Satago (Latin): To satisfy/pay a creditor
On Demand Business Finance
Anybody who has ever run their own small business, or worked as a freelancer, will know the pain of getting paid late by their business customers. Satago was developed after experiencing first-hand the frustration of trying to keep organised whilst simultaneously chasing dozens of debtors for payment. By giving small businesses the tools to automate this process, Satago can reduce the time and effort you spend on credit control and ultimately help you get paid faster.
