He is a results focused senior executive who combines entrepreneurial vision with strong business acumen to improve the bottom line with new technology. As CEO of Link4 Australia, he actively supports the efficiency and security of eInvoicing amongst business owners.

This week, thousands of invoices were sent via email purporting to be from MYOB. Can we protect ourselves from these types of Malware attacks? Yes we can. And at the same time we will increase efficiency in the business.

Sadly, email has become a tool used by scammers and spammers the world over. Attaching an invoice invites users to click on it to find out what it is all about and then a trojan is released. No doubt we can expect to see more of this type of approach as time goes by.

You can protect yourself by using eInvoicing. You don’t need to worry about scam emails as your invoices are delivered in a secure and protected environment.

“eInvoicing means you only receive invoices from people that you trust. Suppliers that you have approved. The invoice is delivered direct to your accounting system and avoids the need to be concerned about suspect attachments or malicious emails,” says Link4 founder and CEO Robin Sands.

“Efficiencies are also gained as processing time of invoices is dramatically reduced and is more accurate than traditional methods,” he explains. “Link4 has been designed for small to medium businesses. It keeps things simple with nothing to install.”

But have a look around to see what eInvoicing options suit your business best. Take advantage of free trials to experience the systems.

Switching to eInvoicing now will save you time, reduce errors and make your invoicing process much more secure. As scammers increase, eInvoicing needs to be considered by all business owners.
