Credit management process

The Collect Wise Consultancy Program

In March 2023, Collect Wise initiated a four-step consultancy program to address GLD’s credit control challenges:

Stage 1: Review & Assessment

The Collect Wise consultancy team thoroughly reviewed GLD’s credit control systems, tools, and existing processes. This step aimed to identify areas for improvement and streamline the credit control workflow.

Stage 2: Recommendations & Proposal

Based on the findings from the initial review, Collect Wise generated a comprehensive report outlining specific recommendations for process enhancements. The report covered topics such as order to cash process, credit management policy, terms and conditions recommendations, payment options, and termination clauses.

Stage 3: Implementation Support

To facilitate the smooth adoption of recommended changes, Collect Wise offered hands-on support during the implementation phase. This ensured that GLD’s credit control process underwent a seamless transition.

Stage 4: Test & Review

During the Test & Review stage, Collect Wise diligently monitored the performance of the newly implemented credit control process at Go Live Data. As a result, aged debt was significantly reduced within a short period, ensuring improved cash flow and financial stability. Building on this success, Collect Wise provided valuable recommendations for future enhancements, aimed at optimising credit control efficiency, and enhancing customer satisfaction.

With a commitment to ongoing improvement, Go Live Data is well-positioned to continue its growth trajectory while maintaining a robust and customer-centric credit management approach.
