We live in a world that is becoming increasingly reliant on the speed and convenience of online automation. But, as so many online services become the norm, do we ever stop to consider why we are adopting them? We at i-Pay think that electronic billing systems deserve to be celebrated not just for the fact that they operate online, but for the numerous advantages they offer.
With this in mind, we would like to point out a few of the main benefits of electronic billing software.
The Advantages of Electronic Billing Systems
1. Faster Payment Process
First and foremost, electronic billing makes the whole transaction process much faster. Electronic billing software is able to generate bills quickly and accurately, and send them to customers instantaneously. Once they receive their bills, customers can pay them at whatever time is most convenient, day or night, without ever having to leave their homes.
When compared to older forms of billing, electronic billing systems save a huge amount of time.
2. Greener Operations
With the environment, and its changing climate, being a great concern at present, it is important to decrease the amount of wasted resources in any way possible. And, electronic billing is an excellent way to save paper.
Being all electronic, e-billing needs no paper at all in order to bill customers, which results in saving countless trees. Because of this, e-billing is much friendlier to the environment, which has positive impacts of the companies issuing the bills.
3. Secure Delivery
One of the downsides of traditional paper billing is that bills can easily get lost in the post. Or, even worse, the receivers of the bills could claim that they were lost and the senders would have no recourse. However, when it comes to email, bills don’t get lost.
In addition to this, e-billing allows companies to send electronic bills directly to their recipients. This makes the process much more secure as it means that no one else has access to the bill and any sensitive information it may contain.
4. Clearer Paper Trail
With paper billing, any disputes over past payment were harder to track and rectify. However, with an electronic log of billing and payments, the ‘paper trail’ of past transactions is far easier to locate and follow.
5. Ease of Communication
Customer service is always important, and e-billing makes this so much easier. Instead of the uncertainly that was involved with past billing processes, customers now receive digital receipts instantaneously to inform them of their successful transactions.
