MY ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE AGING
Provides a quick visual reference of your trade tape broken out by aging buckets and amount outstanding. The widget is presented in a user-friendly layout, making it easy for you to communicate your accounts receivable performance to the credit and finance departments.
We constantly monitor derogatory information received every day from litigation records, state and federal tax liens, supplier delinquency reports and Bankruptcy Court electronic monitoring. This information is compared to your portfolio, and you are alerted in your Notification Center for immediate review and action as you deem appropriate. It is important to note that this is updated in real time as information is received.
PEER PAYMENT COMPARISON
As a trade tape participant, at a glance you are able to compare your company's specific customer aging experience to that of the composite experience of all other providers in your segment. You can also quickly identify collection opportunities via the "Accounts Paying Us Slower" listing.
This module displays those companies in your portfolio that are receiving the greatest level of interest from your fellow credit executives. A company receiving a large number of hits may or may not be cause for concern; however, it is a good practice to be aware so that you are not "blindsided" by a troublesome situation or that your sales team misses an opportunity if the interest is positive.
