The future is Clear – simple, quick, hassle-free invoicing
Invoicing is a headache – no-one likes doing it. Especially if you still use Excel, Word or even your accounts package to create your invoices. But now there’s an alternative.
Clear is an online invoicing and time tracking service that enables business professional to quickly and easily create, send, track and manage invoices. With no finance or technical skills needed, Clear will free up your time to earn more money, enable you to look stunningly professional and help you to get paid faster.
Get a Clear picture of your cash flow
Clear will also improve your cash flow. Research shows that small companies that use tools like Clear get paid on average 14 days quicker. Why? Because your invoices don’t simply disappear into a black hole only for you to discover months later that they never arrived.
You’re Clear to land and it’s safe to do so
And now the serious bit. Clear isn’t a home-brew experiment (though many great Internet businesses started that way!). We’re part of EGS Group Ltd, a business trusted by over 100 major organisations to process and deliver in excess of £1 billion-worth of invoices electronically each year. So your business is safe with us.
Meet some of the team
We have a great team working on Clear, each are experts in their own field. Collectively we have decades of experience of e-invoicing. It’s that know-how that will make your online invoice experience as good as it possibly can be. Here are some things even we didn’t know about a few members of our team … until we asked:
Michael McLintock - Application Support Analyst
As his name suggests, Michael is Scottish through and through. But he disguises this … by going under cover with a broad Essex accent. Michael has an aversion to gardening and would rather green spaces were used for his main passion … sport.

Richard Nduka - Senior Developer
History fan Richard is fascinated by the secrets of the ancient world. His tastes are global too, looking to Jamaica for his favourite music (Bob Marley), to West Africa for his top food (jollof rice with plantain) and to the States for his all-time favourite movie … The Godfather!

Andrew Powell - Software Development Manager
Usually seen behind his keyboard at work, Andrew enjoys another keyboard at home – relaxing by tinkling the ivories on his piano. He’s also useful at DIY. But if the weather improves, the outdoor life beckons, in the shape of camping trips.
The most played song on my iPod: I don't have an iPod. The songs I hear most often (involuntarily!) are my kids' nursery rhymes!
Noelia Rivero - Supplier Adoption Manager
Noelia is happiest spinning, watching the movie The Devil wears Prada, or enjoying afternoon tea with lots of scones. What infuriates her are those impressive public transport reliability stats … that simply prove she’s amazingly unlucky!

Nishant Singh - Senior Developer
Keen sports fan Nishant adores cricket and tennis. But his other main hobby is very different. In his spare time, he produces freestyle, abstract oil paintings on canvas. His favourite food is more down-to-earth … a full English breakfast. But not every day!

Steve Fountain - Content Co-ordinator
Ex-newspaper reporter Steve focuses on the words and images on our site. When he’s not wordsmithing, Steve supports upwardly-mobile Southampton FC and frets about restoring old electric guitars.

Elena Toma - Financial Assistant
Elena is a big fan of Mediterranean food, travel and reading. Learning French could be useful for all of these. And it’s number-one on her to-do list. But she hasn’t quite managed it. Why? “Je ne sais pas!” she would say (if she could speak French).
The most played song on my iPod: When we collide by Matt Cardle
Peter Whent - Chief Executive
Peter enjoys sailing, collects wine and keeps pigs. He enjoys sport with a passion - any sport anytime! His biggest sporting moment was being caught on TV, celebrating Alan Shearer’s second goal when England beat Holland 4-1 at Wembley in Euro 96. He also attended the original Live Aid.
