The title of this blog is self-explanatory. Are your receivables generating cash flow or collecting dust and adding cost and loss to your Company? Many blogs will ask a question and then examine all of the surrounding opinions and stats. With 17 days until End of Year Audits begin, i simply do not have time for that, and more than likely, either do you. This blog is to make you aware, allow you to determine the truth, accept it and rectify the situation NOW.
So I will skip through all of the statistics and research recording that in most businesses your receivables, account for almost 50% of your assets, and I will put aside the fact that within a drowning economy few businesses will survive without a strict receivables policy in place. Lets get to the point.
The point is in THIS economy, in 2009 going into 2010 , there is no grey area any longer. Either your receivables are generating cash flow and acting as an asset for your company, or it is collecting dust and adding extra cost, extra manpower and has now become a generator of lost dollars. To find our witch category you fall into. It is quite simple.
Look at your aging report. What is sitting in the aging buckets 90 days plus outstanding? Now, not only should that amount be cash flow in your bank account and not a negative figure, but those numbers represent far more than just that amount owed. By 90 days those numbers represent money owed to YOUR COMPANY , that has by now been giving to your competition. Those numbers represent man hours spent by your credit and collections department chasing down your money , now considered bad debt. Those numbers represent additional dollars, effort, postage, phone time, employee cost ,as well as energy that is being spent by your company to chase what is now , obviously bad debt .
Although in my next few blogs going into 2010 I will discuss how to NOT have this same issue next year, I think at this point, we have to discuss how to change this proverbial dust magnet NOW.
Any account in the 90+ aging bucket has already received phone calls, letters and final demand notices. NOW is the time to take control back. The only way to do this , is to accept the truth.
Accepting the truth that you have internally exhausted all collection efforts, is not a failing on anyone's part. It is a fact that happens every day. What you do after you have reached that point of acceptance is what makes the definitive factor of failure or success in regards to your receivables. The next step will determine if you can turn the situation around , increase cash flow, reduce DSO, improve credit risk, earn back customer respect and stop wasting time, money and additional efforts.
When looking at the accounts in your 90 + aging buckets, it is obvious you are no longer a factor to those companies. The truth is that at 90+ days, those customers are buying from your competition. The truth is you and your companies are no longer a priority. Those customers are avoiding your calls, letters and messages and they will continue to do so. They do not need you anymore. They have took the money owed to you, and have purchased your product and/or service somewhere else. This is the cold hard truth, although some wish to believe that their clients would never do such a thing, in difficult economic times, businesses will do what it takes to survive. So allowing those accounts to sit in those aging buckets and collect dust as well as adding additional costs, will not gain you any brownie points, it will not make you the martyr , it simply means that you are being irresponsible with your receivables, your company's money and your company's future.
Now, it is time to TAKE CONTROL BACK. You can make the decision to save the day. You can single handedly make the decision to stop being a door mat, increase cash flow, reduce DSO and improve credit risk NOW. And you do not have to spend a single penny. You do not have to spend additional man power. No more wasted postage or phone time. Just decide to regain control, and make one phone call. There are NO upfront costs, no risk to your customer base. In fact, moving forward, you will gain most of these customers back....on COD of course. With 17 days left in 2009, you can immediately have those lost dollars found, deposited into your account before end of year.
