Hamilton, NJ-(March 15, 2016)- Invoice Central has announced that it has become a Better Business Bureau (BBB) Accredited Business, confirming the B2B billing and payments network meets the BBB’s rigorous and objective standards for ethics.

In making today’s announcement, Paul Harrison, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Invoice Central, explained, “Our approval as a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business is a validation of our ethical business practices with our vendors and their customers. Thousands of businesses we serve–electrical, plumbing and HVAC contractors, building supply and construction companies–are BBB Accredited Businesses. They derive great benefit as the BBB affirms their integrity in dealing with the public. We felt a responsibility to join them in accreditation by this great organization. We are committed to living up to the high standards they have set. Earning and maintaining the trust of business partners is essential to everything we do. We are very pleased to become accredited by the Better Business Bureau and affirm our commitment to honesty and integrity.”

Explaining BBB Accreditation, Melissa Companick, President and CEO of Better Business Bureau Serving New Jersey, “BBB Accreditation is an honor – and not every business is eligible. Businesses that meet our high standards are invited to join BBB. Businesses deemed to meet Accreditation Standards are presented to the BBB’s Board for review and acceptance as a BBB Accredited Business. All BBB Accredited Businesses have agreed to live up to our Standards for Trust, a comprehensive set of best practices for how businesses should treat the public in a fair and honest manner. BBB evaluates businesses against our standards – and our standards clearly speak to the character and competence of an organization.”

For more than 100 years, the nonprofit Better Business Bureau has been helping people find businesses, brands and charities they can trust. Each year, people turned to BBB more than 165 million times for BBB Business Reviews on more than 4.7 million businesses and Charity Reports on 11,000 charities, all available for free at bbb.org.

Consumers have had access to time and money-saving bill aggregation sites for a number of years: Instead of writing individual checks to pay their bills, consumers can log in to a single website -? a bill aggregator -? and pay their bills online, taking advantage of a simpler, more convenient process. But until recently, small business owners who prefer to handle invoice receipt and bill paying online had to log onto multiple vendor sites -? each with its own platform and log-in protocol -? to receive and pay business invoices electronically. That all changed in 2012 when billing and payment industry leader Billtrust launched Invoice Central, an open business invoice network that gives companies a way to consolidate invoice receipt, payment processing and tracking on one user-friendly portal.
