Why reliable collection and payment is indispensable for SMMEs

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMMEs) often navigate challenging waters. These enterprises are the backbone of our economy, driving growth, innovation, and job creation. However, they may face financial fluxes, making optimising every aspect of their operations essential. One such aspect that deserves attention is payment collection.

Currently, the top five challenges that SA SMMEs are up against are access to finance, regulatory compliance, limited market access, skills shortages and infrastructure constraints.
