“Working with the CICM will enable us to reach credit professionals at the forefront of the industry. We are keen to share our experiences and better understand the requirements of members from every aspect of the credit and collections lifecycle. Our strength lies in the ability to ease the digital transformation of managing credit and collections with minimum disruption to the overall process, and by engaging and listening to our partnership members we can continue to progress and remain a trusted leading advisor in the field.

“In conjunction with the CICM, we will be looking at running some webinars and seminar sessions for members in the coming months focussing on the way in which the latest collections management technologies can help companies embrace digital transformation without replacing their core collections processes by eliminating manual collection pains, accelerating payments and empowering the AR department.

“Through sharing our knowledge and expertise with members that wish to harness these technological advancements, we will help bring benefits to them and their customers.”
