Why Satago is now Free

As of today, Satago's debtor-tracking and credit control CRM system is FREE for users of cloud-accounting software.

That means if you are a user of Xero, Quickbooks Online, Kashflow, Freeagent, SageOne or Freshbooks you can use the world's best platform for improving cashflow and chase up to 5000 invoices a month for free. Gratis. Nada!

Our integrated credit risk data is, as before, free for you to use (UK only data at the moment) after integration so you don't just chase the oldest debts - you can prioritise the highest risk ones too.

WHY FREE?

The main reason to go free now is that we have just opened access to our revolutionary Invoice Finance product. We wanted to wait and see what the reaction would be and it's fair to say we have been over-whelmed with the positive feedback and already have a good number of users signed up for early access.

So our business model now is quite simple:

  1. We let everyone in the world use Satago for free.
  2. Everybody's cashflow gets improved.
  3. Some of our users will buy business credit reports and use us for Invoice Finance.

We hope you agree this makes great sense. Even if you never spend a penny (or cent!) in Satago, we are very happy to have you use our platform to improve your cashflow. We want to help all small and medium sized businesses around the world enjoy Total Cashflow Reliability.

TIME TO TRY SATAGO

If you're not already a Satago user, now is a good time to sign-up and try us out: https://app.satago.com/register

Please note: our website still refers to our pricing and 30-day free trial etc. This will be changing over the next 24 hours.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS

Existing subscribers will be switched to a free plan over the coming week. You will receive a partial refund for the remainder of the month.

Subscribers who have paid for a year in advance will receive a pro-rata refund.

We are going to retire the hard-copy payment demand letters. It's the one bit of the current product that we can't really make free and we don't want to have a payment system just for the letters.

Desktop users: due to the high-cost of maintaining and supporting desktop software, we will have to continue to charge our desktop users. Now might a good time to consider switching to one of our cloud-accounting software partners.
