We unify and simplify invoicing for you
and your customer.

Globys is a fundamentally new way for B2B product and service companies to invoice their customers. In today’s competitive business climate of digital disruption and mergers and acquisitions, we allow companies to add billing and accounting of new products and services without fragmenting the customer experience.

about

Our story.

Globys was founded in 2008 to accelerate time-to-market and cash flow for B2B products and services. We saw the need for a solution that unifies fragmented billing and accounting processes into a single customer-centric experience which we call the “virtual invoice”.

Now, we have staff and clients around the world, as well as millions of active users. We are a true partner to our clients, focused squarely on providing them and their customers the best experience possible.
