For over the last decade I've not only started several of my own companies, I've also helped a lot of other companies get their startup ball rolling. One of the most common hassles I've seen other companies struggle with and even experienced my, is how to handle cash flow. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 53% of small business owners have claimed that cash is their top business challenge. Additionally, a study conducted by the National Federation of Independent Business discovered that the small business receivables cycle has grown 30% to 48 days over the last five years. So, what could I do to help address this problem? Along my startup travels, I acquired an invoicing and time tracking site called http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=762892&u=548945&m=60672&urllink=&afftrack=, which aspires to be the absolute best place online to pay bills, when bills are due. If you haven't heard of Due.com, I'm here to give you five reasons why you should switch your current invoicing software to Due.com. And, if you are still invoicing by hand, stop that right now! 1. You get your money easily and professionally Stepping up from hard to follow word documents and clunky excel spreadsheet formatted invoices to professional invoices makes you look more like the expert you are. And research shows that freelancers are statistically more likely to get paid if they have a professional invoice system. It is easy to get lost in your accounting and forget to invoice; we know this pain and keep everything organized for you. 2. Awesome Interface One of the most appealing features regarding http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=762892&u=548945&m=60672&urllink=&afftrack= is the design of its interface. It's easy-to-use, clutter-free, and is organized by brightly colored icons so you can find where you want to go fast. The dashboard is so intuitive that once you login, you can quickly locate your clients, settings, paid & unpaid invoices, and project reports. Think of the Due.com dashboard as a highly organized personal assistant. 3. Free Invoicing There are a lot of invoicing services and tools available, but with Due.com you can find the template that best suits your brand - which saves you the time and headache of trying to create your own. You can conveniently upload your logo as well so that you can increase your brand's presence. Dealing with clients overseas? Not a problem. Due.com supports more than 100 countries and tax systems. 4. Simple Time Tracking Besides the awesome Due.com interface, the simple time tracking feature is probably our most-talked about feature. It's been completely revamped and has a clean and easy intuitive view so that you can clearly see how much time you've spent on a project - an aspect you'll certainly use when you invoice that specific client. We've also added a pretty cool widget that allows you to browse around MST sites while doing other tasks. Now you can keep your MST site open and pop out the timer via the widget. 5. Performance Graphs We're all busy people. Which is why Due creates a performance graph that gives you a snapshot of outbound invoices, projects, and current tasks. This glimpse into your performance allows you to quickly grasp how your business is doing and what you need to do to make improvements. 6. Third Party Integration Due.com integrates with a number of popular third parties, such as Basecamp, PayPal, Stripe, and Quickbooks. By integrating with these third parties, you can collaborate with team members, get paid electronically, and sync your invoices into accounting software.
