We measure time from the moment you open a new invoice form until you save the invoice. This allows us to estimate how many seconds it takes to create a single invoice. The results are presented in a histogram. The vertical axis shows the individual time periods in seconds. The horizontal axis is the number of invoices placed in a given range.
The results show that most invoices were created in less than 30 seconds. Creating invoices in such a short time requires either a big hurry or a good preparation. We encourage you to the second way. Good preparation can be achieved in a simple way. Make your life easier. First of all, your company should have all the data needed for the invoice. The most important of course is the name of your company and the full address of the company. The address, and in particular the country, will be able to suggest what tax rates are applicable in a given country. Many countries also have special numbers that identify the company in terms of tax. Filling them is often crucial to invoice.
To improve the process of invoice creation it is useful to specify the default settings. These settings include the tax rate, the basic language on the invoice, the billing currency, the invoice numbering method, the payment method, and the number of days to be paid. Each of these options can be changed while creating an invoice. However, the parameter once set, in most cases, will save the time needed to prepare the invoice.
In addition to the settings related to your company, your client's data is equally important. If your client regularly uses your services or has previously placed an order, you can significantly reduce the time it takes to create an invoice for him. To do this, all you have to do is enter your customer details into the customer list. Thanks to this, creating an invoice is enough to select the right customer from the list of clients available in the database.
