BILL
Divvy is well suited for almost any organization/business I can think of. If you need to spend money from a specific predetermined budget, Divvy works great. If you have a high volume of transactions and you're fairly decent with excel, you can create an upload file to move transactions into your general ledger (currently only QB is supported for plug ins). If I'm really trying to find a less appropriate example, maybe if you have employees who can have a large credit limit and need to travel a lot, an Amex card might have better benefits.

Zip
Zip can be used for routing all vendor-level approvals for new vendors and all renewals across our organization. It can also be helpful for managing all purchases from existing vendors. For non-spend related approvals, it’s not as well suited. Zip was definitely designed for procurement workflows. They also have a vendor management portal that links up directly to something like NetSuite for management and visibility.

Pros
BILL
  • Agile budget approval - no more back and forth conversations where the team needs to "beg" for more. They actually learn very quickly how to make a rock solid business case on their own to me, because I can "1 click a yes" or "need a bit more ROI" coaching to a yes, if need be.
  • Real-time expense capture - no more waiting until month-end to see expenses that might not have been a wise choice. Or at least get a jump on why funds were spent, so we can all understand the need better.
  • No more wasted time digging around for 'that one 5 figure receipt' from 30 days ago!

  • No coding - Ability for the administrator to make changes without development resources helps us be agile as a procurement org.
  • Visibility to the user in a great user interface
  • Accountability (helps us track SLAs on response time), Audit trails keeping track of everything
  • The implementation team was incredible, as is ongoing support. They want you to succeed in your goals vs. just implement their tool

Cons
BILL
  • I wish there were more options in the BILL reimbursement platform - for example, the ability to do a report instead of submit a single expense.
  • We would love for reimbursements to feed into QuickBooks differently, but we understand that this is an early feature and hope it is further developed in the future.

Zip
  • There are some duplicated fields such as anticipated total spend vs. price line item breakdown that asks for the same thing. This is a little bit tedious
  • Does not show which invoices got processed and applied to open POs
  • Does not integrate / migrate special custom fields within Zip Intake-to-Procure into other tech stacks (NetSuite)

We have enjoyed using Divvy and its functions. The Divvy team has been great, and their support team is outstanding. They have a chatbox on the platform, and they only seem to be someone on call. I have found its benefits to be outstanding, that I recommend it to my clients. I also feel that Divvy rolling out new features only makes it more compelling to stay on as a user.

We have used American Express and BOA and while they both give you the standard use of a credit card, neither one allows you to do all the things that Divvy does. Virtual cards, budget increases, categorization, receipt maintenance. Divvy is the only one we have tried of this nature and we love it.

Zip
I prefer Zip for its for its user-friendly interface and ease of adoption, especially if the organization values a simpler and more intuitive system for users across various departments. Comparatively, Zip is a more budget-friendly solution compared to some enterprise-level systems like SAP ARIBA or Oracle PeopleSoft, especially for smaller or mid-sized organizations with specific procurement needs.

Return on Investment
BILL
  • Divvy is free, so it was tough for us to turn down. We decided to withhold our larger transactions from Divvy to receive those rewards directly.
  • Divvy has saved our Finance/Accounting team tons of time digging through expenses, reimbursements, invoices, etc.

Zip
  • Visibility for all necessary approvers and reviewers of the process.
  • Lack of open API to other systems (i.e Mondays, Smartsheet) is causing concerns for team that might want to move away from current tool.
  • No 3rd party implementation required is huge cost / time savings.
