frequently asked Questions

Using debt collection software allows accounting and finance teams to save considerable processing time and reduce sources of error. Identifying overdue customers and following them up effectively takes time.

For the work to be carried out correctly and quickly, the ideal is to rely on a follow-up tool, systematically up-to-date in terms of sales accounting and customer payments. This then makes it possible to identify the list of unpaid invoices without too many problems.

Concretely, the installation of recovery software will allow you to:

  • Better visualize your customer outstandings: which customer account is late in payment? Of how much ?
  • Reduce your DSO and optimize your BFR
  • Preserve your level of cash
  • Focus your efforts on value-added tasks

A collection software is primarily used to follow up with your customers so that they pay your invoices on time and as quickly as possible. All customer reminder solutions have almost all the same basic functionalities: automated reminder, creditor dashboard, grouped reminder…. And the majority offers a payment solution.

These follow-up software are generally easy to set up. Because they integrate with most organizations and IT infrastructures. Moreover, they are almost all multilingual.

Some recovery software also offer specific features such as:

  • Predictive scoring of customer payment behavior.
  • The cash forecast module
  • Multi-currency management
  • Automation of bank reconciliation

Many collection software vendors offer monthly pricing.

Some advance a price of between 5 and 10% of the invoice amount, while others offer a fixed rate.

Difficult to determine exactly which is the cheapest among all the solutions since everything depends on the size of the company, the number of invoices submitted as well as any additional costs.

The choice of recovery software is conditioned by several criteria:

  • Your ambitions for growth: choose agile software that will evolve with your company and your employees
  • The functionalities of the tool and the ease of use: The main goal of your follow-up tool is to simplify the tasks and the work of your teams in order to cash in faster and better.
  • The feasibility of integration with your accounting tool

To increase your productivity, it is better to ensure that you have access to expert technical support. You can train an in-house expert, or benefit from the advice of an external consultant capable of supporting you from the needs identification phase to deployment.

Our EXPERT BFR consultants, all former corporate credit managers and using proven methods, advise you while remaining aligned with your business and your performance indicators throughout the project. The accompaniment takes place in 6 stages:

  • Definition of needs and drafting of specifications
  • Identification of appropriate recovery tools
  • Tender
  • Implementation plan
  • Acceptance monitoring, configuration and deployment of the tool
  • User advice and training

Implementing new software in a company is not easy. Some will be reluctant, while others will welcome the change with open arms. You must therefore find a solution adapted to the culture of your company and its environment. Before choosing your collection software, make sure you have an overall view of your accounts receivable and the credit management issues specific to your business.
