Manage follow-up with proactive strategy —
not sticky notes.
Similar to the way other departments use CRM software to manage critical workflow functions, Esker gives AR departments an easy, yet thorough, way to orchestrate post-sale collection interactions. Sticky notes, calendar reminders and spreadsheets are replaced with strategic tools such as:
- Payment reminder emails
- Root-cause analysis & deductions
- Rule-based task lists
- Account lookups & call logging
- Collections forecast
- Payment plans
Building a Business Case
How to Confront Outdated Processes and Make Your Project a Top Priority
“Our customers have become more proactive in the collections process.
They’re able to go into the portal, view their statement and pay.”
Give customers the control and convenience they’ve come to expect.
Having a “personal touch” in customer service is great, but what today’s customers really value is the ability to perform tasks and find information online. Esker's customer portal powered by TermSync technology allows companies to provide that option, acting as an online support center for everything invoice-related.
SELF-SERVICE TOOLSto view invoice info, make payments, apply credits, auto-pay, etc.
SUPPORT TOOLS to send messages, ask questions, track vendor response time, file disputes, etc.
ENGAGEMENT TOOLS to set up auto-pay reminders, track when invoices were viewed, log-in, etc.
Streamline the credit application process.
Getting complete and accurate credit information from customers is easier said than done. Esker’s online credit application takes the hassle out of the process by providing users with a customizable online form that includes automated workflow approval and audit trail, secure storage, and trade references.
Whip your analytics into shape by going beyond DSO.
Most AR departments measure how quickly they were paid … and that’s about it. With Esker, companies are able to shed light onto simple, yet essential metrics that are invaluable to the success of billing and collection process flow.
Users can easily measure:
- Response time to customer inquiries
- When an invoice was received
- Number of automated reminders being sent out
- Data associated with follow-up calls
- Root-causes of payment delays
- Collections goal in terms of dollars
