Billing & Collections-SMS Payment Reminder
Unpaid invoices are expensive. Not only because they affect your cash flow position, but also because they need extra follow-up. Luckily, you can reduce your costs and the number of unpaid invoices by sending automated payment reminders. Via SMS. It is Fast, easy and cost effective.
Every business needs to invoice customers and clients for payment of services rendered and goods received. It is also true that every business will, at some time or another, experience cash flow issues as a result of late or non-payment of accounts and invoices by consumers. In most cases, non-payment is simply an advertent oversight. People frequently forget to pay, and many will require a gentle reminder to do so on time, if not at all.
Your business’s cash flow and overall operating costs can be improved enormously by using an SMS Payment System for facilitation of billing and payments. Thanks to an SMS Payment System, funds owing and even loan repayments are more likely to be paid in a timely manner thanks to reminders sent out via text message.
SMS Alert: Give Customers the Chance to Get Ahead of Their Bills. Even better than reminding someone when their bill is already overdue, a Payment Reminder SMS capability will allow you to message customers ahead of due date, offering them the attractive incentive of an early payment discount. This method is particularly effective, with international research conducted by IPA and the United States Agency for International Development in 2012 finding that SMS reminders improved the probability of on-time bill payments by 7-9%, and the ‘average days late’ dropped by 2 days per month. These payment reminders can be sent to a large number of customers at once via our bulk sms technology, with personalisation incorporated to enhance your customer relationships whilst maintain the integrity of your cashflow in a non-threatening manner.
SMS Alert: Save Your Customers Money and Keep them Happy. No one likes receiving a huge bill, especially when it’s completely unexpected – an all too common situation which has come to be known as ‘bill shock”. Thankfully MessageMedia can save your customers a lot of money, by sending them sms alerts once they’ve used a pre-set percentage of their monthly service or reached a certain level of spending. This can also save you the time and hassle of having to deal with customers who cannot afford to pay unexpectedly large bills, meaning everyone is a winner. This works for a whole range of services – from mobile, broadband, to pre-paid gym membership and beyond.
