    Blinksale is perfect for any small business. Having multiple ventures myself, I use Blinksale for each of them and I have never had an issue.

    Tipalti

    Tipalti is well suited for companies that are scaling their finance department and implementing a new ERP, such as NetSuite. The jump from Quickbooks to NetSuite is a pivotal time during a young company's growth, Tipalti can and will ease the process and enable resources to be spent in more important areas versus applying hours figuring out a complicated AP process. With that, I don't believe Tipalti is suited for a company that is in the very early seed stage and only has a few vendors. Tipalti is a great partner to help the scalability of finance, so if you're not ready, then I believe you do not need Tipalti at that time.

    Tipalti

    • Tipalti simplifies the vendor payment process on our end. We send one wire to Tipalti and they send out from there based on the vendor registration, instead of our AP having to manage and process multiple types of payments.
    • Tipalti enhances the security around payment details and vendor registrations. It's critical nowadays to protect banking details, and Tipalti puts the onus on the vendor to manage and secure their details instead of us bearing the burden for managing their remittance.
    • Tipalti simplifies the bill processing time and effort. Our AP can go into the bills pending review and simply go down the list for final touches and send for approval, rather than having to go gather from various emails/locations and do the entire process by hand.

    Tipalti

    • Tipalti could provide more tax knowledge and guidance on their website. They do have information on their website and offer training. However, it would be helpful if they provide more guidance on the tax impact of their services.
    • Their support team is quite responsive and always helpful. However, they do need to research issues from time to time. Thus, if they had an FAQ section on their site or sent out a list of common questions, that would be helpful.
    • Tipalti does do a solid job of communicating changes - if they can provide more of a roadmap of future changes, that would be helpful.

      Blinksale

      I'm giving Blinksale a 10 because it really is a perfect invoicing app. Sure, there are things that can be grown, but comparative to other invoicing apps I've used, Blinksale is lights-out. There isn't a small business owner that doesn't need to try out Blinksale for invoicing.

      Tipalti

      We have always found Tipalti very easy to use and the interface is very clean and straightforward. I particularly like how easy it is to create reports based on different criteria and download them. I gave 9 points only because the services of Tipalti that are embedded in our own platform, like tax forms are sometimes a bit complicated to our users.

      Great customer service! They do their absolute best when trying to resolve issues that arise. Though there are times where some issues do take more time to resolve than others and we'll have to come up with a workaround on our own. Overall, they are very quick in response times usually within the same day or a couple days at most.

      Alternatives Considered

      Blinksale

      After evaluating and using several invoicing applications, I landed on Blinksale. They just fit my needs perfectly as a small business owner. The app is brilliantly designed, easy to navigate, painless, and makes invoices look great to clients. Tracking invoices and getting paid inside Blinksale are a breeze. On top of that, their unlimited plan for $15 a month is a steal for the product they are offering.

      We looked at Payoneer and AFEX. AFEX was more focused on foreign currency and is able to distribute payments faster because of a broad network of financial institutions around the world. However, they do not have any compliance regarding foreign payments. Payoneer looked like a leader in the space, but they did not offer the comprehensive payment methods, particularly related to foreign currency that Tipalti did when we did our search three years ago.

      Return on Investment

      • Client Payment Tracking
      • Stress-Relief from invoicing and quoting

      Tipalti

      • Before implementing Tipalti, it took an employee several hours to process each of the four payment methods we offered, and collecting and updating both tax info and payment details was an ongoing task. Now, we no longer have to spend time on tax info or payment details and processing payments for all of our payment methods takes less than an hour.
      • The ease of processing payments with Tipalti allowed us to greatly increase the number of payments we could process. Due to this, we were able to lower our payment threshold for our publishers which was extremely well received, especially our smaller publishers.
