Good debtor management requires professionalism and discipline. If you have a large debtor portfolio, but do not have the people, time and resources, it may be interesting to outsource your debtor management. When you outsource this important part of the business process to specialists, you save money and time, among other things. In addition, your order to cash cycle is shortened and you have your hands free again to do what you are good at.
What does debtor management mean?
Accounts receivable management concerns all activities that a company performs to ensure that an invoice is paid. This starts before you enter into an agreement with a customer and only ends when the payment is actually received. Before the process, for example, the creditworthiness of the company can be checked in order to limit the risk of default. If an invoice is not paid, the debtor manager will have to take action. In addition to reminders in writing and by telephone, this also concerns, for example, sending reminders. Doesn’t this work? Then the debtor manager can call on a collection agency or start legal proceedings.
