No one loves invoicing. That’s partly because 92.6% of small businesses say they are rarely paid on time.
Adding insult to injury are the complex, automated, and expensive invoicing workflows that don’t solve the problem.
We’re here to offer a fix. The reason people haven’t been able to improve their invoicing is that they’re trying to solve the wrong problem.
The problem at the heart of why most invoices go unpaid is a communication one. The number one reason people don’t pay your invoice on time is that they forgot.
