Batch Invoicing- what does it mean and when to use

Your invoice is a record of work done. Without one it’s hard for clients to understand what they are paying for. The ability to track invoices sent, paid and due is fundamental to your cash flow. Creating and sending a large number of periodic invoices can be very time consuming but on the other hand, a backlog of invoices, missing invoices, can be critical to business success and customer experience. That’s where batch invoicing comes in handy.

Batch invoicing involves bundling different invoices together to be processed as one. It allows you to handle large volumes of documents quickly. This improves process efficiency, saves time and effort by skipping repetitive tasks like data input, and ultimately, reduces the risk of human error. Batching can occur whenever nominated- monthly, weekly or any specification for your workflow and clients. It minimises the amount of individual attention required for the task which means, no more processing or sending emails individually. Similarly, when it comes time to pay your bills, you can batch all invoices you received from suppliers together and pay all the invoices at once.

SapphireOne batch invoicing functionality processes, sends and records all invoice transactions 

SapphireOne allows you to select a group of invoices to email or print. Regular or periodic invoicing helps you increase productivity by billing multiple clients all at once so you can focus on other important tasks. Sending invoices on the same day of each month is more likely to result in regular and reliable payments.
