Businesses understand the importance of managing cash-flow and know the impact it can have. ZayZoon helps empower your employees with this supercharged cash-flow management tool.
Do my employees need ZayZoon?
Cash-flow management can be difficult. If payroll was perfect, employees would be paid at the end of each shift and they wouldn’t have to plan weeks in advance. Even those who are in a relatively secure financial position may find themselves behind on their bills when an unexpected expense pops up. Typically, employees will get paid on a set day every month and their bills will usually be due on a set day too.
For instance, your employees may be paid on the 1st and 15th each month with their mortgage or rent due on the 1st and utility bills due on the 15th. That lines up perfectly for most workers.
However, this isn’t a typical scenario. Typically, a person will be paid on the 1st and 15th but they will have rent on the 1st, a cell phone bill on the 6th, credit card payment on the 11th, utilities on the 12th and so forth. It is hard enough for one to plan this into their budget but adds just one unexpected expense and you can almost guarantee your employees’ expense planning will be out of balance and get them behind on their bills. Unplanned expenses occur in everyone’s life, whether it’s a small fender bender or a broken water heater that needs fixing. Helping ease the financial stress of these unexpected expenses is just one of the things ZayZoon helps with.
What will ZayZoon do?
ZayZoon will give the opportunity of having money 24 hours a day, 365 days a year without ever causing any debt to the employee. When an advance is an option for your employees, you can help them stay caught up on their bills so that they don’t suffer late fees, credit dings, or the snowballing effect that missing just a single payment can have on a person’s finances.
Instead of your employees having to turn to a payday lender – where the average borrower has to pay $520 in interest – you can offer your employees a safe, no-interest option that is free from penalties, allowing them to simply accessed the hours they have already worked, but haven’t yet been paid for.
The Benefits of ZayZoon
There are many benefits that go along with offering ZayZoon. Reducing financial stress on an employee can help to increase productivity, supercharge recruitment, reduce turnover and eliminate any current administration of employee advances. Further benefits include:
- Lessen their financial burden. Pushing up an employee’s payday can go very far in lowering their financial stress. Now they can access the money they have earned whenever they need it.
- Enable them to get things fixed now. When an employee is having a personal problem, like a broken water heater, they no longer have to wait until payday to get it fixed. With ZayZoon, they can address it right away, stop thinking about it, and focus on more important things.
- Save them from fees. You might not run a business that has a major social impact but with ZayZoon, now you can. Through accessing earned but unpaid wages, your employees can avoid predatory lenders who can end up costing them hundreds (or thousands) of dollars in fees and interest.
