MakersHub Pay, developed by accounts payable startup MakersHub, offers construction companies a groundbreaking solution to eliminate manual data entry for bills. The platform’s innovative technology, including the proprietary WiseVision technology, enables instant data capture, streamlined approval processes, and seamless integration with QuickBooks.

Background of the Problem
Construction companies often face the challenge of managing numerous line items on their bills. Capturing and coding each item accurately is crucial for these companies to track job costs and estimate future project expenses. Phong Ngo, co-founder and CEO of MakersHub, experienced this issue firsthand while working as the president of General Plasma, a nanotechnology equipment supplier. Despite having a CFO, accounting manager, and third-party accounting assistance, Ngo found that the company’s books were never accurate or complete. Bills and receipts were not entered or coded correctly, resulting in missing data and reports that took days to compile from multiple spreadsheets. Ngo recognized the need for a real solution to streamline vendor management and bill payment processes.
