and Expand Accountant Partner Program and have expanded their Accountant Partner Program. The program offers services, resources and technology to help accounting firms solve bill payment challenges for their clients.

The program has been updated to offer services tailored to the needs of large firms. Enhancements include dedicated implementers for client portfolios, educational and training resources, and accountant-specific features.

The upgrades come in response to a 2017 Bill Payment Trends Survey from and, which found 77 percent of large accounting firms wish their clients would eliminate paper checks, 75 percent recommend their clients pay their bills online, yet only 25 percent require clients to use a specific solution for digital bill payment. According to, this disconnect illustrates an opportunity for client accounting services to be more efficient and demonstrate more value to clients.

The Accountant Partner Program now offers:

● Dedicated implementation consulting and support for client adoption, including implementers experienced with bill payment in large accounting firms; and

● New features for the Accountant Console, a portal that helps firms manage client bill payments. Firms can add and remove staff from multiple clients at once, assign customer roles and permissions, and create reports on billing and system access.

These additions join existing educational resources already offers to small and midsize accounting firms.

“The enhanced Accountant Partner Program allows greater collaboration between,, and accounting firms at every stage of client accounting services,” said Michael Cerami,’s vice president of strategic alliances and business development, in a statement. “Whether a firm is targeting prospective or existing clients, the program delivers the tools and resources necessary for firm-wide adoption of digital bill payments.”
