Epic online tool (Gentle Reminders Club) ensures prompt payment

It’s quite scary how well it works, because it’s such a simple idea.

The Gentle Reminders Club is an online platform that encourages ethical business behaviour when it comes to settling invoices on time, contributing to building a brand’s “reputation capital”.

A business can invite its new clients to join the club.

Upon sending them your invoice, the tool gently reminds them to pay.

It rewards prompt payment by giving the client a good rating.

If they fail to pay on time it will negatively affect their rating.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Scott Cundill.

Cundill is the owner of Majestic3, the tech partner behind The Gentle Reminders Club.
