In its simplest form Controlaccount frequently provides clients with "Branded Credit Control Services", this facility comprises the dispatch of in-house reminders under the clients own identity and at pre-determined intervals.

Many companies find it more cost effective to concentrate their credit management function on major or high value accounts and pass the management of lower value or accounts to a specialist provider. Following this strategy the reduction in costs can be significant and providing the most appropriate and professional partner is selected to provide the service, there is no negative impact on customer relations, in-fact this frequently improves as problems are identified earlier resulting in greater customer satisfaction.

Days Sales Outstanding or DSO is a calculation used by a company to estimate their average collection period and measures how well a business accounts receivables are being managed and how efficient credit control departments are performing. The lower the days or ratio, the better it is for your business. If your business has a high days sales ratio, you may struggle to convert sales into cash flow.
