Pencil works hand-in-hand with Xero to deliver solutions, including multi-invoice payment plans and partial payments, coupled with our industry leading clearing account and reconciling feature.
We were the first Pencil customer. We are in a complicated sector that includes selling goods & services, plus logistics, plus billing, plus collections, plus admin. Their knowledge has helped us not have to worry about billing, collections and a hell of a lot of admin, so we can focus on selling and delivering.

“Using Pencil Pay has allowed us to streamline our payments system. We no longer have to charge clients for payment manually. The fact all payments are integrated with XERO, eliminates another process we used to make, when reconciling these transactions. We are also able to pin-point our “trouble clients”, as we are notified of their inability to pay via email in real time. This helps us work with these clients and eliminate potential bad debts that might occur.”

“Chasing customers for payment was never something I enjoyed doing. Pencil not only automates this process, It handles credit applications, payments and has the ability to debit customers if they fail to make timely payments, which gives peace of mind. The Pencil team is great, they’re always quick to provide assistance when needed.”
