Automated payment system
An automated payment system helps in payment collection, recovery and reconciliation. The software offers multiple payment options that offer customers flexibility in making payments that enhance the customer experience and improves customer satisfaction scores. The software allows customers to pay either online (credit or debit card, payment gateways like Gpay, Paypal, Stripe, and Sagepay) or via cash. The system ensures customers pay on time and helps in improving the positive cash flow by sending automated late payment reminders and low wallet balance reminders.

Auto-generated stock reports
The software also has automated stock management integrated into its system. The system auto-generates stock reports that include precise information about the amount of stock available, the total amount of stock required to fulfil customers’ demand and the extra amount of stock that needs to be procured. Having precise information avoid businesses from getting out stocked and overstocked and prevent businesses from financial losses.
