FAQs

What businesses use Outsourced Ledger Management?

Any business offering credit should consider an OLM solution.  There are generally three types of OLM clients:

  1. Larger businesses wanting to reduce collection costs;
  2. Growth businesses that are strategically outsourcing non-core functions;
  3. Any business looking to reduce slow payers and access the cash tied up in debtors.

Our existing clients span many industries: accounting and legal firms, importers, manufacturers, distributors, Managed Services Providers, Recruitment and ASX/NZX listed businesses.

How much does outsourcing AR cost?

Once we understand your existing AR process, we will suggest a range of best practice improvements. You can then choose to design a better, more cost efficient and scalable solution to fit your circumstances.

Individual client pricing will depend on the size and complexity of your bespoke solution. There is no charge for our initial improvement suggestions.  If you choose to proceed agreements will typically have a small on-boarding fee ($500 to $3,000) and then an ongoing weekly fee.

What reporting do I get?

Our outsourced solutions always integrate with your existing accounting solution provider.  We try to not duplicate existing accounting reporting so instead produce daily, weekly & monthly updates based upon specific account receivable metrics.  Eg Telephone Calls Made, SMS sent, Outstanding actions etc.

Who follows up the slow payers?

Almost all our outsourced ledger management clients elect to have a dedicated account manager who will drive the follow up with your debtors.  This person comes to know both your business and your clients very well. Consider them a remote part of your operations or administration team.  Our ledger managers are all located in Australia or New Zealand.
