Unfortunatly deabeat clients are part of almost every business whether you're an electrician, plumber, builder, landscaper, dentist, mechanic, childcare provider, etc, etc, etc, etc. Millions of dollars are lost to deadbeat clients each year around the Country. Most of the time a business has to spend additional money to chase a client throught the court system or pay a fee to a collection agency just to get the money originally owed to them. WHY IS THIS TOLLERATED........ Then, theres nothing to prevent a deadbeat client from pulling the same crap on the next company. I've gotten to the point where I'm tired of seeing deadbeat clients always having the upper hand. What I mean is we as businessmen and women have no idea if a client is going to stiff us on the bill or if they have a reputation for doing such. So, I'm in the process of having a website designed that will launch in the next 60 days that should be a benefit to most businesses. Concept: To create a searchable database of National deadbeat clients. Here's two examples of how the database can be used to a businesses advantage. Example 1: Electrician ABC does work for Mr Jones lcoatated on Lincoln Ave in Virginia. Mr Jones is then sent and invoice for the work and he decides not to pay the bill. Electrician ABC sends Mr Jones to collections but Mr Jones still refuses to pay the bill. Electrian ABC then logs into the deadbeat client database and adds Mr Jones to the National database stating the reason of non-payment for performed services. The website then generates a pre-formated letter for Mr Jones that says something along the lines of "Dear Mr Jones, your name has been added to a daedbeat client database by Electrian ABC for reasons of non-payment for performed services on such a date. You will have 10 days to respond to this letter if you feel this information is in question. The clients comments will also be added to the database. (Sort of like the feedback section on EBAY). The client will also be informed that their name will be removed from the database once a settlement has been reached with Electrician ABC. Example 2: Mrs Jones calls XYZ-Plumbing for service, XYZ-Plumbing goes online and performes a quick search to see if Mr Jones located on Lincol Ave in Virgina is in the deabeat client database. Once Mr Jones's name comes up for having payment problems with Electrician ABC, then XYZ-Plumbing knows they should either collect their payment in advance or pass on the job. I biggest hurdle I forsee is the legal issue of putting deadbeats into a database that is accessable online (the personal info issue), however the only people that will have access to the database will be businesses not the general public. There will also be some lengthy legal verbage about the validity of the information located on the site and the letter to the client will be the final opportunity for a client to address any issues. The Better Business Bureau has been looking out for a clients best intrests for years now but nobodys looking out for a businesses best intrests. As this website database grows it should become a beneficial tool. Would this type of searchable database in a website appeal to you as a business owner?
