More than 75% of operational delays in clearing deductions occur because analysts manually gather, sort and index documents related to deductions. Each step takes time and the manual effort leads to mistakes and errors, further delaying the actual deductions research – the key to identifying and resolving short pays, including shortages and trade promotions. As deductions volumes have grown and invalid deductions have doubled in recent years (per Credit Research Foundation and Attain Consulting survey), eliminating such clerical delays is critical not only to speeding up the process and reducing costs but also to reversing the shrinking recovery rates that companies are seeing.
