SAN MATEO, CA September 12, 2018 – Accrualify, Inc., a procure-to-pay spend management software company, announced today a $3.2 million Series A funding round led by Aligned Partners with participation from previous investors.
This new infusion of capital will be used to fuel growth, expand Accrualify’s technology infrastructure, and produce innovative product enhancements—including further investing in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
“We are at the forefront of a shift in how enterprises are doing business,” said Benjamin Portusach, CEO and Co-Founder of Accrualify. “Our suite of products focus on automating data entry and leveraging machine learning and AI to perform these tasks. We are excited to be able to continue innovating and disrupting enterprise procure-to-pay. “
Accrualify’s suite of products address the high cost to process a single supplier invoice, communication gaps between accounts payable and vendor or non-finance employees, excess manual data input, and a lack of a comprehensive, single source of truth for company spend.
“Most companies are using disparate systems to manage their P2P processes. They may have one system for purchase order management, another for invoice processing, and various loose systems for vendor onboarding,” said Portusach. “There’s no guarantee these systems communicate with each other and may require a data entry component for each. We are changing that, automating many of the processes, and saving corporate accounting teams valuable time.”
“Our technology stack allows us to be agile, disruptive, and innovative,” said Mike Hang, CTO and Co-Founder of Accrualify. “Our ability to apply the latest technology to dated business practices sets us apart. I look forward to being able to continue pushing our technology and the challenges ahead.”
According to Susan Mason, Managing Partner at Aligned Partners, it is currently an innovative atmosphere for business-to-business payments and vendor management. “We’re seeing many technological advancements in the B2B space that provide more efficient payments in a variety of ways. This coupled with the advent of automation in finance organizations made investing in a startup like Accrualify very appealing. Aligned Partners is excited about our investment in Accrualify. The team’s experience in delivering high-value solutions to customers made for a compelling investment opportunity in a large marketspace.”
