The Problem

Companies around the world are feeling the pressure to enhance cash flow, reduce costs and become more environmentally friendly. The process of preparing, printing, mailing and collections associated with traditional paper invoicing and check processing is slow, costly, lacking in accountability and environmentally unfriendly. Accounting software makers generally include a module that allows their customers to create and print invoices for their customers. Now these software companies can partner with Invoice Cloud to enable their customers to move toward the lower cost, cash flow enhancing and environmentally friendly method of electronic invoice presentment and payment (EIPP).

The Invoice Cloud Solution

Invoice Cloud has been formed by senior executives from the electronic payment and information technology industries to provide web based, integrated electronic invoice presentment and payment in partnership with business software companies and their resellers that wish to provide this service to their customers.



Our Mission

Invoice Cloud partners to provide simple, secure web based electronic invoice presentment and payment solutions that reduce costs, speed payments and help the environment.
