A fast growing inventory management company had a receivables problem: The firm was adding customers quickly, but customer payments were way past due and getting worse. Adding people to the collections team helped a little, but it was clear that the approach had limitations. The business' CFO conferred with Bart Davis, his strategic finance partner at 512Financial to find answers. They settled on implementing Centime AR – an Accounts Receivable automation solution that was part of the Centime Cash Management Suite. Success came quickly. Within 90 days, the business was able to dramatically cut down on past due payments, drive collections efficiency, and improve cash flow. And set the company up to scale efficiently.
Late payments are a serious problem for any business; and the problem is big and getting worse. A recent study indicates that the average mid-sized business is owed over $300,000 in late payments, while 47% of US businesses report a deterioration in customer payment practices. But late payments can be tamed. It has been proven that AR Automation solutions can reduce past due receivables, improve cash flow, and enable AR teams to be more efficient. Most importantly, automation helps you scale AR function as you grow your business.
