Collecting Receivables Is a Team Effort, and Fully Utilizing Microsoft Dynamics GP Can Pay Big Dividends

Every so often I've had enough and it's time to sit down and have a straight talk. This isn't quite an intervention, but it's getting there. Whether the recession is really over or not, it still feels like a recession out there.  So why are companies still doing stupid things with receivables and collections?  There, I've said it.

I'm not talking about Dynamics GP yet, we'll get there. It's time to take responsibility first.

I spend a lot of time in mid-size companies, where receivables and collections always seem to be an issue. I think it's related to the size and relative maturity of mid-size firms.

Larger firms can dedicate folks to collections. In mid-size companies the job is often shared among many people. Most people don't like confrontation and when it's only part of their job, it's the part that gets done the least, and last.
