Here's what BILL customers are saying:
Becker’s Best Shoes
“Before BILL, we were handwriting checks, stamping them, mailing them, everything. Now we can stay on top of vendor payments. One of the things I love about BILL is when people are getting paid, it does not give them our banking information. That really has made payments—and my vacations—less stressful. BILL allows us more flexibility to handle other projects, besides billing and invoicing. It allows us to keep our motto: ‘Always do your Becker’s Best,’” said Amy Becker, Owner of Becker’s Best Shoes.
Ascent Respiratory Care
"BILL has saved us accounting time—tasks that took an hour now take maybe 10 minutes because it's all right there in BILL. BILL has just made our work life so much better and given us so much more transparency into our billing and purchasing. I'm thrilled with BILL’s products. With both the tangible and intangible benefits BILL has given us, it's more than worth its price,” said Heather Thompson, Senior Business Development Associate of Ascent Respiratory Care.
“I would like to see every nonprofit in America partnering with BILL. BILL can help nonprofits run highly efficient financial operations, while also improving accuracy and accountability," said Brian Basinger, Founder and Executive Director of Q Foundation, a city housing needs and rent relief platform.
