Jason Sagebiel, founder of Sage Music®, talks about how they overcame their invoicing challenges with the help of Payment Center.

Sage Music Founder, Jason Sagebiel

Jason Sagebiel is not like any music teacher you may have encountered before. After suffering a traumatic brain injury in the Iraq war, his cognitive and motor skills were left impaired. He turned to music during his recovery and coincidentally began the next chapter in his life, as a music teacher.

Inspired by the research and therapy that helped him to recover from his injuries, he developed a pedagogy and approach to learning and teaching music using techniques based on the science and psychology of learning.

His inspiring story has been documented on TV, radio, and in two books: Jon Pieslak’s SoundTargets, and J. Martin Daughtry’s Listening To War.

How did Payment Center solved your challenges?

Installing Payment Center is quick and easy, and hooking it up to Authorize.net took no time at all. Our Sales Team really enjoys the simplicity of sending invoices from within Salesforce, and allowing customers to click on the Pay Now link within the invoice to make a payment. After a payment is processed the customer gets a receipt, and everything in Salesforce is updated to reflect this. If needed, the customer can request a payment plan, which the user selects in Salesforce, and it will automatically bill the customer based on the terms of the payment plan.

Payment Center also has a nice management area within Salesforce where any of our Sales Admins can go to make changes to the app.

Move For Hunger

Mobilizing the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger

Fighting Hunger, One Move at a Time

More than 40 million Americans face hunger every day. Meanwhile, 40% of the food produced in the United States every year is wasted. Move For Hunger offers a sustainable solution to this inexcusable paradox.

Their network of socially-responsible relocation companies provides their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also volunteer to host/assist with community food drives, participate in cause marketing campaigns, and create employee giving programs. Since 2009, they have delivered more than 21.1 million pounds of food to food banks across the United States and Canada. That’s the equivalent of 17.7 million meals.

And they are just getting started.

Payment Center for Move For Hunger

Move For Hunger has been using Kulturra Payment Center since 2018.

As their growing network expands, their accounting team needed a solution for creating invoices that is not cumbersome and won't take so much of their time. According to Adam Lowy, Move For Hunger's Executive Director, Kulturra Payment Center has been a gamechanger for their organization!

Gamechanger

“This app has literally saved hours of time for my team members - giving us more time to focus on the work we’re doing to fight hunger across the country. Customer service has also been super fast, with some additional great resources located on their website. I’d definitely recommend to anyone looking to streamline their invoicing process.“
Adam Lowy
Founder & Executive Director

Here are other team members that are using Payment Center on what they think about the app and how it helped them on a daily basis.​

The Best Payment App!​​

“This app has been a LIFESAVER. Before Kulturra Payment Center, our team had to inefficiently create an invoice manually. When your team has a few hundred invoices to send, this can get very tedious and time consuming! In using the Payment Center, we have been able to cut down on our administrative time for invoices, and get back to doing our jobs more efficiently.“
Bridget Foley
Director of Multi-family programs

Saves us so much time as an organization!​

“Previous to using this, we had to manually create PDF invoices as well as enter the information into Salesforce. While it doesn’t sound like this would take up so much time, the Kulturra Payment Center has made a world of difference! It has allowed our non-profit organization to utilize our time much more efficiently.”
Kelly DePinho
Program Director

Very helpful app!

“Our org has been using this app and it has truly made a difference in how we manage invoicing. We are able to easily create, send, and follow up with our donations. Love how they are connected to the opportunity and do not need to be uploaded as an attachment. Thanks for making our lives more efficient so we are able to focus on fighting hunger!”

HAVEN Home

ALWAYS AT HOME WITH HAVEN

Where Design, Function + Service Unite For Powerful Results

HAVEN is a home staging firm with over 11 years of experience transforming spaces into memorable havens. With a focus on Chicago's urban neighborhoods, they offer a warehouse of on-trend designer curated furnishings that help sell properties faster and for more money. HAVEN offer a variety of services, including vacant, partially occupied, and occupied staging along with occupied and video consultations.

They stage empty properties with their own on-trend furnishings or combine their inventory with clients' own furniture — condos to single family homes, entry-level to high-end.

They pride themselves on clear communication and thorough site visits. They take detailed measurements, notes and photos, so each of their team members can interchangeably work on any part of the process.

They use the latest technology to ensure a smooth transaction — from e-signature to online payment.

Unlike most Chicago staging companies, HAVEN offers a month-to-month contract and provides the best staging product for a swift sale, which results in fewer mortgage payments and carrying costs.

"We have been using Kulturra Payment Center for the past 18 months. The Kulturra team is so helpful in answering our questions. They're always willing to jump on a call to further clarify solutions for us and help us brainstorm. They are a great partner in our business operations. "
Deniz Hedden
Operations Manager

According to Deniz Hedden, HAVEN's operations manager, invoicing and payments took up a substantial amount of their day-to-day time.

“Invoices had been handled manually (PDF) for 10 years; we were looking to automate the process to free up the owner of the company's time as well as resolve outstanding balances. The owner felt she was in a position of a debt collector because payments were not automated. It took up a substantial amount of her day-to-day, not allowing her to focus on big picture business items.”

After implementing Payment Center, they've collected more outstanding cash and substantially cut their time doing invoicing and payments.

“We resolved over $60k in outstanding cash at any given time by automating credit card payments using Kulturra Payment Center. Clients were always happy to leave a credit card on file, we just did not have the means with which to do so prior. Our day-to-day invoicing runs in a much more automated manner with Kulturra Payment Center. We set up recurring payments as new projects arise and just monitor ongoing payments.”

"Resolved $60K in outstanding cash at any given time."
