Biller Genie, a Miami, FL-based AR automation and B2B payments platform, announced that it raised $5 million in a Series A funding round led by Henry Helgeson, former CEO & Founder of Cayan, bringing Biller Genie's external funding to $9.5 million.
Biller Genie will use the funds to further product expansion, automate onboarding, expand distribution channels, and develop new tools, including APIs so its partners can embed the platform directly into their technology.
With this new funding, Biller Genie will further expand distribution with new integrations to ERPs, independent software vendors (ISVs), and CRMs. Today, subscribers on the Biller Genie platform see cash flow improvement of 14 days and a reduction in overdue invoices by as much as 40% in 90 days, not to mention the cost savings on administrative time caused by eliminating manual data entry.
Biller Genie will also be using the funds to increase its headcount to satisfy the immense growth and a variety of open positions with expectations for continued and immediate growth opportunities.
"We are very excited to welcome Henry [Helgeson] to our Board of Directors," says Thomas Aronica, Biller Genie's Founder and CEO. "Henry is a distinguished fintech disruptor. He brings 25+ years of industry experience and a sizable network that will accelerate our growth, and well position us as the leader in receivables automation for small and medium size businesses in the U.S."
"This round is incredible validation that we are solving real problems. And this is just the beginning," says Garima Shah, Biller Genie's Co-Founder and President. "By expanding our distribution channels and creating a more integrated experience for our partners and subscribers, we are committed to becoming the market leader in AR automation for SMBs."
Henry Helgeson, founder and CEO of Fintech Enterprise Cayan will join the company's Board of Directors and serve as a strategic advisor to its executive team.
