REASON NUMBER 3: Get Paid Faster
Pure and simple, when you use online invoicing software to automate, you will get paid faster.
When you combine Chargent with a Salesforce Invoicing system like Salesforce Billing, you get a lot of extra features that cut out many unnecessary steps in the payment process, including:
- A payment request created by the system as soon as a defined trigger condition is met. No more waiting for that regular invoice batch to process. Instead, invoices are sent right at the moment the customer owes you.
- Using Salesforce to email invoices. You won’t have any more delay in invoice delivery.
- After completing a payment, Salesforce immediately and automatically records the customer and transaction details. Employees no longer have to register these payments manually, and your business eliminates delays from processing and reconciling payments.
REASON NUMBER 4: Reduced Costs
Every business wants to get more customers, however the more customers you serve, the more invoices you’ll need to send.
IF you are still sending paper invoices, you have to deal with fixed costs for each invoice you send out. Studies show that each paper invoice costs an organization an average of $7.99. Online invoicing can cut those costs dramatically, on average, down to $3.13 per invoice.
There’s money to be saved in processing, too. Businesses pay up to $3.00 to process each paper check. Processing a bank transfer payment typically costs less than $1.00 per transaction.
REASON NUMBER 5: Better Customer Service
When you use Salesforce for invoicing, you are also saving your customers time, and hassle.
When you add a “Pay Now” button to your Salesforce invoice, your customers can quickly pay with a card or bank account. They won’t have to take time to write a check, then find a stamp, and finally drop it in the mail. Does anyone really want to be doing this?
Most importantly, payment and invoicing details are available right in Salesforce. When your customers do reach out, any teammate can help them quickly! Your team can view, or even resend, invoices at the touch of a button.
