What role has Payment Center played in accomplishing your goals, bettering your business, and making you more successful?

Payment Center is the ideal Salesforce extension when it comes to invoicing. I no longer have to deal with multiple databases because of its excellent integration with Salesforce.

What challenges were you looking at before implementing Kulturra Payment Center?

Because my previous invoicing software was not as well-integrated to Salesforce, I’ve been handling data from Salesforce and importing them to my invoicing software, which can be problematic, especially as my clientele grows. The multiple databases also made it challenging to track outstanding invoices.

Customers nowadays prefer the convenience of online payments, Kulturra’s easy online payment feature is one way of future-proofing my business.

How did Kulturra’s Payment Center help you solve those challenges?

Since Payment Center is a native Salesforce integration, it works seamlessly with my Salesforce database. As a result, I no longer have to deal with multiple databases, which has helped me save precious time.

Why would you recommend Kulturra Payment Center and their team?

The extension is easy to install and implement. The support team is also top-notch as they respond swiftly, even to the most basic queries.

Are there particular aspects of your process that are now easier because of Payment Center?

Payment reminders and reports of outstanding invoices helps me monitor my cash flow. In addition, creating invoices directly from Salesforce opportunities makes invoice creation easy and convenient. Less steps and easier to manage.

How much time has our solution allowed you to save overall in payment processing?

I’m saving 10-15 minutes per invoice. With the volume of my clients, Payment Center saves me multiple hours per week doing administrative tasks.

How much improvement has Payment Center help you in managing your invoicing process, payment collection, and financial reporting?

Invoicing and financial reporting have improved 100%. From outstanding to paid invoices, I can see everything in one place. This complete overview will make it easier for decision-making and managing my business finance.

On the other hand, my payment collection only partly improved as my existing clients prefer not to change our current arrangements through money transfers. However, a few clients are starting to prefer to pay via online payments which Payment Center handles perfectly.

We checked in with Sollis Health’s Business Analyst, Grace Conway, to find out how implementing Payment Center is moving their business forward to more seamless, convenient, and hassle-free transactions for their members.

What challenges were you looking at prior to implementing Kulturra Payment Center?

Prior to implementing Payment Center, the billing software we had in place was unwieldy, disjointed, and could not keep up with the needs of our growing business. It was a real limitation and constantly created errors that ate up a lot of our team’s time and energy to correct.

How did Kulturra's Payment Center help you solve those challenges?

Payment Center has proven to be an excellent solution for our annual subscription-based  business model’s requirements, and has provided us with more flexibility and efficiency than I could have imagined. We were able to customize it perfectly to suit our needs with great results.

Ascent Solutions

Ascent Solutions is an end-to-end Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution providing an enterprise class inventory and order management solution.

About Ascent Solutions

It goes beyond inventory management. Ascent has Operations 360 that extends the utility of the Salesforce Sales Cloud with real-time inventory, purchase, sales, rental orders, finance management, and even reverse logistics data. Ascent Solutions basically arms business owners with the tools to help them make the best decision for their business based on real-time, accurate, and accessible information.

The company also gives businesses the ability to focus on big decisions. By automating some of order management and fulfilment processes, business owners can have more time developing the business rather than simply running it.

What makes them truly stand out from the rest of the ERPs available on the Salesforce platform is in how quick and easy it is to deploy the Ascent Solutions system. There’s no need for expensive and laborious network infrastructure or hardware set-up.

To help Ascent Solutions send automated invoices and accept a wider range of payment options, they decided to use Kulturra’s Payment Center.

Kulturra caught up with Ascent Solutions, to talk about how Payment Center has helped their company in giving their customers a truly hassle-free experience in dealing with the company.

According to Ascent Solutions Co-Founder and President, Shaun McInerny, processing credit card information was a sore point prior to deploying Kulturra’s Payment Center

“Ascent would have to enter a customer’s credit card information directly into the payment processor’s website. Then we would have to close out the invoice in Ascent and enter the payment details into our accounting system, Xero.”

Kulturra’s Payment Center made the process much easier by managing and safeguarding customer information. This allowed Ascent to enter customer information only once in the beginning and just retrieve the information when it’s needed again at the next billing cycle.

McInerny also likes Payment Center’s automated invoicing features. It streamlines the invoicing and payment processing which leads to savings in both time and effort.

“We have automated all of our monthly and quarterly recurring customers. There is zero human intervention with our recurring clients. Credit cards are processed automatically and invoices sent without any human intervention. If this process was still manual, we would need to dedicate 4 to 5 hours to complete the monthly tasks.”

If freeing up some precious time from draining work in invoicing and payment processing is important to you, then let Kulturra’s Payment Center take over for you. Contact us now!

About Smithbucklin

Smithbucklin is an association management and services company more organizations turn to than any other. They serve a wide range of industries and sectors such as trade associations, professional societies, technology communities, charitable organizations, and corporations.

They also provide a number of highly specialized professional services for specific functions and long-term projects by matching the right level of staff expertise and experience to client organization programs, activities, and objectives.

To help them handle their diverse payment options, Smithbucklin chose Kulturra’s Payment Center back in 2019 to take care of their payment processing needs. We caught up with Smithbucklin Sales Services Vice President Tom Myers to talk to him about the partnership.

What challenges were you looking to solve when you found Payment Center?

One of the services Smithbucklin offers is providing trade shows, events, and convention management. As such, they’ve had to handle booth-space payment processing from a lot of different organizations. With the varied ways that each organization handled their finances, it was difficult to process them all in one place. Kulturra’s Payment Center, therefore, was the perfect choice.

“Our unique multi-client Salesforce environment has been a challenge for many of the applications we investigated in the AppExchange. Payment Center is a Salesforce app we selected to automate the invoicing of vendor partners for the booth space, sponsorships or advertising they purchased from one of our client organizations.”

How has Kulturra Payment Center helped you solve the challenges?

While it was Payment Center’s versatility that initially drew them in, Smithbucklin and Thomas were pleasantly surprised that the whole system functioned so seamlessly. In a company that dealt with a copious amount of organizations, this seamless integration went a really long way

“Payment Center’s architecture is flexible and was able to support our requirements to manage invoicing on behalf of different clients whom we sell for and service. It has allowed us to move seamlessly from closing opportunities to invoicing to tracking payments, credit memos, etc. all within the same system. More efficient than re-entering order details into a separate invoicing system.”

Why would you recommend Payment Center and Kulturra?

There’s a whole lot more to like about Payment Center. Mr. Myers says that Payment Center’s versatility combined with an excellent post-sale support and ease-of-implementation make it an excellent value for money purchase for their business.

“What we liked best about Kulturra’s Payment Center is that it works with custom projects. It’s also priced competitively while also being one of the best in terms of ease of implementation and post-sale support.”

Driver Defense Team

Driver Defense Team

We are Illinois-based law group that specialize in traffic-related cases

About Driver Defense Team

Driver Defense Team is an Illinois-based law group that specialize in traffic-related cases. The team consists of lawyers and legal assistants always ready to protect the legal rights of their clients in an array of scenarios.

The law group commonly gives advice on petty and misdemeanor traffic violations. However, the team is also fully equipped to handle more serious traffic cases such as DUI and driving under a suspended or revoked license.

The DDT Law Group has a lot on their plate in defending the legal rights of Illinois residents that come from different walks of life. It’s important, therefore, that invoicing and billing are not a hindrance to their workflow. Because of this need for versatility, they chose to deploy Kulturra’s Payment Center in their day-to-day operations.

We had a chat with Derek Martin, one of the firm’s partners, about how Kulturra Payment Center has made it possible for them to focus on their clients.

Derek Martin

Attorney/Partner

Driver Defense Team

What challenges were you trying to overcome before using Kulturra Payment Center?

The Driver Defense Team attracts clients from a diverse demographic. As such, their client’s preferred payment methods vary wildly. This makes Invoicing and billing complicated.

I implemented two other popular payment apps before testing Payment Center. They were never quite right. Our attorneys had difficulty billing clients on our previous Salesforce Financial app, as it could not handle our different payment options (cash, credit card, checks, money order, etc). We’d have to make 25 clicks just to accept a cash payment.

How has Payment Center helped you in solving the challenges?

Payment Center’s ability to handle an assortment of payment options attracted the Driver Defense Team. It gave the firm the ability to process their client’s payments with a few simple clicks.

Payment Center’s out-of-the-box features allow down payments and multiple installments that suits our needs. We now have a simplified way of billing our clients. It works perfectly and easily on all different payment options (credit card, check, cash, money orders, etc) including customized payment plans with different installment amounts. Also, we now have a good visibility of our cases, allowing us to see which one is paid, closed or still open. It allows for easier tracking, automatic notifications to our clients, and better insights on the status of all the cases we are handling.

Payment Center is the perfect solution for our law firm. It is extremely versatile which allows us to focus more on protecting our clients.

Why would you recommend Payment Center and Kulturra?

Versatility might have been what attracted DDT to Payment Center but it was Kulturra’s hands-on approach to solving the law group’s problems that made them fully commit. Kulturra’s team worked hard to provide the precise solution to the law firm’s unique requirements.

Kulturra’s Payment Center was very “out of the box” and after a phone call with the Payment Center support team, they customized it to be perfect for our needs. I cannot recommend them enough!

Custom music lessons for all ages and levels

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.
