Why use the Active Protect Digital Monitoring Logo? By using our “Monitored by” logo on all your invoices, statements and reminder letters you are protecting yourself against bad payers by harnessing the reputation of our mercantile collection agency. This is an extremely powerful protection tool and cash flow booster as your customers know that they are being watched.
How does the Active Protect Digital Monitoring Logo help me? It dramatically impacts the average number of debtor days outstanding and gets you paid faster. This results in increased cash flow and fewer bad debts.
Is it worth it? What type of business benefits most? Let’s take a typical small business turning over $300,000 per year, offering 14-day credit terms and, on average, being paid at the 30-day mark. This isn’t at all unusual in today’s economy.
Every debtor day for that business is worth an average of $824. Reducing the overdue debtor days by just 1, from 14 to 13, means that ActiveProtect will pay for itself 4 times over in the first instance.
If you turn over more than $300,000 or your average debtor days are more than 14, ActiveProtect is likely to return even more to you in the first year. It will go on to protect you against bad debts that you might otherwise have faced. All in all, it’s an excellent investment.
When do I use the Active Protect Digital Monitoring Logo? You should use our “Monitored by” logo on all your invoices, statements and reminder correspondence.
What risks do you run by not using our Active Protect Digital Monitoring Logo? All businesses that offer credit need to minimize their exposure to bad debts and maintain their cash flow. Our “Monitored by” logo gives your business the tool and impact that helps reduce credit risk and increase cash flow.
What is the contract period for the use of the Active Protect Digital Monitoring Logo? The monitoring logo is designed to be used on an ongoing basis. You are granted a licence to use the monitoring logo for an initial minimum period of 12 months. You can keep using it as many times as you want during your licence term.
Why is the date on the logo? We place a date on the “Monitored by” logo to let your clients know that the monitoring contract is current and they are being watched. This gives the logo the status it needs to compel your clients to pay on time.

What is Team Viewer? Team Viewer allows us to remotely control your computer so to support you in the installation of the logos. Team Viewer is a free program that can be downloaded at www.teamviwer.com. It doesn’t allow us to access your computer at any time other than your support session.
