There is a lot riding on an organization’s order-to-cash (O2C) cycle.
CFOs depend on visibility into the O2C process to develop strategies for:
- Increasing competitiveness and profitable growth
- Implementing agile operating models
- Addressing customer and market demands
- Freeing funds for reinvestment through improved operational efficiency
But that’s easier said than done for most CFOs.
Many finance organizations rely on manual, fragmented order-to-cash systems and processes with different levels of automation, no standardization, and running on different technology platforms. If factories operated in a fragmented manner like this, goods would never make it to the loading dock.
It is no wonder that finance organizations are busy investing time and money in integrating their order-to-cash systems, standardizing order-to-cash processes, and improving access to critical data.
They are looking to operate order-to-cash like a factory: with high precision and no friction
IOFM’s latest white paper details the challenges with manual, fragmented O2C processes, describes an O2C factory and how it works, and lays out the 7 ways that CFOs benefit from an O2C factory.
If your dissatisfied with your O2C processes, maybe it’s time to start operating them like a factory.
