Cashfree, India’s leading payments and API banking solutions company has partnered with Deskera, a Singapore-based global leader in cloud-based solutions for small and mid-sized businesses.
Deskera offers a cloud-based suite of integrated enterprise management applications that help automate everyday business tasks such as bookkeeping, stock management, payroll processing, workforce management, and more.
This partnership aims at helping over 5 lakh businesses on the Deskera platform who can choose from over 120 payment modes, including UPI, net banking, wallets, and others, to process instant payment collections and reconciliation, using Cashfree’s Payments Links.
Through the partnership between Deskera and Cashfree, the entire invoice to payment process takes a fraction of the time previously taken, as it is automated. An invoice is created using Deskera and it is emailed to a customer with a payment link generated by Cashfree.
GST has applied automatically to the invoice amount. The partnership also allows reminder emails to be sent automatically by the system for any unpaid invoices along with the payment link from Cashfree. As soon as the payment is made by the customer, the payment details are automatically updated in Deskera, the company said.
“We understand that collecting payments has never been easy for SMEs and the pandemic has made it difficult to make in-person follow-ups.
Today, we are excited to partner with Deskera and offer more than 5 lakh businesses on their platform a one-link solution for accounts receivable. This will offer the simplest and fastest way to hasten business transactions while empowering the SME ecosystem in India,” said Reeju Datta, Co-founder of Cashfree.
