BILL offers software that helps businesses manage their accounts payable and accounts receivable. But many companies find that the software can't keep up with their needs as they grow, especially in areas like expense management and procurement. Is BILL the right tool for your business? We did the research to help you understand the following alternatives.

Ramp

Here at Ramp, we offer an all-in-one finance automation platform, so we are admittedly biased toward the strengths of Ramp versus BILL. That's because our suite of tools helps finance teams consolidate data and workflows across all their core responsibilities—vendor payments and billing, corporate cards, spend management, and employee reimbursements. More than 1,700 reviews on G2 have given Ramp a 4.8 out of 5-star rating. 

Key features

  • Single platform for consolidated data and workflows between accounts payable (AP), expense management, procurement, accounting, and more.
  • One-step bill import and 99% accurate AI matching for every invoice line item
  • Free bill pay, with the ability to schedule payments and use physical and virtual corporate cards, ACH, checks, and international wire transfers
  • Automatic bill routing for approvals, plus easy approvals in Slack and by email
  • Auto-coding of bills as liabilities plus accounting integrations with ERP and HRIS.

Why customers choose Ramp over BILL

  • Pay more bills for free. Let as many of your finance team members as needed use our bill pay solution without charge. Ramp doesn’t charge for regular ACH delivery or check payments. Our cashback, savings insights, and negotiators help you keep cash in your accounts for longer.
  • Get a full picture of cashflow. Ramp helps you see all your current liabilities. You can pay everything with any payment method in one place, without having to manually code bills and vendor payments. Our AI will categorize everything for your general ledger. 
  • Automate repetitive AP tasks. Accounting teams save 10 minutes on each bill with Ramp.  It takes one step to import. Our AI recognizes every invoice line item and helps you quickly get bills approved, paid, and reconciled with ease. 

“I spent four hours a month on Expensify, two on Amex, and probably five on BILL. Now I’m in and out of Ramp in five minutes.” - Sam Meek, Founder & CEO, Sandboxx
