Today, credit teams have to spend their valuable time and effort on low-impact manual tasks. These include studying each credit report, identifying the correct data to consider, and then updating each customer’s credit information.

Credit management was one of the biggest challenges for their A/R department.

This resulted in lowering the time taken to conduct each credit review by 96%.
Today, credit leaders realize the importance of having an efficient, practical, and up-to-date credit risk management process. Increasing the number of credit reviews being performed or credit reports being pulled is just a short-term solution and cannot become your organization’s credit strategy. This outlook needs to change quickly and drastically if working capital optimization is a priority. Your credit management process needs a reliable and long-term solution to ensure unpredictable incidents and factors do not deter your business.
The utmost responsibility of directors and managers of credit is to guide their organizations on the right path to ensure intelligent real-time credit risk monitoring, preventing bad debt and enabling profitable growth.
This requires transitioning from traditional methods of operation to more futuristic and scalable digital solutions. Additionally, having global visibility across all A/R operations with the help of a platform that consolidates all the data from internal teams helps break silos and contribute to faster revenue growth.
