Is time-consuming invoicing impeding the success of your courier company? We have news for you: it doesn't have to be this way.
Anyone who owns or runs a courier company knows that billing clients is like a pounding headache that never seems to go away. And if you get the numbers wrong, you will either be out-of-pocket, or look slapdash to your clients.
Throw into the mix complicated courier tariffs, such as: weight matrices, fuel surcharges, out-of-area collections/deliveries, duty and VAT (among many others). It's no wonder some logistics companies struggle to manage their invoices.
But, the good news is, it really doesn't have to be this way. If billing clients is taking up too much of your time and getting in the way of the day-to-day running of your business, now is when you should invest in software that does the legwork for you. For a relatively small amount of money, you could save tonnes on time and staff costs.
AIMS - the ibuprofen of the IT world
AIMS is essentially an instant pain-killer for this particular type of admin headache. The ibuprofen of the IT world. It allows you to enter in all your courier jobs easily. These immediately go into an invoice area when they're completed, ready to be sent out to your clients. They can be sent in a batch if preferred. And at a quick glance, you can work out if you've made a profit, or a loss, and if margins are high, or low.
Not only is it as simple as can be, it also gives you powerful knowledge about how your business is doing and where changes need to be made. If it flags up that margins are low for a particular job, or for a specific client, you can immediately adjust what you're doing.
That means our software can turn courier companies that are burdened by admin, into efficient and thriving businesses - overnight. And it's quick. There are no delays from your end, and therefore, you should be paid on time too.
But it's not just about you. Your client needs to trust that you're invoicing them accurately. A miscalculated rate here or an overcharge there, won't ingratiate you with your clients and they may look elsewhere. AIMS software provides in-depth detail about the jobs and their pricing breakdown. Any queries can be explained immediately and there's little room for error.
Of course, we would say all this, wouldn't we? Well, why not give it a go. We can easily set up a free demo for you, so you can see for yourself. And we promise not to invoice you for it . . .
