Legal services businesses such as law firms, mediators and arbitrators, as well as any legal related support business are increasingly trying to leverage technology in order to streamline operations. Platforms that enable scheduling, automated emails and full function office management applications continue to improve the efficiency of each private practice and business. But there is one, often overlooked, technology that has a direct impact on profitability : Online BillPay
Ready to expedite collections with Online Bill Pay?
Enabling your business with Online billpay is easier than you think! Most offices can add this feature to their website without ever bothering a website developer. All you need is a space to put a “Pay Here” button, and you’re commerce enabled.
Following are Three reasons why your legal service business website needs to offer Online BillPay:
- Faster payments – Allowing flexible payment options has proven to increase payments earlier or on schedule. In fact, most clients will view a reminder to pay on their mobile device, allowing for revenue capture whenever you patients are ready to pay.
- Save Office Time – If clients are paying their legal bills online, they are not calling your office, leaving messages or spending 5-10 minutes capturing the credit card data over the phone or in front of our staff.
- Secure Card data capture – By capturing payment on your business website prior to office visits, you’re creating a secure payment profile for each client which can be used in the future. Combined with the right financial template, you can streamline operations to the point where you never ask for payment.
The most interesting fact about Online Bill Pay is the fact that most legal practices do not offer this incredibly efficient collection option. Unlike other payment options, providing the ability to pay on line does not have to add a layer of compliance or complication. In fact, by leveraging the right solution, on line billpay can be part of an overall strategy to completely remove your business from the scope of PCI Compliance.
