BPAY Group announces its latest innovation to support small businesses: paying multiple suppliers through BPAY BatchMaker

As part of BPAY Group’s growing portfolio of developing innovative products for the Australian market that solve customer pain points, BPAY BatchMaker helps makes it easier for small businesses to pay multiple bills and create efficiencies by reducing manual processing.

BPAY BatchMaker’s first partner is QuickBooks, the global leader in cloud accounting, with 2.8 million subscribers worldwide. The BPAY BatchMaker app is now available to QuickBooks customers, free of charge*, via the QuickBooks app store

The new application is an easy and convenient way to:
  • Capture invoice data
  • Instantly validate BPAY payment information avoiding errors later on
  • Create BPAY and EFT batch files in the right format, for customers to send on to their bank for processing#
  • Match invoices with existing suppliers allowing for easy reconciliation

QuickBooks customers can use the BPAY BatchMaker app with their cloud accounting package. It is available for BPAY Batch payers who bank with Bankwest, Commonwealth Bank, Macquarie Bank, NAB or Westpac. Future releases of BPAY BatchMaker are expected to add other financial institutions and functionality.

“BPAY BatchMaker has the ability to solve numerous pain points for small businesses, accountants, and accounts payable. This is key to our strategy to innovate around the BPAY product and continually improve the experience for consumers, SMEs and business,” says Keith Brown, General Manager, Product Scheme and Business Development at BPAY Group.

“We are proud to partner with QuickBooks, pioneering a collaborative approach to product innovation, with the central aim of reducing inefficiencies and helping to increase financial capabilities for small businesses.”
