Collecting Accounts Receivables

Unfortunately, debt is becoming more common, and every business has customers that are either slow to make a payment or who avoid making a payment at all. When it comes to collecting accounts receivables and keeping the cash flow going, commercial experience has shown that of every 10 new customers, only six will make payment on time. Two will pay late, and the final two will be long-term debtors and will usually need to be referred to a debt collections agency. However, putting in place an efficient and effective system for collecting accounts receivables makes sure that the maximum amount of payments is made in a timely manner and that the onerous task of chasing customers for payment is reduced exponentially.

Simplifying the Process of Collections
The business of chasing individuals for overdue payments can be time-consuming, expensive, and laborious. However, BillingTree can greatly reduce the amount of manual effort expended. Through the elimination of manual processes and the initiation of automated payment cycles, it is possible for collection agencies to enjoy a more efficient means of debt recovery. Automated processes ensure that money is received more rapidly through the digitization of the process and the introduction of a paper-free environment. The elimination of paper invoices that require printing and mailing means that the process is accelerated, with digital delivery taking place immediately. Invoices can be automatically generated and delivered consistently and on time, while the ability to enable digital payments and set up recurring automatic payments ensures that payments will be received in the right amount and at the right time to eliminate the need for chasing someone. A centralized reporting system also guarantees a more convenient and easier system for keeping track of payments and remaining amounts outstanding.

Variety of Payment Methods and Greater Flexibility
Facilitating payments is essential to receiving the highest proportion of monies owed in a timely manner. By offering a broad spectrum of payment collection methods, including ACH collections and credit and debit card processing, it is possible to open up more convenient routes of payment for debtors rather than having to depend on the notoriously unreliable options of cash or paper checks. By offering 24/7 access to payment portals and IVR payment processing, BillingTree guarantees that collecting accounts receivables is simplified and facilitated. By offering greater flexibility, a smoother customer relationship can be formed between collections agencies and customers, while the real-time payment authorization ensures peace of mind for all parties.
