Automated payment reminders

Increase cash flow with automated payment reminders

While sending invoices and tracking down payment are critical to cashflow, they’re also tedious, time-consuming tasks that are often put off until tomorrow. But when invoices go unpaid, it can quickly create serious cash flow issues. Fortunately, there’s an easy solution that can work for any small business: automated payment reminders.

With automated reminders, your customers will automatically receive an email or text at certain intervals, reminding them to pay their open invoice. Because automated payment reminders need no human intervention, you and your staff are free to work on more high-value tasks. Your busy customers will appreciate the nudge. And because customers are more likely to pay after receiving a reminder, you can count on a positive bump in your cashflow.

Automated payment reminders work best when combined with automated online invoicing and other tools like marketing automation for small business. That’s exactly what you get with Thryv, a do-it-all platform for managing virtually every aspect of your business from a single dashboard.

Benefits of automated payment reminders

With automated payment reminders, the benefits are clear and persuasive.

Lower costs
Sending payment reminders via email and text is a lot cheaper than reminders sent through the mail. You’ll save on the cost of printing, paper, envelopes and postage as well as the time you’d otherwise spend sending reminders and making phone calls.

Accelerated cash flow
Because automated payment reminders are sent electronically, customers receive them right away rather than days later through the mail. Additionally, when you offer online payment options, they can pay immediately, further accelerating your cashflow.

Customer satisfaction
Most customers want to pay their bills on time and appreciate the convenience of getting a reminder and having options to pay online.

Stronger customer relationships
When you make automated payment reminders part of an ongoing campaign to communicate with customers, you can nurture relationships in ways that leads to higher customer loyalty and opportunities to increase the value of each customer transaction.
