The impact of accounts receivable (AR) on business success is unquestionable. Not only is it one of an organization’s largest assets, it deals directly with a different type of asset that doesn’t show up on the balance sheet — customers. So why then, do so many organizations still run their AR processes like it’s the mid-90s?
You have to admit, it is a bit ludicrous. Despite its vital importance, AR is consistently one of the most under-resourced and operationally outdated business processes. One recent study found that 50% of all businesses still use manual processes for managing their receivables.
Fortunately, as this eBook will explore, the reason for AR’s stasis isn’t an unsolvable problem; on the contrary, the strategies for overcoming these challenges are as simple as they are sensible, and any business can do them.

Curves® and Jenny Craig® operate 7,000 Curves clubs and franchises globally and 400 Jenny Craig locations supported by IT service desks in California, Texas, and Australia. The two organizations combined to form Curves Jenny Craig in November 2013. Outdated systems, known internally as “the black hole,” plagued Jenny Craig with inefficient processes and created a lack of accountability. For example, records could not be categorized or prioritized properly, tracked by date or owner, and they could be intentionally hidden in an ambiguous status. Without visibility, Jenny Craig had no way to quantify the impact of their customer service. Mary Carter, manager of IT service, summed it up, “We had no reporting prior Cherwell Service Management.” Curves was in even worse shape as they logged tickets in an Excel® spreadsheet.

that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling
with cloud security. And if your organization is one of
the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service
