Top 5 Reasons Why Home Business Should Use Check Writing Software

by admin 8. August 2011 05:35

A lot of small businesses are running out from home, garage, and basement even an abandoned warehouse. However with low-cost technology, even a business of one can looks big and act big. Here are the Top 5 Reasons Why Home Business Should Use Check Writing Software.

 

Check Printing & writing software main page

#1 Increase Efficiency.

 

How many times have you had to write a check quickly but of course it just so happens you are out and your new order has not arrived yet. With the right software a new one is simply a matter of going to your computer and filing out the necessary spaces. This allows you to no longer have to worry about having checks around since all you need is your computer no matter if that computer is a desktop or a laptop. Instead of dealing with each check individually and taking valuable time out of your day you have the program write individual or multiple checks quickly.

 

#2 Save money


Using blank check stock is much less expensive than having checks pre-printed. Plus, if you ever have to change banks or change your address or other information on your checks, you don’t have to have new checks printed—you just change the information in your check printing software and it prints the new information on the checks.

 

 

#3 Control over Design.

 

Home business owners always seem to worry about how their logo will look as well as proper placement. Using software that writes checks on your computer will allow you to import whatever logo you want as well as allow you to customize color and logo placement easily and quickly. Your specific signature can easily be modified and placed exactly how and where you want it. This level of control over all aspects of your check give you total control that you would not be able to get without using software.

 

#4 Security.

 

We are all conscience of security these days. Keeping your old checks in a folder in an office someplace is often not the best place for them. When you implement a software solution for your business you no longer have to worry about security. All back checks can be saved and password protected from prying eyes. You can also easily backup all that information to an external hard drive which for an extra layer of security. Some checks will need to have an MICR or Magnetic Ink Character Recognition line printed on the front of the check. The right program will have that capability to add MICR line when you need it.

 

#5 Management.

 

Switching to the right program allows you to centralize all your important financial information in one place. Design, security, and writing can happen all at one workstation without the need to have multiple folders in order to sort and manage your checks. Looking for past checks is a snap using a computer with the right program. A quick search will yield any check written to a specific client with all relevant information. Software is the best way to manage all of your needs and centralize your work easily and quickly. Registering checks as well as having multiple bank accounts tied to the program give a level of bookkeeping that can be a great benefit to many small businesses. 

A program designed to write checks is a real benefit to the small business owner. Saving time and increasing your efficiency will easily make moving to a check writing software program the right move. Choose a program that has the right features that fit your businesses needs but also allows for future needs that may arise as your business grows. One MICR-capable check printing software title that is popular with small businesses is ezCheckPrinting from halfpricesoft.com. Buy from a reputable company as they will off you the best level of help and support should issues arise.

Business Success with Free Products? Unique Marketing Partnership Grows Halfpricesoft By Leaps and Bounds

by admin 18. April 2011 16:55

Giving products away for free may seem like a strange way to grow a business, but for Louisville, Ky.-based Halfpricesoft.com, it has been the key to success.

 

Having sold fewer than a hundred copies of their payroll and check printing software titles in the first years of business, software developer Halfpricesoft.com now sells thousands of copies each year now by giving away their full-feature versions through partnerships.

 

Halfpricesoft.com launched in 2003 with a focus on creating payroll tax software solutions that is easy to learn and affordable for small businesses yet full-featured. The company found it difficult to market software as a start-up, since customers were unfamiliar with the company, and sold only a handful of copies in its first year.

 

With the knowledge that their software offered features and capability comparable to high-end business software, Halfpricesoft offered a 30-day free trial period for its products believing that when users tried the payroll and check printing software, they would realize the value offered by Halfpricesoft.com and purchase the full-use license. While the free trial period did increase sales, they remained far below expectations.

 

In 2008, the company produced a "Lite" version of its check writing software, with limited capabilities on some features, such as custom check designing. The company offered the new product for free on software download sites and supported it with an intense press release campaign.

 

"Everyone likes free stuff," said Halfpricesoft.com founder Dr. Ge. "When we launched ezCheckPrinting Lite for free, we suddenly started getting hundreds of downloads each month."

 

But while downloads of the free software were plentiful, conversions to the full-featured paid version were minimal. The search for an effective marketing solution continued.

 

Seeing that free software was popular with small-business customers, Dr. Ge and his team looked for a way to utilize this powerful marketing tool that would result in sales for their premium products. The answer came in late 2008 when they discovered TrialPay.

 

With TrialPay, Halfpricesoft.com is able to offer the full-featured single-user version of ezCheckPrinting, ezCheckPersonal and its other software titles for free when customers purchase a product from another company. In 2009, the company ceased to offer the "lite" version of ezCheckPrinting and used TrialPay to offer the product for free. TrialPay advertisers pay for the software when customers purchase their products or services.

 

"We sell thousands of copies each year now," said Dr. Ge. "It's a win-win-win-win situation: the customer gets free product, we make sales, the TrialPay advertiser makes sales, and TrialPay gets commissions."

 

Halfpricesoft.com took full advantage of its partnership with TrialPay by launching a public relations campaign featuring the TrialPay offer in press releases and newsletters. The company also highlights the TrialPay offer on its website, encouraging customers to get Halfpricesoft.com products for free.

 

Currently, several products are offered for free through TrialPay at www.halfpricesoft.com, including:

- ezCheckPersonal personal check writing software

- ezTimeSheet, computer-based time clock software for tracking employee hours

- blank check stock for use with ezCheckPrinting, ezPaycheck and ezCheckPersonal software

- Stock for printing W2, W3, 1099 and 1096 forms

6 Reasons To Business Should Use Check Writing Software

by admin 30. March 2011 04:56

Did you know that you can save a lot of time, money and hassle using check printing software capable of printing MICR numbers compared to either pre-printed checkbook checks or pre-printed computer checks?

Federal regulations require checks to have routing transit number and account numbers printed in MICR to reduce check fraud. If you checks don’t have MICR numbers, banks will reject them. MICR stands for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition, which is a system for printing and reading numbers on a check. It uses a unique number font and prints them with a magnetic ink. This specialized printing speeds up bank processing and makes counterfeiting and forgeries more difficult.

There are two ways to get your checks encoded with MICR numbers. You can have your checks pre-printed with the required information printed in MICR, either in checkbook format or in page format for printing from your computer. Or you can print MICR numbers on blank check stock using MICR-capable check printing software.

There are several advantages to printing on blank check stock over using pre-printed checks:

Security
Printing checks when you need them, rather than having pre-printed checks lying around, minimizes opportunities for someone to steal your checks. Plus, password-protected computerized data is safer from prying eyes than ledger books. It’s also easy to create back-ups of the data should something happen to your computer or premises.

Convenience
Running out of checks is a pain. But when you use software to print on blank check stock, you never run out of checks and have to wait for new checks to arrive. A new supply of checks is as close as your local business supply store.

Save time
You can import your check data and print hundreds of check with just a few clicks. If you’ve ever written out payroll checks or paid bills by hand, you know how time consuming this is. Not only do you have to write each check individually, but then you have to log the payroll data into your accounting software. With check printing software, you input the data into your accounting software and a few more click exports it for printing.

Save money
Using blank check stock is much less expensive than having checks pre-printed. Plus, if you ever have to change banks or change your address or other information on your checks, you don’t have to have new checks printed—you just change the information in your check printing software and it prints the new information on the checks.

Report for tax time
Tax time is simplified with check printing software. Just a few clicks of the mouse generate a full report of all the checks you’ve written in the past year.

Customize your check with logo to get your brand in the market place.
Pre-printed checks cost more than blank check stock, but getting those pre-printed checks customized with your logo and slogan runs up a really hefty price tag. Check software allows you to personalize your checks easily. Just upload your logo image to the software and it prints automatically. Customized checks are an easy way to promote your brand in the marketplace as you pay for goods and services.

One MICR-capable check printing software title that is popular with small businesses is ezCheckPrinting from www.halfpricesoft.com/product_ezCheck.asp. EzCheckPrinting has all the features that high-end check printing software titles offer for small businesses without the high-end price tag. Starting at just $29 per installation or FREE through online special offer, ezCheckPrinting is affordable for any size business and is compatible with all popular brands of laser printers (most of which can print bank-accepted MICR numbers) and specialized MICR printers.
