How’s your accounts receivable lately? Late paying customers, past due invoices, high days sales outstanding, oh my! But how did we get here and what can be done to fix it? Most businesses don’t end up running into difficulty because they don’t provide a good service or no one likes their product. Most of the time it’s just that delicate balance between invoices outstanding and bills coming due. We call this cash flow.
I know you’ve heard this from your accountant many times, but what does it really mean? It just means if you’ve billed your customers and they take too long to pay or don’t pay at all you’re going to have a hard time making your bills let alone growing your business. The problem is most business owners didn’t get into business to manage accounts receivable. Sound familiar?
This process used to take copious amounts and even whole departments of people as you grow. But we believe we’ve found a better way through automation. With InvoiceSherpa we directly connect to your QuickBooks account and analyze your invoices to determine who’s already behind, who’s getting there, and even who’s paid. We combine this will a set of follow up actions including:
- Automated e-mails
- Live AR specialist phone calls
- SMS Text Messages
- Third party collections and legal
With a schedule you define the system automatically schedules and performs all of these actions in a symphony of cash flow perfection that will turn any lagging accounts into good paying customers. We follow the invoice from the time it’s created all the way through payment making sure your business gets paid on time and has a low days sales outstanding.
