CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Governor Pat McCrory broke ground today on AvidXchange's headquarters expansion in Charlotte that will create more than 600 jobs. AvidXchange automates the Accounts Payable process providing one platform for clients to login to for anytime, anywhere access to all invoice and payment data. "AvidXchange's success shows that nothing compares to North Carolina as a place for businesses to grow and prosper," Governor McCrory said. "This is a prime example of the unlimited potential in our state, and we will not stop until similar success stories are produced all across North Carolina."
