CHARLOTTE, N.C., (May 15, 2018) – AvidXchange™, a leading fintech provider of accounts payable (AP) and payment automation solutions for midsize companies, and Premier Community Bank (Premier Community) today announced a multi-year partnership that will bring innovative technology solutions to Premier Community Bank’s Homeowner Association (HOA) management customers. Through a strategic referral partnership with AvidXchange, Premier Community, headquartered in Bradenton, Fla., can quickly provide managers access to AvidXchange’s industry-leading AP automation and payment tool that addresses the many challenges HOA management companies face in paying property vendors.
“Management companies and board members face a daunting challenge of paying vendors securely and on time,” stated Michael Praeger, CEO and Co-Founder of AvidXchange. “We are proud to partner with Premier Community Bank to bring automation and payment innovation to their large and growing HOA customer base in central Florida. We value Premier Community’s focus on association services – an area where AvidXchange has been a true pioneer.”
The benefits to Premier Community and AvidXchange are considerable. Premier Community’s Association Services team adds another innovative technology that allows HOA managers to reduce costs and save time while allowing their board members increased security and control in paying bills. It is estimated that 75 percent of property payments to vendors today are still processed manually by paper check. AvidXchange, through the partnership with Premier Community, gains a financial institution partner that has a reputation for a customer-focused approach to HOA management companies.
“AvidXchange, with hundreds of HOA management companies as customers, is the acknowledged leader in AP automation and payments to associations. This was an easy choice for us,” said James Bradley, EVP and Director of Association Services, Premier Community Bank. “Our managers gain a solution that fundamentally improves the operations of their business, and we gain a HOA-industry software partner that is committed to our success.”
