I was in a meeting today where Beth Deavila, HP UK Officejet Brand Manager was discussing printers. There was much talk of how businesses today need colour printing, what features could support small businesses and how modern high end inkjet printers are in some cases more economical to run than low end laser printers.
Whilst the printers available today are feature rich, Beth had one simple tip which all small businesses should be aware of regardless how old their printer may be:
When you print invoices highlight the due date and/or the amount outstanding in colour and your invoices will tend to get paid faster.
It’s such an obvious thing to do and yet it’s an idea I’d certainly never thought of. However I can promise the next person that gets an invoice from me will have the amount due highlighted in red.
