"We are excited to partner with Billtrust's entire team in creating an enduring leader in the B2B payment cycle management sector. We see a clear long term secular shift towards process automation software as a strong tailwind for Billtrust to continue delivering on its mission of improving outcomes for AR departments."

With this funding, Mr. Alvarez-Demalde will join the Billtrust board of directors.
