Billtrust Honors Equifax Professional with “Rockstar” Designation
HAMILTON, N.J., Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Billtrust, the leader in Payment Cycle Management, today announced its latest “Billing Rockstar”, a formal acknowledgment of financial professionals who are leading a transformation of the invoice-to-cash process within their organizations.
Terri Buffolino, Director of Project Management at Equifax, earned the Billing Rockstar designation after being nominated by her entire team for her leadership in automating the company’s invoice-to-cash. Among Ms. Buffolino’s accomplishments:
- eAdoption: Equifax grew its electronic invoicing rate to 69%, with 62% of eInvoices being paid online. Payments are now being made faster and at a much less lower cost than conventional paper / mail transactions.
- AP Portals: Ms. Buffolino automated the process of submitting invoices to AP systems, which cut down on manual processes for her team and met the demands of Equifax’s customers
- Client Connect: Ms. Buffolino improved customer satisfaction by leveraging a customer service and management portal that provides insight and control into their invoice-to-cash activity. This provides instant access to all accounts for her customers, allowing them to manage the invoice-to-cash process more efficiently.
Billtrust created the “Billing Rockstar” designation to recognize individuals who are judged to be visionaries and high achievers. The primary criteria for receiving the designation are improving cash flow, lowering DSO, reducing organizational costs, and driving customer satisfaction.
“Billtrust is pleased to recognize individuals who demonstrate leadership and innovation in their profession,” said Flint Lane, Billtrust CEO and President. “The ‘Billing Rockstar’ designation will be an honor that will follow each person throughout their career, helping them to reach even greater levels of achievement.”
Billing professionals who achieve the “Billing Rockstar” designation receive a customized platinum record similar to those given to musical superstars. They will also be featured in industry publications and honored in the “Hall of Fame” at Billtrust’s Hamilton, New Jersey headquarters.
