PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/13 -- Bill.com, the leader in integrated bill payment, invoicing and cash flow management solutions for businesses, today announced that its unique customizable entitlements are empowering banks to offer small businesses unprecedented security and control. Businesses can finally define the roles and permissions that govern who has access to specific information and functions in their organizations, rather than simply assign roles within the confines of systems built with consumers rather than businesses in mind.

"This is a totally new way of looking at entitlements. A bank can offer small business owners a way to delegate cash flow management functions at a more granular level," said Donna Arce, Managing Director of the Business Internet Banking Program, Barlow Research. "Offering a wide range of entitlement capabilities not only provides for tighter levels of control, it empowers the customer to manage their finances in a way that works best for them and their business."

As opposed to other entitlement solutions, which just support entitlements around payments, the Bill.com entitlement solution can be built around all business objects, serving a business's entire workflow. Entitlements can be defined around specific business objects such as customers, vendors, invoices, payments, or documents. Businesses can determine which employees have access to specific types of objects, tailoring the system to the business's unique processes.

In stark contrast to many online banking solutions, which are still based on consumer platforms that have no entitlements at all, and other business-oriented solutions, which only address payables in a rudimentary manner, Bill.com allows for complete segregation of duties, empowering businesses to create entitlements that work for their specific needs.

"Without customized entitlements that address a company's entire workflow, the power and efficiency of the cloud is simply lost in the same inefficiencies and roadblocks of in-person approvals," said René Lacerte, founder and CEO, Bill.com. "We are pleased to bring banks another way to make small businesses' lives easier by making online banking solutions more powerful -- and tailored to businesses rather than consumers -- than ever before."

The Bill.com entitlement feature is currently available for all banks and is already built into the Bill.com solution for small businesses and accountants. For more information, please visit http://www.bill.com/for-banks.
