It’s a special day for us at Chaser as we celebrate our 5th birthday! It is exactly five years since we launched on 19 August 2014. Check out our launch tweet below (back in the days of the chaser.io website):
It’s been an amazing 5 years. We’d like to take this moment to thank all of our users and our Accounting and Bookkeeping partners for their amazing support. It was your generosity of time, belief and patience that ultimately brought Chaser to life in the beginning. And it has been your support that has helped us enjoy the success we’ve had over the last 5 years. From leaving us amazing reviews, to voting for us for awards, to your amazing feedback on the product itself. All of your contributions have made Chaser what it is today, and we wouldn’t be here without you.
Chaser was born out of my own experience as an Accountant at Deloitte, and an SME Finance Director. I was constantly frustrated by the lack of effective solutions for carrying out credit control. Chaser was started out of the belief that there had to be a better way for SMEs to ensure that their invoices were paid on time. It continues to be an incredible journey; working with a special team and fantastic partners and users to make late payment a thing of the past.
The Journey So Far
What you’ve helped us achieve
This is also an important juncture for us to take stock of just how far we’ve come! Our users have achieved incredible things over the past 5 years!
Chase over $2 billion worth of invoices
Just last week, we passed the landmark of having helped our users chase $2 billion worth of invoices. After passing the $1billion landmark three and a half years after launch, it’s taken us just a year and a half to chase the next billion.
So what could you do with $2 billion? You could go on a round trip to the moon….twice. You could buy Liverpool football club (but not Manchester United which is worth $3.81bllion).
Jokes aside, this is a very special figure for us. Helping to ensure invoices are consistently paid within payment terms is hugely important for our small-medium business users as it facilitates a healthy backdrop for their all-important investment and growth!
Our users have left us nearly 400 reviews, at a perfect 5.0 star rating! We are especially proud of this as it shows just how much they value Chaser as a product and the Chaser team. So here is a big THANK YOU to everyone who has left us a review over the years. We are where we are today thanks to the continued support we have received.
Again, thank you to everyone who has supported Chaser throughout the past 5 years. And thank you to the incredible Chaser team for the passion and commitment you bring to your work. It has been an incredible 5 years. But in the grand scheme of things, we are just getting going….Here’s to the next 5 years!
