24. « This is Hans Borutta from Odoo. You and I haven't spoken before, but the reason why I am calling you is because over the last year I have been talking with people in your position within companies similar to yours. One of the main concerns they shared with me was the risk of lost revenue and missed targets for not having all timesheets invoiced on a timely manner. They basically told me they didn’t have a centralized system for people to fill in their timesheets electronically, that was linked to the invoicing system. Now, since we have been able to address this issue, can I ask you if is this a problem you recognise as well and if you would be interested in hearing how we did ? »
