Most A/R leaders are well acquainted with the technology that enables automation and reallocates their team’s bandwidth to more high-impact jobs like evaluating critical accounts and making data-backed decisions. These technology pieces include Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

A relatively less popular and new piece of technology in this space is Natural Language Processing (NLP), which is a branch of AI that is concerned with the interactions between an intelligent system and human languages.

The NLP technology is famous for intent and entity identification. This means that it is able to understand the requirement of the request raised and provide a reasonable answer. In the blog, we will try to break down how this unique technology can elevate A/R leaders into a more strategic role.

How Freeda can create value for A/R leaders in the office of a CFO

Let us take a quick look at how Freeda helps A/R teams to stay ahead of the customer behavior trends:

1. Prioritized Worklists

  • Freeda helps the team by organizing their worklist and arranging action items based on priority levels while also suggesting where to start the day.
  • Freeda also manages the call dashboards and identifies the critical customer/account based on the past-due date details along with the collection amount.
  • This enables them to function faster and trims down their search time to look for different sources of data.

2. Customer interaction transcription

  • Freeda transcribes live customer calls along with highlighting and capturing the important points. It then saves them in the call log.
  • This allows the A/R team to quickly track all the essential details from the call and act accordingly.

3. Intelligent suggestions

  • Freeda suggests intelligent action items based on the call with the customer and allows the team to make quick decisions.
  • It can also draft emails, along with attaching the relevant documents, based upon the recent interaction with a customer. The analyst can then manually configure the email if required and send it out.
  • It also notifies the team members of the additional tasks done by the system, like saving the call notes, updating the correspondence history, etc.

4. Intent analysis

  • Freeda identifies keywords, phrases, letters, sentences, rows, and column headers in an email body.
  • For instance, the HighRadius Deduction cloud has an email inbox that enables the A/R team to directly go through all the emails in a single place rather than navigating somewhere else for it. Freeda captures the data from it to provide a suggestive action item for the analyst.

What does the Future of Finance with NLP Look Like

This is how digital assistants can perform the day-to-day finance operations and become a trusted colleague for A/R teams in the future

It could help teams drive exceptional customer calls by :

  • Suggesting real-time questions that the analyst could ask the customer on calls.
  • Providing suggestions on how to answer questions from the customers.
  • Predicting the probable questions that the customer might ask.

It could help identify the intent of the customer by performing sentiment analysis:

  • Assigning customers to different sentiment buckets- positive, negative, and neutral.
  • Determining the intent using voice and tone, for instance- will the customer keep the Promise-to-Pay or not.
  • This allows the collector to take corrective actions proactively.
