Exploring the many features of Clients & Profits that help you work smarter, faster, and more profitable.
Clients, how shall I bill thee?
Clients can be billed for anything you do -- whether you’re billing an estimate, an advance, a retainer, a service charge, or a job’s final costs. A/R invoices are seamlessly integrated with jobs and costs, so billing is particularly quick and easy -- and can be mostly automatic.
Every kind of client invoice -- including deposits, retainers, advances, credits, and discounts -- are added into Accounts Receivable. Clients & Profits can even invoice clients for things you may have forgotten to bill. Like finding money under your couch cushions, the best surprises are those that put money into your pocket. And no agency management software can do that like Clients & Profits.
Sales Commissions Made Easy
The painful process of tracking and calculating sales commissions for AEs is completely automated in Clients & Profits. Sales commissions are based on job billings for clients, jobs, and job tasks that are marked as commissionable. Commissions are calculated for either account executives and business development (bizdev) executives, or both. Commission rates are set by job type and can be a percentage or flat-rate spiff. Individual job tasks and invoice line items can be made commissionable, which Clients & Profits uses to calculate commission amounts on reports.

Detecting agency fraud
Mike Ferguson from the C&P Helpdesk joins us this week to discuss how Clients & Profits can be used to determine if your agency is a victim of internal fraud. You can rely on the usual suspects like accounting anomalies, an employee living beyond their means, failing to look you in the eye, coming in early, staying late, or never taking a vacation, but that won’t give you the truth or the bottom line. That’s where Clients & Profits comes in.
