at Bill.com. “The powerful combination of Divvy and Bill.com provides businesses with the ability to see 100% of their B2B spend, giving accounting firms a tremendous advantage to level up their advisory services and provide more value to their clients."
According to CPA.com’s recent CAS Benchmark Survey, CAS is the fastest growing practice area for accounting firms. To help firms keep pace with demand and realize the full potential of CAS, CPA.com recently introduced CAS 2.0 for business transformation and change management, providing firms with a more holistic vision and approach to drive firmwide adoption of CAS.
“As CAS continues to grow, becoming a more critical part of firms’ offerings, they need a comprehensive technology solution that provides their clients greater access to business credit, increased control over spending and a real-time view of their finances,” said Erik Asgeirsson, President and CEO of CPA.com, the technology business subsidiary of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). “Bill.com’s Divvy Accountant Advisor Program, in partnership with CPA.com, empowers accounting firms with an integrated software solution and corporate card for their CAS clients, allowing them to deliver higher-value advisory services.”

“Divvy puts the power in the business owner’s hands when it comes to managing spend. Especially after the last two years where cash flow was so critical and a remote workforce added layers of complexity, businesses need tools that make it easier for them to operate at their best. Divvy’s spend management solution starts with putting the right controls on budget and expenses in place and makes it simple to onboard new employees without losing that control. And with the partnership and support that Bill.com and Divvy have always delivered, this is truly a best-in-class solution.” — Nick Pasquarosa, Founder & CEO, Bookkeeper360
