True North Mortgage is mortgage broker based out of Calgary. Their industry is a competitive one, and at stake is nothing less than people’s ability to buy a home, and providing a good return to investors. It’s all about money, so handling money with the highest level of professionalism is paramount.
In a competitive industry True North Mortgage needed a way to stick out, and making sure they could make payments in an efficient way — to employees, vendors and even clients — was important to their business. The company’s controller Srinivas Pabbaraju knew, no one wants to wait around for payments.
We want our employees and vendors taken care of. And we don’t believe in waiting for a month for paying our payees. We want to keep them happy, and we want them to stick with us.
They wanted a system that would allow them to get payments out quickly, as well as being simple for payees on the other end. Srinivas recalls using checks as payments at other organizations in the past, and how much time that would take.
We never knew when the checks got cashed, and we had to constantly keep looking at reconciling our bank accounts. With Plooto that’s one big thing, everything is reconciled, and we don’t have to keep worrying about if a check will be cashed.
As a company that looks to keep up with the latest technology the slow, inexact checking system was not even an option. Add to this the fact that True North requires two approvers on every payment, and checks become even more cumbersome.
Plooto’s online payment system truly simplifies payments for accountants like Srinivas. As invoices come in, they’re able to process all of the payments simply and easily. The two-approver process is handled incredibly easily, too: Approvals can be done online from anywhere in the world, so that payments can go out without delay. With Plooto, all the information that someone may need to approve a payment is at their fingertips.
Whatever we attach in QuickBooks comes into Plooto, so whoever is reviewing and approving — they can see it all online. You don’t have to go back to paperwork or go back to another part of the system, like the email, or the drive where we have the documents, or the accounting software. We can just go to Plooto and it has everything for us.
