A New Years Poem 2: Small Businesses, Big Impacts

13 Jan

Bilbus Cashflow Hub helps businesses and their accountants & bookkeepers. To get our creativity rolling for 2014, we  composed 2 poems (or the closest thing to poetry we could come up with!) celebrating accounting & finance and SMEs/SMBs.

Let my orders flow

Storm, rain or snow

Our contracts fair

Procurement teams compare

No price squeeze, when big customers sneeze

Our invoices go, without fuss, cost or extra workflow

Validated quickly, verified efficiently

Keep us informed, spare us time in calls to follow

Convenient payments sent, promptly on the morrow

Early payment bests late payment, when discounts stay shallow

Treat us fair, treat us right

Don’t fake the recounts just because you can

And while we depend on and cherish your custom

Remember we’re a small cog

In the world’s chain of supply.

Clients find me

 

Working weekday, weekends and nights

 

Quotes I prepare, come across just right

 

With data whose chaos with order I charge

 

A value of rescue

 

Returns, accounts, visibility once hard

 

My diligence and efficiency

 

Keeps the business in flow

 

And seizing opportunities

 

My customers grow

 

I’m there on schedule, every week, fortnight or month

 

Wading through receivables, confirming balances and flows

 

Doing payroll, taxes, cashflow, many spreadsheets in tow

 

I’m migrating to the cloud while competitors take it slow

 

Perhaps I help with a business plan, or proposal for loan

 

Sometimes a partner, sometimes the owner of workflow

 

Bringing life to the detail

 

Vital to the business, I keep clients in the know

Happy 2014!

2 Jan

Northern hemisphere winters don’t always deliver sunny days as often as we’d like, but where I am,  it’s been a lovely day filled with optimism for the coming year! We hope everyone’s had a restful break and is ready to embrace all that 2014 gives us.

We’ve been working hard over the past few months to improve our cashflow scenarios and automated receivables tracking and we’ve responded eagerly to feedback on how we can make the Cashflow Hub more useful on a daily basis. We have new features coming out this month, and we’ll keep you posted.  Since it’s the start of a new year, we’ve also composed a couple of salutations which we’ll post separately.

For now, here’s to a peaceful, prosperous and insightful 2014!
