Before collections manager, we would print out our AR report, go through it making check boxes next to the customers we talked to, and writing notes directly on the printout. We would end up keeping copies of the prior month report to look for old notes. We now manage that process within Acumatica on a single screen, have our system remind our customers, and keep notes where they persist over time and everyone can see them. We have grown 50% over the past few years and our AR is lower than it was before.
I have this solution in my Acumatica 2020R2 instance and it is extremely helpful particularly in the area of automating email delivery to customers. I have 7 companies. This solution has provided the automation of statement delivery, the automation of reminder emails that include attachment of invoices to customers that a payment is coming due, and the automation of emails with invoices attached that informs a customer that their balance is past due.. I am able to on my own, to create and manage a collections plan for each of my companies. And I can create collection plans by customer providing the flexibility I need to address collection needs for each of them based on the payment behavior. This solution provides much more including a dashboard that gives me visibility to our priority collection activities. Prior to implementing this solution we spent hours organizing emails and attaching invoices to them. This effort was difficult to stay on top of. After using this solution for one year we have been able to approve our DSO by 11 days overall and our most challenging company had DSO of 70 days in 2019 and now is down to 51 days for year ending 2020. Needless to say the solution has been provided an outstanding ROI.
