Electronic Statements and e-Billing
Why print and mail statements if you can email or fax them?
Typical annual statement generated and emailed is around 3 cents.
What's the cost when you print statements and then mail them?
What if you do that every month?
Our systems are designed for sending electronic statements in bulk as
well as individually. That applies to Email, SMS and Fax channels.
Certainly the length of the SMS electronic statement is limited, but if you are getting those from your Telco, why not to follow the suit if the occasion is right?
Typically we generate electronic statements or invoices on-the-fly from your data, but if you already have the PDFs to send, we will do that as well.
When we generate the electronic statements ourselves, we keep the PDFs for some time after the campaign is over. When some emails and faxes bounce, we will print and send the affected statements by mail, or send the PDFs to you if you prefer.
We can Email-enable, SMS-enable, Fax-enable your computer system to send invoices electronically.
Not only the switch to electronic media saves printing/mailing costs, you also have the process automated, which saves operational costs and makes your invoices paid faster.
An added bonus is that the invoices can be sent on the back of personalised marketing messages, so you generate more sales as you invoice!
We can also include third party marketing into your invoices, so every time you invoice you earn! The possibilities are endless, just talk to our marketing team.
