Advantages of a Robust Integrated Receivables Management Program for Businesses

Paper-based accounts receivables processes plague modern enterprises and damage cash flow performance. According to a study by Aite Group, nearly 60 percent of companies are dissatisfied with their accounts receivables and accounts payables processes. Approximately three-fourths of businesses cite issues with higher requests for exceptions and returns, as well as problems with data accuracy and completeness. To address these challenges and increase profitability, forward-thinking enterprises are leveraging integrated receivables management technology.

How Integrated Receivables Management Improves Financial Performance

Organizations can dramatically improve profitability and reduce costs associated with presenting invoices and processing payments. There are several key benefits of an integrated receivables management platform for corporations, including:

  • Cash flow management improvements, such as Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) increases of up to 80 percent and more predictable payment cycles, reducing processing time from an average of 45 days to less than 10
  • Higher rates of straight-through invoice postings that allow AR departments to streamline straight-through invoicing rates by 80 percent or more
  • Enhanced security protocols and data accuracy improvements that protect important customer information and lower the amount of exceptions companies must process
  • Lowers AR costs for invoice presentment and collections by more than 90 percent, saving organizations millions of dollars per year
  • Increases customer satisfaction by enabling clients to automate payments and access comprehensive information about the status and details of invoices

Although paper-based invoicing processes still dominate more than 67 percent of corporations, according to research by the Remittance Coalition, integrated receivables solutions are gaining traction among businesses for their ease of use and cash flow management benefits.
