SunGard Links to Billtrust’s CompleteBilling Service

SunGard’s AvantGard Receivables (GETPAID) is now linked to the Billtrust CompleteBilling platform to offer joint customers a more streamlined approach to the order-to-cash (O2C) cycle. This offering delivers businesses a solution from invoice creation and delivery to automated credit, collections and dispute resolution to electronic invoice presentment and payment (EIPP), including auto-cash processing.

Corporations are commonly challenged by the high costs, inefficiencies and inaccuracies associated with the billing process. These difficulties can be overcome by leveraging an integrated O2C platform, yet many companies are unable to achieve a straight-through process (STP) due to disparate systems. The connection between AvantGard GETPAID and Billtrust helps mitigate this challenge by providing linkage between their billing service (Billtrust CompleteBilling) directly into their core collections system (AvantGard GETPAID).

With the growth of electronic billing, the linkage with Billtrust’s EIPP portal to AvantGard GETPAID helps accounts receivable (A/R) managers obtain real-time access to important invoice transaction information, including payments made and transactions disputed.

Ray Sims, director of national credit, Roofing Supply Group (RSG), said: “RSG is continually focused on finding new ways of driving improvements in the A/R process. By connecting Billtrust with AvantGard GETPAID, we linked the process of invoice presentment and payment together with collections. This functionality is helping improve productivity rates and helping us deliver enhanced service to our customers. At the end of the day, it is all about efficiency, and that is what this integration provides to our organisation.”
