Electronic Lockbox Services

Across all industries, corporations are recognizing the need to become smarter and more effective at managing risk, lowering costs and improving efficiency. The accounts receivables function figures prominently in this process—and increasingly, corporations are turning to electronic lockbox services to transform their accounts receivables programs.

Making the Case for Electronic Lockbox Services

Surprisingly, many corporations continue to be held hostage by paper-based invoicing and payment processes. Electronic lockbox services reduce corporate dependence on paper receivables by targeting the limitations of paper-based AR routines:

  • Time intensive – Manual, paper-based receivables process are time intensive and ultimately lead to high Day Sales Outstanding (DSO) rates.
  • High costs – Paper receivables increase the cost of invoice presentment and collection, creating inefficiencies in AR organizations.
  • Data inaccuracy – A reliance on paper-based invoices and payments can overwhelm the corporation’s financial supply chain, causing data inaccuracies and higher rates of exceptions and returns.

In the past, many corporations have been hesitant to adopt electronic lockbox technology due to concerns about the amount of time and resources required for implementation. But the latest generation of advanced electronic lockbox services mitigates these concerns and presents important opportunities for increased efficiency and revenue growth.
