credit management

Is your cashflow being strangled by bad debt or late payments?

When cashflow is the life blood of a business, credit management is critical. The challenges of the last couple of years have made it far harder to manage cashflow. In addition to revenue shortfalls and increased costs, many customers have been pushed into financial difficulties and not been able to pay their invoices. Or they purposely pay them as late as possible. 

At best this can have serious implications on productivity and the ability to operate or invest. At worst it may mean bankruptcy for some businesses. 

Whether you are a large organisation or a SME, a thorough credit management strategy is vital. However the costs and challenges associated with recruiting, training and implementing it can be complicated and exceptionally time consuming. The issue of debt management can be compounded by misallocation or slow processing of customer payments received, especially if this is done manually.

Handling debt management badly can have devasting consequences on customer relationships. It can also inhibit future sales. Good credit management requires a level of understanding and expertise to deal with complex scenarios.
