How to Get Paid Faster With Mobile Invoicing Software

FieldPulse | May 30, 2016

Let’s set the scene…

You show up to the job on time, bring all the right equipment, do fantastic work for your customer, and are out of there in time. There are smiles all around and you move on to your next appointment of the day. No worries.

Except, you didn’t get paid for your services yet – you’ll send the invoice later, right?

With packed days, going from one job to the next, it can be easy to let the task of invoice creation slip to the end of the day or the end of the week. 

Wouldn’t it be great if the invoice created itself; if all you had to do was fill in a final few details and send a complete electronic invoice to your customer right away?

Meet the Best Invoicing Software for Small Business

With FieldPulse mobile invoicing, invoice creation for your service business can become the easiest and quickest part of the job. Not only is it an efficient process, but it will also improve your cash flow situation. Studies have shown that companies using electronic invoices are paid quicker than than those using written invoices. Not only is incoming money more consistent, but similar research shows that customers prefer paying electronic invoices over written invoices, especially when they have the ability to do so electronically such as with a credit card or debit card. FieldPulse allows you to send out invoices in seconds, making your bank account and your customers happier.

For every new job record or appointment you set up, FieldPulse’s mobile invoicing will create an invoice for you. That means you’ll never forget to create an invoice at the end of a job or project. With the invoice tracking system, you’ll always be able to manage your invoices, such as closing them when they’ve been paid or following up when they have not been paid yet. When the times comes for you to send it or present it to your client, all you need to do is ensure the line items and prices are accurate. With the touch of a button, you can automatically generate Invoice PDFs and email them directly to your customer.
