How to get your invoices paid faster with Satago

November 26, 2020 | 7 minutes

You might think that once you’ve seen one credit control tool, you’ve seen them all. But in fact, Satago does a lot of nifty things that our competitors don’t.

Here are some of the ways that Satago can help you supercharge your invoice chasing.

Send automated invoice reminders from your own email address

Unlike many credit control platforms which send payment reminders from their own domain, Satago integrates with your existing email provider. So, you can send automated payment reminders, monthly statements and thank you emails from your own email address, creating a seamless customer journey.

People are more likely to respond to emails that feel human. Meaning your customers are likely to pay you faster when they receive payment reminders from your email address.

What’s more, you’ll receive responses to your automated emails in your own inbox. So, you can keep on top of your customer’s invoice queries as normal.

To connect your email account to Satago, you’ll need a Satago Plus license. Click here to find out more.

Add late fees to invoice reminders at the touch of a button

Calculating cumulative late fees is time-consuming. With Satago, you can add late fees to your payment reminders at the touch of a button. Satago will calculate the fees in line with statutory limits.

If you’re an existing customer, go to your email templates and click on ‘Snippets’, then select ‘Late Fees’ from the dropdown. It really is that easy.

Make your emails more personal with a customised footer

Send monthly statements to longstanding customers

If you have customers on longer payment terms with multiple open invoices, it’s a good idea to send them a monthly statement which summarises their outstanding balance.

With Satago, you can send automated monthly statements to specific customers so they’re always aware of their upcoming payments. A great way to maintain good customer relationships and ensure you’re paid on time.
