Challenge

Dealing with overdue payments can be a nightmare and accountancy firms know this well. They are constantly chasing payments and trying to get paid on time.

"A typical accountancy firm will raise their annual bill after the year end accounts have been completed, which could be 18 months after the work started.  The customer usually has 30 days credit, which then leads to credit control getting involved for non-payment."

NR Barton wanted to tackle this issue by finding an easy way to collect payments on time while making the reconciliation process easier for their customers and themselves. Having a better cash flow management is a key component of an accountancy firm's success.

Solution

NR Barton chose Crezco because it allows them to collect payments easily and instantly, while reconciling them within their accounting software solution to save hours of unnecessary administration. Crezco automatically adds a payment checkout link directly to their invoices. Customers click on the link and pay directly from their bank account.

"Crezco has allowed us to simplify the process for our customers, payment on their phone, through the payment link, can now be done in seconds, as it is as easy as logging into your bank."

Crezco leverage open banking to provide an account-to-account payment solution. Payments are instant, free and frictionless and there is no need for customers to share any debit card details. They are simply redirected safely to their bank account to authorise the payment via strong customer authentification.

Results

Crezco even add an extra layer of security with an advanced fraud protection system. NR Barton can also spend more time on their business instead of chasing payments and reconciling invoices.
