Poor Deduction Management is Leaving Money on the Table

By C.J. Wimley | Monday, July 21, 2014
COO for receivables,
SunGard's corporate liquidity business
We recently conducted a comprehensive market study to benchmark global credit and collections practices. Our study showed that 55% of companies hold up the entire invoice once there is a dispute recorded, rather than splitting the remainder off and entering the disputed portion into a workflow process. So basically, more than half of the companies we surveyed (with revenues over $1 billion) are leaving money on the table by not segregating out the disputed portion of an invoice and collecting on the remainder. Deduction management remains a time consuming challenge for most credit departments. Resolving a dispute almost always involves at least one other group outside of collections, with the two most prevalent being sales and customer service. However, one of the biggest challenges is often communicating across these groups and with the customer. For this reason, most companies institute some level of workflow automation that contemplates a centralized point of access for all parties.

An interesting by-product of FBAR has been the increasing number of bank account administration improvement projects within corporate treasury departments.  The legal demand for accurate, comprehensive bank account information has been a key driver for starting these projects.  Too many treasury departments find themselves with
