The system did all the heavy lifting; it was reaching out to every customer. And it was pretty amazing, to see all these customers reaching out, wanting to pay bills, wanting to get it resolved, instead of my people having to hunt them. Didn’t matter what amount was the invoice, everyone was getting contacted.

Challenges

  • Completely Manual Processes

    With no automation solution in place, the entire process was heavily manual. Dunning through emails, calls, or fax was all done manually, making it challenging for collectors to cover all accounts. Over 50% of the analyst’s time was spent just dialing for dollars, writing emails, and requesting escalations.

  • Limited Visibility into End To End Processes

    Ivanti did not use any form of centralized repository for tracking reminders, emails, notes, or P2Ps. Thus, there was no real visibility into their operations regarding which payments needed to be followed upon. This meant a lack of ownership among teams.

    There was also no visibility for C-suite members to analyze the performance of their business units. These reports also had to be generated manually.

  • No Standardized Strategy for Work List Prioritization

    With no actual customer prioritization list in place, Ivanti lacked focus on strategizing accounts, which impacted the entire receivables aging. Working on multiple Excel spreadsheets also proved to be a challenging task because it required too much effort and led to errors.

  • Cultural and Language Barriers

    With customers present worldwide, Ivanti faced issues with conforming to the local norms of correspondence. This caused significant hassle and delays in collecting payments.

The Big Picture – How Integrated Receivables Helped

AI-enabled collections helped Ivanti reallocate 90% of their analysts’ time to higher priority tasks like research and contacting top customers. With artificial intelligence they were able to:

  • Automate prioritization of work lists.
  • Improve collector productivity and help them focus on strategic accounts.
  • Automate dunning across all accounts

Ivanti was also able to implement reporting frameworks at employee and CXO levels using the solution. This helped create visibility for them by enabling them to track performance in real-time and get a fair idea of ownership of accounts. With the use of dashboards, the company monitored its collector efficiency index (CEI) and analyzed metrics like the cost of AR operations and DSO reduction.

The main benefit Ivanti gained from the implementation of the dashboards and AI was cash forecasting.With the solution, Ivanti could get accurate predictions of accounts payable based on consumer payment behavior patterns since there was no visibility into payment prediction at the invoice-level. Using this technology helped them accurately assess high-risk customers and prioritize who to contact accordingly.

With artificial intelligence, Ivanti could build a scalable solution to help them eliminate manual and repetitive tasks, utilize resources strategically, standardize processes, and get real-time visibility into metrics and performance. This step helped them achieve over 20% year over year business growth.

The automation collection operation that we had with HighRadius was that we were able to have an automated priority work list. This was very big for us.

How did HighRadius Help

Automated Capture and Recording of Customer Calls, Notes, and P2Ps

The solution was able to pull and store information from calls, emails and other such correspondences, saving analysts’ time for more critical tasks.

AI Driven Prioritized Work Lists

The solution used AI to provide accurate predictions of customers’ payment commitments and used that information to create work lists for analysts to use, filtering customers by risk. This also brought a level of standardization into the workflow.

Auto Extraction of Invoices and Tracking

The solution helped extract information and invoices from correspondences directly and provided real-time tracking insights into payments

Increased Visibility

With dashboards recording performance, the solution helped Ivanti track critical metrics like the KPIs of employees.

Easy Access and User Friendly

The solution was straightforward to use and was also able to provide user support in multiple languages. This made cross-country correspondence for collections much simpler.

Tony Hiatt

The way customers pay in the software industry is an average 45 days. Our customers on average now pay 14 days past the due date when before we were 70 something days past the due date. Now HighRadius was able to give us those numbers as well.
