Do you struggle to collect payment from your customers? Are they always paying you late? Oftentimes figuring out the best way to invoice and actually successfully receive payments on time can be a challenge for small businesses.

Consider using an online invoicing software to better organize the way you handle business transactions. Invoicing software allows you to send out a uniform, professional invoice to your clients. It makes organization simple, as all your invoices are saved right within the software. If you use an online invoicing system, you can even send invoices via email, making the process more expedient and without the paper waste and expense of mailing invoices. Invoicing software also helps you to keep better track of your clients, products and services. You will be more likely to invoice on time and not forget invoicing. If you monthly invoices you need to send to repeat customers using an auto-invoice function on your software can save you time and hassle.

The very same software that you use to send your invoices can also be used to send quotes to clients, and record expenses for the company. Many of them let you invoice, record expenses, send quotes and track your progress, it also lets you record payments and links to any email address book, making sending your invoices easy.

One software to consider is Freshbooks. They claim it is the fastest way to track time and invoice you clients. You can send, track and collect payments quickly. and it is great for teams, freelancers and service providers.

And one of my favorites for the sign industry is SignTracker. Sign Tracker is a complete, easy to use, management system for sign companies of all kinds and sizes. Whether you operate a multi-million dollar production facility, a small vinyl shop or a sign broker operation, this system will help you organize and grow your business. Sign Tracker will help your team organize your operation and assist you in becoming a more efficient and profitable sign company!

Small business thrive best when the money is quick to come in. Most of us do not have the ability to be waiting on payments to come through. Invoicing regularly and on time with the use of a software makes it easy to see how much money is coming in and at what rate. Having all your invoices together in one place, makes watching the progress of your business a breeze. Sure, you can just create an invoice in Word, but online invoicing software has so much more to offer than Word does, and it lends itself to good organization.

In small business each employee has to wear many different hats, and online invoicing software makes that task so much easier to handle.
