  • Do your people spend too much time on collections, without worthwhile results?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, call Accord. No matter what business you’re in, we’ve got you covered.

Extending credit is a fact of life for many business owners, but deciding who to extend it to, and how much, can be risky business.

You probably spend too much time, money and effort chasing down references and obtaining bank reports, but you’re still uncertain. Give too much credit and you’re at risk. Too little and your goods are unsold.

Even if you set appropriate credit limits. Money doesn’t arrive like clockwork. You need to know who owes you, how much and for how long. Accounts receivable management requires time, effort and money. It requires a polite, but persistent attitude. Skillful collectors are not born, they are carefully trained, hard to find and can be costly to hire on your own.

Effective accounts receivable management requires painstaking diligence, accuracy and good judgement. Even if you do everything right, your customer could still go under, leaving you with nothing. On top of that, too many poor decisions may lead to your bank cutting back your credit line.
