For decades, Utah has been named the ‘home, sweet home’ for pioneers. In fact, Utah has celebrated Pioneer Day annually on July 24 since 1857 to celebrate pioneers settling in the state’s now booming metropolitan area – Salt Lake City. Since then, the Beehive State has become groundbreaking territory for industry-leading companies with cutting-edge technology built from the ground up. The state is filled with over 3.1 million innovators and problem-solvers that strive to complete everyday tasks more efficiently than before. It’s one of the reasons why AvidXchange expanded westward.
At its core, AvidXchange is the place where imagination meets innovation. Like Utah, we pride ourselves in being a ‘Place for Pioneers.’ Our team is changing accounts payable and payment processes for middle-market companies with state-of-the-art automated solutions that solve B2B payment problems. We’re strategic and savvy with technology that streamlines the way that companies do business.
Over the past 18 years, AvidXchange has grown from a small FinTech start-up to a leader in AP and payment automation across multiple industries. In the past year, we partnered with Mastercard and acquired Ariett to better serve customers with a procure-to-pay solution in addition to AP automation solutions. With each step forward, our company keeps the customer’s success at the heart of what we do.
The opening of our second headquarters in Salt Lake City is only the beginning of our journey. AvidXchange is supporting true business continuity and culture that reflects the lifestyle of our teammates. As a company, AvidXchange prides itself on fostering a company that supports the community, just as we’ve cultivated in Charlotte.
Over the years, AvidXchange has grown to now have five offices across the country. Regardless of the location, our teammates’ health and happiness are what matters most. That’s why we joined the other 6,500 tech companies in Sandy that innovate to change lives and business. Sandy is home to parks and trails that are within walking or bike-riding distance to our new office. Our new office supports the physical and mental health of our teammates and encourages them to have a blast at work. We brought this office to life with a gym, gaming area, wellness rooms, and sit-and-stand desks. We’re also excited about venues such as the Sandy Amphitheater and Mountain America Credit Union Exposition Center.
One of the most important reasons for expansion is to better cater to our customers and partners. It’s critical to have redundant operations in the spirit of where we serve customers and partners across the country. Our Charlotte headquarters hours of operation are ideal for our customers in the east, but our customer care is essential in other regions.
As we increase our goals as a company, we will continue to grow as a team. By the end of this year, we plan to welcome 45 new teammates to our Salt Lake City office. Over the next five years, AvidXchange plans to provide up to 218 career opportunities as we expand westward. Our team is looking to hire problem-solvers and life-long learners with varying experience – from entry-level to years of corporate experience. I hope you’ll explore west with AvidXchange as we continue to strive to be the best in business.
