Receiving payment for your roofing work doesn’t always go smoothly. Everything from customer delays to processing difficulties to accounting errors can keep you from getting paid in a timely manner. Many roofers are looking for solutions to help them get paid faster, keep them from having to rely on checks for payment, and provide peace of mind for their customers. New payment technologies, like AccuPay, have emerged to solve many of these problems.
AccuLynx is now offering AccuPay, a new way to receive electronic payments. This simple, secure electronic payment option is fully integrated into our roofing software and allows you to process credit, debit, and ACH transactions from anywhere. Using AccuPay to collect payments from your customers is an easy way to get paid faster and make the payment process run more smoothly. Here are some of the advantages that AccuPay can bring to your roofing business.
A Faster Payment Process
Do you feel like it takes too long for your roofing business to receive payment? Many roofing companies have lots of outstanding invoices for work that’s been completed because of various delays with the payment process. This can cause significant problems with cash flow and accounting.
AccuPay gives roofers the tools to collect and process customer payments more quickly. With our electronic payment services, you don’t have to wait for a check to get money for your jobs. Customers can use their credit cards or bank accounts to pay directly. And since AccuPay is fully integrated into the AccuLynx platform, the process is even faster. You or your customer can input payment information from anywhere, directly in the same roofing software platform you’re already using to manage your business. No extra steps are necessary.
Convenience and Flexibility for Your Customers
Using AccuPay can help you improve your customer service. With the available transactions in AccuPay, it’s much more likely that you’ll be able to give your customers the payment option that works best for both you and them. Customers appreciate the flexibility of having multiple options, and when you offer them one that they already prefer, it shows you’re committed to meeting their needs.
In addition, the ability to receive payments through AccuPay can go a long way towards establishing credibility and trust, particularly if you’re a smaller operation. Being able to securely process electronic payments gives homeowners peace of mind, while demonstrating that your business is using the most up-to-date solutions. During this time where many roofers are working remotely and homeowners are looking to reduce in-person interactions, AccuPay lets your customers pay you from anywhere—just one more thing you can offer to ensure your customers that you have their best interests at heart.
No More Lost Funds
Whether it’s a check that gets lost in the mail or a payment processing method that’s prone to error, some roofers have experienced the headache that is losing all or some of a payment. Finding a trusted way to accept payments that eliminates these errors allows roofers to have full control of their funds and spares them from the difficulties of tracking down lost payments.
Switching to electronic payments eliminates some of the issues associated with payment by check, such as the possibility of checks being lost or damaged. You can easily control when and how payments are entered, so it’s easier to keep track of how money is coming in. Payment processing in AccuPay is done by WorldPay, one of the largest and most trusted payment processors in the world, so you can rest assured that your funds are in good hands. And if you’re having any issues or difficulties with the AccuPay system, AccuLynx offers dedicated specialists to provide you the support you need, just like we do for our roofing software platform as a whole.
Further Integrating Your Business Management
Many contractors rely on roofing software like AccuLynx to manage every aspect of their business, from estimates to reporting. Having an integrated system for all their business needs helps these roofers streamline their processes, stay organized, and spend less time on routine tasks. Adding a tool like AccuPay into the mix doesn’t just help roofers collect payments more quickly and provide better customer service. It also integrates the payment process into the rest of your business activities and lets you keep everything associated with your jobs in a single, easily accessible location.
When your customer makes a payment using AccuPay, you can apply it directly to a job in AccuLynx, seamlessly updating the job information without having to enter data twice. If you have a QuickBooks account, you can automatically sync your job-specific payments and details with that account using the AccuLynx integration. You can easily see overall payment trends using the AccuLynx reporting dashboard, so you can keep track of which jobs have been paid and which are still outstanding. Using AccuPay is the easiest way to streamline your accounting process alongside all your other processes and give your company a single source of truth for all job information, using roofing software.
Getting paid for your roofing work doesn’t have to be a painful process. AccuPay helps you receive payment faster, offer your customers flexibility and convenience, and manage your business with a single tool.
