One of the main reasons why many organisations go out of business is due to poor cash flow and the reason for this is because they don’t regularly chase overdue invoices.
In most cases – even when times are hard – your customers won’t deliberately forget to pay your
More often than not, late payments are the result of an oversight or an administration error – an invoice being sent to the wrong person, not including correct purchase order information, being misfiled, or simply slipping through the net.
While larger organisations can usually ride the wave of delayed bill payments, a non-steady cash flow can make or break start-ups and SMEs.
Small company business owners are all too aware of this, but even so, their key priority is to secure new business. They rarely have the time to make routine phone calls at the end of each month, reminding clients that their invoice is due for payment or overdue, especially if the outstanding amount is not that significant.
In these circumstances, SMS is the perfect solution because it allows you to quickly and cost-effectively send reminder messages to large groups simultaneously. Messages can be written in just a few minutes, leaving you free to secure new business or deal with more challenging customers.
A number of our clients already use SMS for credit control, saving them valuable time and money. Their feedback has been so positive that we have decided to develop a new automated invoice reminder service to help organisations regain control of their cash flow.
Our new service, known as GentleReminder.net ensures your unpaid invoices are never forgotten about. It automates your entire routine reminder process and sends messages to your customers by email and SMS, informing them that their invoice is due for payment or overdue.
No special software or plug-ins are needed. Once you’ve set up your account, you just need to upload your customer and debtor lists. Our software will compare the two and automatically send out reminder messages to your customers until you tell it to stop.
Who will benefit?
Sole traders, small businesses and professionals as well as larger organisations where spending time on the phone chasing payment is both time-consuming and expensive.
If you find you are spending a disproportionate amount of time on the phone chasing routine invoices then sign up for this innovative service today.
GentleReminder.net will be available from mid July and we are offering attractive rates to early adopters. Complete the contact form if you would like to find out more.
