Anybill's Automated AP Platform Replaces Dial Global Manual In-House Payment Processes

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - January 25, 2011) -  Anybill, Inc., the leading provider of complete, on-demand AP automation software and the developer of enterprise-scale Critical AP solutions, announced that Dial Global, an independent national full-service radio network company, has selected the Anybill platform to replace its manual in-house payments processes.

"When Dial Global began nine years ago, we had just forty-five employees and I knew every invoice we received and every check that we sent out. Today, we're much larger and far busier. We have more than 450 people on staff, three of whom are dedicated to handling a thousand or more monthly payments that I couldn't possibly keep track of alone," said CFO Hiram Lazar. "Having grown so fast, we found that several of the business processes that served us well early on had become outdated. Accounts Payable was a conspicuous candidate for modernization. Until we selected the Anybill platform late last year, our AP staff and our approving managers used manual, paper-based methods. We needed a dramatic improvement in efficiency," Mr. Lazar notes. 

In mid-2010 Mr. Lazar tasked his Executive Vice President of Finance, Leila Gilbert, to find an efficient, 21st century AP solution. The singular result was Anybill's on-demand automated AP platform. "After examining Anybill's SAS 70, Level II certification and interviewing ten of its clients, we found that no other AP software provider offered the reliability, flexibility and speed delivered by Anybill," said Ms. Gilbert. Chief among Anybill's benefits to Dial Global is that the on-demand AP service now gives fifty invoice approvers -- located in fifteen cities throughout the country -- instant access to any payment data or document they need. Mr. Lazar adds, "This improved access to AP information -- anywhere at any time -- increases our efficiency across the payment spectrum. Not only are we quicker in paying bills since installing the Anybill platform last October, we also find that other AP information users, our auditors for example, and other activities, such as compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley reporting requirements, benefit from the new speed and transparency enabled by Anybill."

"User acceptance is critical to the success of any new system. In addition to our staff giving Anybill software and customer service high marks, our vendors are pleased with improved on-time payments and more rapid availability of funds through Anybill-enabled electronic payments," concludes Lazar.
