Protect your cash flow

According to the latest Financial Services Bureau survey, about one in ten small businesses said that 80% or more payments are typically late…

Even for a profitable, well-run company, running low on cash is a huge issue - and often payment collection is the culprit. Therefore, it’s essential to arm your business with the necessary tools to effectively and efficiently perform credit management and avoid late payments.

 
 

Don’t fall into the deep end of poor cash flow…

Taking control of overdue balances and the approaching credit limits of your customers is vital, but can be a very big ask of your credit control team.

Our app for Dynamics 365 for Financials helps to remove some of the manual tasks from your Credit Control team, by automatically putting sales orders on hold if a customer has overdue balances or a particular sales order would put them over their agreed credit limit.

Chasing late payments creates significant administrative burdens for small business – 35% said they spent on average 1.2 whole days per month chasing late payments.

Greater visibility of outstanding balances – by account and credit controller

Assign customers to specific individuals in your credit control team to measure both the performance of each credit controller and their accounts.

Individual dashboards help each credit controller keep on top of their specific accounts, outstanding balances and daily tasks. Visibility by account means you can easily identify the biggest outstanding balances and also ensure you don’t miss the smallest balances either.

Views of what’s due for payment in the next [x] days, means a proactive approach to credit and prevents customers regularly exceeding their payment terms.

Reduce time-consuming admin

Follow up calls/to-do’s are automatically diarised and visible in credit controllers dashboards to remind them when to chase promised payments.

Less time spent on admin means more time dealing with customer queries to ensure more payments are made on time.

Credit authorisation flexibility

Give nominated users specific credit authorisation limits; enabling sales orders to be released as required and/or define a specific grace period. Alternatively enable them to credit hold all orders to keep an eye on certain accounts, or cash sale accounts.

Recognise the importance of your biggest customers and tailor your credit rules for them accordingly. Alternatively, exclude them from credit rules to ensure their account never gets credit held.

Making the most of your credit controllers’ knowledge and experience means unnecessary delays to important sales orders.

Faster dispute resolution

For those payments that are disputed, Clever Credit’s integration to Dynamics 365 for Financials means all the information on the order and its delivery is right at hand for your credit controllers.

Improved management of disputes through assigned responsibilities and agreed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) means faster resolution – and less late payments.
