Billtrust Commits to Expand in New Jersey, Create 200 New Jobs
TRENTON, N.J. (August 23, 2017) – Billtrust, a payment cycle management software company, today announced a decision to expand its operations and workforce in New Jersey, following approval of Grow New Jersey (Grow NJ) tax credits by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) Board at its August meeting. Advanced under the New Jersey Economic Opportunity Act (EOA), Grow NJ is the State’s main job creation and retention incentive program.
Founded in 2001, Billtrust provides automated invoice-to-cash solutions for the business-to-business market via a proprietary, end-to-end cloud-based solution. The company has chosen to establish a new 88,759-square-foot headquarters in Lawrenceville over a competing location in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Billtrust, which is consolidating existing operations from two leased facilities, expects to create 200 new jobs in the State and retain 228 employees.
“The availability of highly educated, skilled technology professionals in New Jersey has been a tremendous asset to our ability to create a corporate culture that fosters creativity and collaboration,” said Billtrust Founder and CEO Flint Lane. “Support from Grow NJ will help us to expand our presence here in New Jersey and further leverage the local talent pool as we grow.”
One of the primary legislative objectives of the Grow NJ program is to drive growth in targeted industries. To date, more than 70 percent of approved Grow NJ tax credits have been for projects in targeted industries, including technology, energy, finance, manufacturing and logistics.
“Innovative companies like Billtrust play an important role in our economy through the jobs they create as well as the resources they provide to help other businesses succeed,” EDA CEO Melissa Orsen said. “We are pleased that New Jersey’s robust technology ecosystem, and the Grow NJ program, helped to encourage Billtrust to expand and invest in the State.”
Billtrust currently employs more than 400 employees across the U.S. and Canada. While widely recognized for its financial technology leadership, Billtrust has also been rated among the “Best Places to Work in New Jersey” by Best Companies Group for the fourth consecutive year. This year, Billtrust moved up to the number 11 spot within the large employer category. Recently, Billtrust earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 list for the 11th consecutive year, placing them among one-tenth of a percent of companies to ever do so.
In addition to the Grow NJ program, the EDA offers an expanding portfolio of support to nurture technology and life sciences companies throughout their life cycle.

Governor Guadagno, the Partnership is the hub for all economic development activity in New Jersey and is comprised of four interconnected and highly focused organizational elements: Choose New Jersey, The Business Action Center, the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education and the EDA.
EDA Board meetings are typically held at 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at 36 West State Street in Trenton. The Board meeting schedule, as well as Board agendas and minutes, are available at www.njeda.gov. All Board actions will take effect at the expiration of the statutory period for the Governor’s review and consideration of the meeting minutes.
