On-Demand: Insider Guide to Reducing DSO: What AR Needs to Know about AP



Is there pressure from your CFO to improve your DSO? Are you frustrated because no matter what you do, the customer still pays late? More and more companies are starting to dictate when they will pay you, instead of honoring the terms of the order. Whether the customer requests additional copies of the invoice, tries to negotiate new terms after purchase, or makes deductions that you have to research or refute, their tactics are costing you time, taking a toll on DSO, and hurting your company’s bottom line.

AR, Credit and Collections are at the end of a very complicated Order-to-Cash (O2C) process, which is dependent on a chaotic Procure-to-Pay (P2P) process. Understanding these processes are key to making strategic improvements which will have a real impact to DSO by ensuring you receive accurate payments – in full and on time.

This webinar will:

  • Explain P2P and O2C and provide actionable steps that will help you combat issues that arise from these processes

  • Provide you definitive actions that you can take that have measurable impact on DSO – and your organization’s bottom line

  • Teach you how to gain support to improve the process and remove the roadblocks that cause late payments

  • Supply you with strategies to counter when your customer proposes new payment terms (or learn to make it work to your advantage
