DataServ empowers finance and accounting teams to succeed by automating Accounts Payable

Founded in 1994 by businesspeople that happen to be developers,
DataServ was created to change the way software is delivered.

“Back then you had two choices: Off the shelf and custom software. Each on its own, just didn’t work. We were seeing it fail time and time again. Then one day, I read a startling statistic in The Standish Group’s Chaos Report...Traditional software had an 85% failure rate. It just wasn’t delivering what companies were asking for. So, we thought, there must be a better way. We took the best parts of each and developed Accounts Payable SaaS.”
– Jeff Haller, Co-Founder, CEO, CRO

To this day, we offer unparalleled Accounts Payable Automation solutions. Our SaaS platform was built from scratch – not bolted together from acquisitions – with input from tens of thousands of users over the past 27 years. We offer clients the best of both worlds: a solution that's 80% industry standard and 20% tailored; delivered with service, process knowledge, and a satisfaction guarantee. Our incredible, long term relationships with clients demonstrate one of our core tenets: evolution. We have continually evolved to accommodate the changing needs of our clients and the Accounts Payable industry as a whole.

From our inception we created solutions that are:

  1. Delivered as a service
  2. Tailored to your business
  3. Valuable to the productivity and profitability of your business
  4. Pragmatic, sustainable, and affordable for real-world process automation challenges

We took the best parts of each solution and added in our own exceptional features and benefits.
