Billing systems create invoices from data and ideally send them right away. Microsoft’s Word, Excel and Access are common tools to do the job. Sometimes, parts of the invoice creation process are already automated. Mostly, however, the majority of the work is still done manually because of the need for external data, or because calculations seem to be too complicated to be done automatically.
In most cases, this is totally unnecessary and even worse, it’s error prone. An automated procedure is easier than you might think, is more reliable and saves precious time.
If you are interested in claiming back that time, simply contact me. I have implemented this many times already.
