Using conventional methods of payments i.e cash, cheques and bank transfers may seem like the cheapest way to operate but in fact is the most expensive. Cash is prone to mismanagement & encourages theft, cheques are slow, causing delays to operations and bank transfers are tedious to perform and expensive. The use of multiple, fragments payment methods also causes reconciliation workload and inaccuracy in bookkeeping.

Popote allows for payments to be handled digitally, all in one place. It offers low pricing yet provides immense value add above the transaction itself through its collaboration, management & accounting capabilities which reduce workload, save time, prevent theft, mitigate losses & lead to a more efficient & profitable business.

There really is only upside in adopting Popote in your organization as it is built to be versatile & is optimized for the Kenyan business landscape, with all its opportunities & threats. For example it allows levels of requisition & approvals that make it difficult to perpetrate fraud. It also allows postdating of payments in the same manner often done with postdated cheques to manage cashflows. So there is really no situation it cannot handle better & faster than other payment methods.
