Have you ever been stuck with the dilemma / hassle of a client emailing you to proceed with a job but left you still without a proper signed agreement?
You obviously want the work, you want to keep your new client onside, but you also don’t want the headache if things go pear shaped when it comes to getting paid by having no contract in place to protect you and give you the best possible chance to recover your money.
What to do!? Take the job on with essentially only an “electronic handshake” to protect you, cross your fingers and hope for the best? Or, have the extra task of insisting on the client signing and returning your Terms of Trade before commencing. This can create inconvenience at the start of the job but provides great reassurance at the end when it comes to getting paid.
With everything increasingly being done over the internet and average payment days for business continuing to be on the rise it is a little of the damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
The solution for you could well be a new software system called JGID – Just Get It Done! A game changer for any professional services or trades business. It combines the ease of winning a new job/having a quote accepted over the internet/email with the reassurance of having your terms of Trade disclosed and accepted by your client at the same time.
By making it easy for your clients to sign your quotes electronically, JGID makes the whole quotation acceptance process seamless, whilst allowing you to continue to win jobs easily with the peace of mind of having a watertight contract to cover your back.
But the software doesn’t stop there. JGID comes with a mobile app for your fields staff that works on any device, does timesheets, invoicing and a great deal more, potentially saving you hundreds if not thousands of hours a year in reduced admin time and down time on site.
One key feature is that it also makes it extremely easy for you to lodge debt collection, straight from within your job management system.
At the click of one button within JGID, you can send an email to EC Credit Control with the signed quote and the unpaid invoice attached automatically, making EC Credit Control Australia’s first debt collection agency offering this level of convenience for businesses like yours.
