Going green is not just a trend, it is a smart decision that both consumers and businesses benefit from. Ironically, many of the
environmentally beneficial solutions are also economically beneficial.
E-billing is a prime example of a business solution that works to save
money and the environment.
It can cost hundreds of dollars to mail out invoices, receipts, and
other bills to your clients. First you have to pay for the production
of this material, and then you have to pay for the distribution.

Clearly, the money saved on production and distribution of paper
billing gives e-billing a large financial advantage over alternative
E-billing is obviously beneficial to the environment, but there are
other benefits of e-billing to be aware of.
The environmental benefits of e-billing also affect the perspective of
a customer. When a business offers the option of paperless billing,
this builds rapport with an environmentally conscious consumer and can
help to increase customer satisfaction, retention, and even referrals.
Not only does e-billing cut costs and environmental waste; but
paperless billing offers a whole new element to billing that simple ink
and paper can’t provide. The end user benefits are limitless. More
information can be made available in a statement provided through the
internet, and there is less confusion on the clients end. (Nobody likes
to feel confused over a bill!)
In fact, when the right information is given, you will also save money
by cutting back on customer service calls!
A good e-billing service provider will offer useful templates and
resources to ensure that an end user receives the most important
information (based on independent research.)
One of the greatest benefits to paperless billing is how quickly an
e-bill can reach the client. Instead of waiting days, even weeks, for
the information to arrive… a valued client may instead receive
important information in a matter of seconds, or minutes after being
sent. (The quicker a bill or invoice is received, the quicker a payment
Paperless billing saves environmental waste. Both businesses and
consumers are participating actively in “going green” not because it is
a trend, but because it is important to conserve and reduce waste.
E-billing is a green business solution that will build rapport and
increase sales by increasing customer satisfaction.
By cutting back on the costs of production and distribution of paper
billing, you will save a whopping amount of money and time. Important
information will reach clients much quicker if you use paperless
billing, and each transaction can be completed in a shorter amount of
time than would be possible with paper billing.
Finally, e-billing allows a client to receive all of the important
information they need so there is no confusion over a statement. The
benefits of e-billing are endless!
