Accounts receivable financing can seem rather complex, and very well can be for many companies. Whether it is simply misunderstanding concepts or just being out of practice, it may be helpful to review some quick tips for managing your accounts receivable.
- Take Advantage of the Tech: When used to its fullest potential, technology can save you countless hours by automating tasks and minimizing the risk of human error. Collection and credit applications can be pricey, but often are a great investment in the long run.
- Be a Proactive Communicator: Do not let payment issues snowball into critical problems for your company. Identify and clear up any confusion as soon as it’s apparent and address it with your customers.
- Spring Cleaning: Be sure to clear old or outdated data from your systems. When managing a successful business, it’s often easy to let clutter take over your hard drive or cabinet space. Regularly purge your memory and file folders of long-gone clients to streamline your data collection and make shuffling through superfluous files a thing of the past.
- Metrics Matter: From asset turnover results to asset quality, pay security to risk profiles, there are many accounts receivable metrics that truly matter. Put metrics in place to ensure that the numbers that matter (or should matter) are being tracked and accurately reported for your company.
