“Every year, every Australian office worker uses about 10,000 sheets of A4 paper, with approximately 50 per cent of this going straight to landfill.” —Sustainable Living Guide
It’s hard not to be shocked by this statistic and it’s probably one we should all keep top of mind as we next hit ‘print’.
These days, businesses are constantly looking for ways to streamline administrative systems and processes – and if in doing so, we can also reduce our environmental footprint – even better.
At PaySmart, our full service direct debit billing saves our clients time and money, and makes life easier for their customers to automate their regular payments.
However, we know that for some customers signing on to a new membership or service, actually completing this paperwork can be a hurdle. What seems like a simple enough task for most, can become a sticking point for some, that ends up stalling the process. So it’s critically important to reduce the friction at this point and make it as easy as possible for your customers to complete this paperwork and proceed.
Fast, efficient and paperless: PaySmart’s eDDR forms
PaySmart has gone the extra mile to make establishing the direct debit billing process even easier. Our electronic direct debit (eDDR) forms are easy to use and responsive to a variety of mobile technologies including smart phones and tablets. So it simplifies things for your customers and also reduces your administrative workload, giving you more time to focus on other tasks.
E-DDR forms take away the hassle, they’re submitted at the point of completion and there’s no duplicating the data entry at your end, thereby minimising the risk of error.
And if your prospective client doesn’t sign up on the spot, you can follow them up with a link taking them directly to the form.
The Australian Government cites replacing paper-based processes with electronic processes as one of a number of important steps offices can take to reduce the use of paper and improve productivity.
PaySmart is proud to be offering solutions like the e-DDR to our clients to help them run their businesses more efficiently – and that also benefit the environment. After all, if we can leave more trees for the important job of collecting and storing carbon, and less for paper production, that’s got to be a good thing.
