AR collections automation is the digital transformation of processes to automated collections solutions. Automation increases collections, accelerates cash flow, improves efficiency and enhances customer experience.

Accounts receivable collections automation includes digitizing the following processes to achieve accounts receivable goals.

Cloud-Based Collections

Digital access to collections solutions is essential for your team and customers in the new normal. Cloud- based collections provide access from anywhere at any time. They facilitate remote work and flexible work schedules. Cloud-based solutions provide dependable, robust computing power to support automated collections.

Automated Communications

Email driven by a rules engine enables customized email messages timed to reach customers when they are more likely to read them and take action, increasing collections and reducing DSO. Digital communications give your collections team more time to contact high priority accounts. More customer contact results in increased collections.

Online Customer Self-Service

A self-serve customer portal helps to achieve collections goals, improve efficiency for your team and customers, and enhance customer experience. Customers want the flexibility and efficiency that a self-serve portal can provide. Customers want to manage their accounts when it suits them. They don’t want to have to contact your team for routine transactions, and your team doesn’t want to spend time on manual tasks. Self-service works for everyone.

Collections Activity Management

Activity management solutions help to focus your collections team on priority collections to reduce DSO and increase efficiency. It provides a 360-degree account overview, prioritizes accounts, and helps to keep your team on task. Time that was spent trying to prioritize accounts can be spent contacting priority accounts.

Reporting & Forecasting

Stakeholders need to be updated on a timely basis on KPIs and cash flow forecasts. Automation enables real-time reporting and forecasting. It eliminates the need to tie up resources to manually analyze data and produce reports and forecasts, so more time can be spent achieving AR goals.
