ONE: COMMUNICATE TO CLIENTS
- The first step is communicating with your customer base the change in process and clearly stating time frames and the steps required. Definitely consider a targeted completion date, but make sure your clients have ample to time to comply.
- Communication can be facilitated by:
- Creating a form letter to send to all existing clients
- Drafting a email communication to send to all existing clients
TWO: KEY DATA POINTS TO RETRIEVE
- In the communication, request a specific email address for delivery of your invoices and make sure to record in the customer record.
- Establish two-way communication by setting up a specific ‘accounts receivable’ email address and/or a phone number that allows your clients to use to capture missing email addresses, address questions and confirm setup.
