In April 2021, Tipalti confirmed its acquisition of Approve.com, a Cloud-based procurement services provider, in order to further expand its portfolio of financial operations solutions.
In June 2021, Tipalti revealed new capabilities with improved Tipalti Multi-Entity and Multi-FX offerings that make it more convenient for firms with international subsidiaries to manage their accounts payable data and processes at the entity level. Firms are also able to simplify foreign exchange and currency management activities.
Chen Amit, CEO and Co-founder of Tipalti, remarked:
“Our continued growth across the entire business is a clear indicator that high-velocity businesses are prioritizing the digitization of their finance operations, and we are proud to support our customers by automating the entire payables cycle, from procurement through to payment. With Tipalti’s leadership position in the Mass Pay space, we are very excited to have Paco Suro join our team to help accelerate our innovation within this critical segment.”
