Getting people to recognise that what they are doing is ethically wrong and morally reprehensible is one thing. Getting them to actually make good on their past commitments is another challenge altogether. And getting them to pay what they owe? Well, we think you have a good idea of how difficult that is.
But we knew how challenging this would be before we created brodmin. We also know that we would never be able to do this on our own. brodmin’s strengths are its users. With your help, and of thousands of others from around the world, we hope to take this challenge head on.
It is well known that larger corporations are slower than companies of a smaller size when making payments. Going up against the big boys has never been easy for small and medium-sized businesses. The UK Government tried, unsuccessfully, to get around 7,000 large corporations to publish and share statistics that talk about their payment performance.
If a Government-mandated disclosure initiative is having little to no results, then getting companies to actually pay their invoices on time might be more difficult than we imagined.
