- Michael Lynn was looking for a solution to streamline invoicing and utilize partial payments for his growing business.
- After going to a networking event, Michael was able to hear how Thryv would help him process all his payments online.
- Now, Michael enjoys the convenience of processing partial payments, sending invoices & more, giving him more time to print the products he loves to create for his clients.
Michael Lynn of 3D Print Everything started his business in April of 2017. He saw an emerging market for 3D printing and met another local engineer who custom builds the printers one would use to create a 3D model. Michael began his research and soon asked to have a custom printer built for himself. After some trial and error, Michael decided to come up with a business name and created a Facebook Business Page. Soon after, he began receiving orders to print with his new machine. By October of 2018, Michael was adding more and more printers and processing more orders. He then realized he needed a better way to process payments from his clientele and also establish an online presence if he wanted to continue to grow.
After attending a networking event in his area, Michael was able to see how easy it would be to use Thryv software to run his business. Michael tells us "When you are trying to be a professional at an event, and you don't have an online presence, it's a little embarrassing." Now, with Thryv, Michael is able to leverage his Client Portal to open the door for new business as well as manage his existing clients with his inbox messages - all from one convenient place.
The most important thing for Michael, however, was the Sales feature within Thryv. Michael says "Having a way to contact a lead and say "If this works out, I'll be able to send you an invoice for you to pay online" has been a lot of help." "The payment processing has been one of the most helpful things!"
With Thryv, Michael says he can now spend more time running several other aspects of his business which is now growing at a rapid pace.
