Acquisition Further Expands Global Reach for AR Automation and B2B Integrated Payments Leader
Billtrust, a B2B accounts receivable (AR) automation and integrated payments leader, announced it has acquired Netherlands-based Order2Cash, a leading B2B order-to-cash platform provider. The acquisition follows the October 2021 purchase of iController, broadening the company’s European footprint, global presence and ability to expand its innovative Business Payments Network (BPN).
“This strategic acquisition aligns perfectly with our growth plan of expanding globally with companies that offer complementary expertise, shared values and local market presence. Our EU team now exceeds 100 members, serving more than 700 customers, and is accelerating our global expansion.”
For over 20 years, each company has pursued a similar vision to streamline and accelerate B2B payments for its customers. Now, those customers will gain access to a broader platform of SaaS modules and a global B2B payments network at a time when it is critical to digitally transform accounts receivable to maximize cash flow. Order2Cash’s enterprise customer base, global interoperability capabilities and established connections to over 70 B2B and B2G e-invoicing networks will broaden BPN’s reach to deliver fully compliant and secure e-invoicing across multiple markets. As an open network supporting buyers and suppliers, allowing both accounts payable and accounts receivable platforms to exchange invoices, payments and remittance data, BPN delivers invoices to over 170 leading accounts payable (AP) portals.
