Why was it created?
The founders of Link4 met with several businesses to understand their biggest issues and one topic came up time and again - invoices. A few variations on theme were put forward, but the basic question was: “How do we get invoices into our cloud accounting system easier?”
For example, one restaurant receives thousands of pages of invoices each year. A lot of manual entry was involved initially, but then they employed an app to speed up the process. But it still took a lot of time and they had all the paper invoices to deal with. Wouldn’t it be easier if the invoices were delivered electronically?
On the other side of the equation, suppliers were spending thousands of dollars printing invoices, while others were sending PDFs via email to their customers (and the emails weren’t always actioned in a timely manner, and some were deleted or got lost).
So Link4 was created to make life easier for suppliers sending invoices, and to simplify accounting for customers. A win for both sides.
