ACH Payment Launch

Dan Uyemura @danuyemura

This week we're finally pulling off the bandaid errrrr covers of a project we've legit been working towards for almost 3 years.

While this is significant because it's a major thing many of our clients have been asking for, and it's even more significant because it required us to overhaul our entire billing engine under the hood... this is most relevant for everyone here to understand sometimes things go sideways.

Like many wise people before me have said - a failure is only a failure if you don't learn from it.

We've learned a TON on how NOT to do certain things in this 3-year long project.

I guess what I'd like to make sure owners out there know... you won't make every client happy 100% of the time. Just keep pushing everything forward, in small increments. Don't make big mistakes and correct everything you can. You'll get there!

Happy hump day to you all!
