    What does IODM do?

    1. What is IODM Accounts Receivable software? - The Accounts Receivable Reminder software allows Business to upload their debtor details and send reminder letters and true debt collection letters to their debtors, all with SMS/TXT alerts. Once a debtor is loaded a reminder letter is sent to your debtor, If the debt is still unpaid after 7 days, another reminder letter is produced which is far stronger in its wording. After the 2 reminder letters have been sent, they system will then generate 2 true debt collection letters, scheduled after 7 day intervals. The letters are the same as any debt collection company would use. In fact the letters are from a leading debt Collection Company in Australia.

    2. What happens if the debt is still not paid after I send the letters? - If after the 4 letters have been sent over a 28 day period, the IODM system will automatically notify the mercantile company that the debt is still unpaid. The mercantile company will contact you directly to discuss options you have in continuing pursuit of the debt until it is paid.

    3. How are the letters generated? - Once your debtors are loaded, click on the SELECT, and then SEND. Your letters will be generated to be printed on your local printer and/or emailed to your debtors depending on your selection.

    4. How are SMS/TXT alerts sent? - The SMS alerts are generated when you create a letter. However, the debtor must have a valid Mobile/Cell telephone number in order to send the alert.

    5. Do I need to enter my debtor details each time I wish to generate a letter? - No, once a debtor is loaded into the IODM database, it resides in the database. There is no need to re-enter their debtor details.

    What are the costs?

    1. How much does IODM cost? - The IODM system has various plans based on the number of active debtors you as a customer have, you can select one plan and if you need to upgrade or downgrade your plan you can do so at any time.

    2. What Credit Cards are accepted? - IODM will accept Visa and Mastercard at the present time.

    3. How oftem am I charged by IODM? - The IODM billing cycle is for 28 days, your credit card will be charged every 28 days for using the system. You can terminate using the system at anytime.

    4. Is there another way of paying for the subscription? - Currently only Credit Cards are accepted.

    5. Are there any contracts or commission? - No, there are no contracts, no commissions from IODM, however, if your debtor is passed to the enforcement agency, commissions will apply.

    6. What are the costs for using the debt collection company? - The Mercantile company will discuss the various charges and options available to you if the debt is still unpaid after using the IODM system. You are not obligated to use the Mercantile company.

    7. What are the costs for SMS/TXT alerts? - SMS/TXT alerts cost 11c for each SMS/TXT sent. These will be billed separately by IODM to you billed every month and are NOT included in your subscription plan. You will be billed for the SMS/TXTs that you send. If your debtor does not have a mobile or cell phone telephone number, no SMS/TXT will be sent.

    When should I start using the system?

    1. When shouldI start using the system? - IODM recommends using the system 35 days after invoice being issued. Remember the longer the time it takes to be paid the less likely you will be paid. Also, you will reduce your overdraft costs.

    2. I want to use the system but afraid that I will alienate my customer - Some businesses are concerned sending reminder letters and debt collection letters will make your customer angry. Simply explain that your business has a new company policy and everyone will be asked to pay after 35 days. It’s just company policy. The first 2 letters generated does not offend and is a simple request for payment, the second 2 letters are true debt collection letters on a debt collection letterhead. This means you ‘mean business’ in being paid in a timely manner.

    3. How often should I use the system? - As stated earlier, start sending the letter after 35 days from invoice date. A lot of companies use IODM effectively by nominating some time on the same day of the week every week. For example 10 am on Mondays. This will cycle the time to enable you to upload new debtors at the same time every week and review the older debtors that should be sent the other letters or passed to collections every 7 days.

    4. What should I do when I get paid? - Simply logon to IODM, go to “Manage” locate the debtors and change the Next Action to “Settled”, you can also set the date the settlement occurred. Click “Save changes” and it’s done. If your using Xero or any other bookkeeping system we have integrated with, you debtors will be automatically be settled.

    5. Is there something else I could read in better managing my debtors? - Yes, download the white paper “Better Managing your debtors”, this document discusses how you can improve you debt management.

    6. Is there a way I can work out how much my debtors are costing me? - Yes, simply use the “Calculate how much you will save” on the web page. This will assist you in understanding how much your debtors are costing your business!
