The traditional invoicing process is extraordinarily wasteful in terms of the effort and time that goes into creating and issuing an invoice. It must be created and inserted into an invoice printing batch Dontari Poe Jersey , which, in turn, requires the use of a customized invoice with pre-positioned fields and logos, plus a review of the printed invoices, stuffing into envelopes Tevin Coleman Jersey , affixing postage, and mailing. Even then, there is a risk that the invoice will be lost in the mail, either due to a problem at the post office or because the recipient’s address has changed. Further, there are delays at the receiving company Keanu Neal Jersey , while the mail room sorts through the mail and delivers it internally (sometimes to the wrong person). Some of these problems can be avoided through the use of e-mailed billings that are delivered through the Internet. There are several ways to do this.

The least recommended approach is to post the invoices on a company’s own Web site. This means that customers can access the company’s credit card payment system at the same time they access their invoices, which results in accounts receivable that are collected with inordinate speed. However, this approach requires customers to access the company’s Web site in order to find their invoices, which they are not likely to do. In addition, this requires an interface between the accounting database and the Web site Sean Harlow Jersey , so that invoices are posted regularly to the Web site. Further, there may be a need to create user identification numbers and passwords, so that they can access their invoices. Also, if customers forget their access codes, there must be an internal customer service function that can assist them with this information Duke Riley Jersey , which involves additional personnel costs to maintain.

A better approach is to “push” electronic invoices to customers by email. This requires the collection of an email address from each customer at the time an order is taken (or verification of an existing one when a reorder occurs). This address is then attached to an electronic invoice form that is generated, instead of a paper-based invoice, and issued to the customer over the Internet. It is then available to the customer a few moments later, allowing for immediate payment (possibly) or at least a quick perusal of the invoice and a return of information to the company regarding any problems discovered by the customer. This approach greatly reduces the time required to get invoicing information to the customer.

There are several problems with Internet invoicing that one must be aware of. First, some customers change their email addresses with some regularity Takkarist McKinley Jersey , so there is a chance that invoices will be sent to an old address, and therefore never accessed. Also, there is some risk that customers will accidentally erase an incoming electronic invoice without reviewing it. Furthermore, this approach leaves no paper record of the invoice at the company, just a computer record; this is a problem for those organizations where the collections effort is primarily based on paper files Austin Hooper Vapor Untouchable Jersey , rather than ready access to the accounting database.
