For millions of businesses trying to go paperless, the main source of pain was a 10-inch-wide slot in their front door. As long as checks, contracts, bills, tax notices and documents for signature kept coming through via paper mail, these businesses were stuck in the last century with obsolete processes that chewed up time, burned up money and tied up owners and managers with paperwork. Then Earth Class Mail came along.
If those problems sound familiar to you, this month’s “No Check” CFO not only understands your pain, she knows how to solve it. As part of the management team at Earth Class Mail, Stacey Lee helps paper-bound businesses escape the “pmail” (paper mail) trap every day.
“Our customers never have to open an envelope or handle a paper document,” Lee says. Earth Class Mail receives your pmail for you, scans it and stores PDFs of the mail you want to see. They securely store or shred all your pmail – your choice. Checks received are deposited automatically. They even accept parcels and forward them to you or your customers.
Now accountants and attorneys can take care of their clients from anywhere they have email access – even while on vacation. Internet entrepreneurs can manage their paper mail the same way they manage the rest of business – online. And all kinds of marketers can now handle inbound customer mail such as applications, survey responses and coupon redemptions without handling the paper.
So how does Earth Class protect itself from living the same paper mail nightmares they save their customers from? “We couldn’t survive if we didn’t make maximum use of cloud-based services ourselves,” says Lee.
“For instance, while we’re busy eliminating the need to open, handle and file paper documents for our customers, Bill.com is eliminating those same hassles for us when it comes to accounts payable and receivable.”
The way Earth Class customers can deal with their paper mail from anywhere, Bill.com lets Stacey Lee manage bill approvals and payments, invoicing and collections – even cash flow – from wherever she happens to be.
“I’ve paid the bills from Mexico and probably six different European countries,” she says. “I do a lot of my work from outside the office.”
There’s a new generation of tech-savvy business leaders using ground-breaking technology to replace time-consuming, paper-based processes everywhere in their businesses. If pmail is the only reason you haven’t joined them yet, let Earth Class Mail and Bill.com set you free.
