Effective A/R Credit and Collections Management

Many companies invest heavily to maintain their equipment or to keep their employees happy but few invest in credit and collections management to protect their largest or second largest asset – their accounts receivable. Effective credit and collections management can reap huge benefits in most businesses ranging from small companies
to larger companies who already have a credit and collections management plan. For example, most small companies don’t have dedicated resources to call on past due accounts. These companies may offer Net 30 terms to customers but it takes them over 60 days to collect on past due receivables.

Implementing a credit management system, policies, and procedures for credit and collection management can help companies reduce days sales outstanding by 10% to 20%. This equates to cash being in the bank 6-12 days faster increasing cash flow and reducing bad debt write-offs.

Most companies implementing credit and collections management policies and systems realize a return on investment in as little as 2 months through reductions in bad debt and financing costs.
