“We are thrilled to welcome the Divvy team to Bill.com,” said René Lacerte, Bill.com CEO and Founder. “Together, we can help SMBs manage all their B2B spend and workflow with one simple solution, saving them valuable time and money and providing real-time insight into their spend and cash flow. With the elegant spend management solution that the Divvy team brings, their dedication to serving SMBs, and their passion for driving innovation, together we can accelerate our vision to help SMBs transform, grow, and thrive by automating their financial operations.”
“We are excited to join Bill.com and offer our customers and millions of businesses a comprehensive payments solution that saves them time and money,” said Blake Murray, Divvy CEO and Co-Founder. “We have a shared vision to be the one-stop shop for credit and financial software. Together we achieve that vision faster and are better able to serve business owners and finance leaders.”
The acquisition of Divvy supports Bill.com’s mission to make it simple to connect and do business. The expanded solution will enable businesses to digitally transform their financial operations and automatically manage accounts payable, accounts receivable, and corporate card spend all in one place. With real-time insight into all their B2B spending and access to multiple payment solutions, businesses will be empowered to spend smarter, better manage their budgets and cash flow, and simplify their back-office financial operations.
"We see the combination of Bill.com and Divvy as potentially very valuable to small and mid-sized businesses because it creates a single software company focused on helping them to manage, track and control all their business to business spending versus them having to stitch together a number of point solutions." -- Kevin Permenter, Research Manager at IDC
“Bill.com and Divvy are both really easy to use and tailor-made for small businesses. I'm excited that two tools that I love are coming together.” -- Nik Hurley, Finance Manager, Bloom Credit
“Bill.com and Divvy have both played a huge role in transforming our office operations while also significantly impacting our employee culture. Being a distributed workforce across multiple cities and countries, we needed digital solutions that supported our critical back-end functions while also supporting employee perks with the benefits of fund allocations. I’m excited to see this acquisition as Bill.com builds an all-in-one financial shop, creating a streamlined solution to manage financial workflows and transactions. If it isn’t already, Bill.com should be a part of every B2B business’ tech stack both for finance and operations.” -- Jim Benton, CEO, Chorus.ai
“A key benefit of both products is our ability to have a controlled budget in one place. The result? It saves room in my head and leaves more time for compliance, timelines, and production schedules.” -- Hunter Thompson, Head of Operations at Golden Ratio
“The Bill.com Divvy acquisition is the first time that two really solid products are coming together -- the combination has the potential to be industry changing.” -- Dan Luthi, COO, Ignite Spot Accounting

EisnerAmper’s value proposition is focused on providing efficiency and value to our clients, so they can focus on their business. The brand and quality of service that Bill.com delivers combined with a great spend management product like Divvy will help us automate the flow of bills and expenses into one.” -- John DeLalio, Managing Director, EisnerAmper
