Frequently asked Questions (FAQ)
Why should I have policies for my organization?

Policies are needed for all companies – if you are a relatively new company operating for maybe less than 5 years, and having a small team of staff, policies help to scale up the organization.

Further, you may already be having issues such as – payments getting delayed due to every single payment needing approval from the Owner/ CEO, confusion amongst employees on pricing, lack of controls on credit terms, constant friction between departments etc.
