Stamp out slow pays with an improved billing experience
Accounts receivable (A/R), also known as trade receivables or trade credit, is the amount that customers owe a company for goods and services that have been provided. In most business entities this is typically done by generating an invoice and delivering it to the customer which is to be paid within an established timeframe called credit or payment terms. If your company is like most, much of your cash is tied up because you’ve been lending it to your customers through trade credit, providing free, short-term loans to your buyers.
