Accounts Receivable Management

Accounts Receivable

One of the most important parts of any business is cash and the management of cash. A key part of cash management is keeping control of your customer balances, or Accounts Receivable. When you fail to diligently manage your accounts receivable, you put your business in jeopardy. Your accounts receivable are responsible for your cash flow, which is used to pay your debts, grow your business, invest in technology and capital assets. It is the life blood of a company.

Along with accounts receivable processing is the actual billing of customers to create your accounts receivable balances. Customer billing should be consistent, timely, and well communicated.  

One of the most important financial ratios is called accounts receivable  days. It’s a number you should measure and monitor. We will monitor this for you and if we see a substantial change in the wrong and monitor.
