Invoices are an essential part of most businesses’ finances.
A properly designed invoice helps you get paid on time, provides legal protection for you and your client and validates your company’s revenue. While invoices are undoubtedly important, you can avoid spending time or energy manually generating them.
Manually generated invoices can often have errors that can lead to late payments and ultimately harm your business’ chance for success. Constant cash flow is necessary to maintain utilities like electricity, to pay staff and purchase supplies. When payments are delayed, it can create significant problems.
When payments are delayed, it can create significant problems. Small businesses spend an average of 130 hours each year chasing late invoices and often do not receive outstanding payments until 30 days after the contractually agreed terms.
With invoicing software you can easily create, edit and send invoices from anywhere, at any time. An automated billing system promptly dispatches and tracks invoices to help reduce the risk of late or missed payments. Invoicing software can also remind customers and clients about upcoming deadlines.
Unpaid invoices happen for many reasons. One of the most common reasons is when statements contain errors. Invoices include crucial information about your company, your client and the services they provide. Clients could refuse to pay when this information is incorrect or fails to match their records.
