Here at Cleanshelf, we’re on a mission to help you better control your online services spending, use the optimal services for your needs, and minimize red-tape. Today we’re excited to announce a new feature that will save you a ton of time and many annoying emails each month.
The Monthly Hassle of Invoice Collection
Jane is the office manager at a growing startup. Sally is an external bookkeeper making sure expenses at the startup are in check. Each month they get together over coffee and they comb through credit card statements trying to identify what each of the line items on the statement mean and who made the expense. Most of the line items are travel expenses, but these are easy. The startup is using Expensify and Sally can resolve all credit card items involving travel expenses with just a few clicks. What's left are mostly charges of online services in use at the startup. This is where Jane steps in.
Jane needs to match all credit card statements with invoices. This requires checking her email inbox for all invoices that the service subscribers already reported, finding all those that are missing and then begging, pleading and reminding the subscribers of those services that did not provide the invoice. When there are some new, previously unknown line items, Jane needs to google what those services might be and identify who is the subscriber without disrupting workflows of her coworkers too much.
Jane gets an occasional chocolate from coworkers to make it up for her kind reminders. Despite the energy boost, chocolate is a poor compensation for the effort wasted each month on the activity that does not create any value for the company.
Thirty-Seven at One Blow - Not a Fairytale, It’s a Feature
Jane recently found Cleanshelf and the hassle of collecting service invoices is gone. Sally can now log in to Cleanshelf and download all thirty-seven invoices with a single click all by herself. Job done. No searching the mailbox. No begging, reminding, threatening… A cup of fresh Italian coffee and a click. Sally just saved everyone a lot of valuable time, technical leads save on their chocolate expenses, and the company manages their spending way better than before.
Jane is in better shape as she eats less chocolate. She has more time to create value by improving employee happiness and productivity.
Be like Jane. Get started with Cleanshelf now and put an end to the monthly invoice hunt.
