“The reporting within Versapay improves collections because we're identifying things earlier in the process. It also makes our life easier because now information is getting disseminated out to other folks who can help them. I think that really helps bring the whole team's knowledge to bear on collections, which then would help in lower balances, earlier collections, all the kinds of tangible things you want to see.”

Intelligent collections FAQs

Put simply, “collections” is one part within the greater “accounts receivable” process. While accounts receivable refers to the money an entity is owed, collections refers to the actions taken to collect those funds.

While the process differs for each company and AR collections software, there are a few common steps:

  • Step 1: After a purchase is made by a buyer, the supplier's software automatically creates an invoice containing details like the price, items purchased, and payment terms.
  • Step 2: The invoice is sent—most frequently via email—to the buyers’ accounts payable department.
  • Step 3: The seller’s AR collections software may send reminders of upcoming payment due dates, and will very likely send additional requests should payment become overdue.

At Versapay, our AR collections software keeps payments coming in on time in several ways:

  1. Zero-touch collections: By automating payment reminders, you can ensure customers know what they owe and when payment is due.
  2. Real-time communications and dispute management: Chat with your customers over the cloud to manage disputes and answer questions as they arise.
  3. Timely notifications: Receive notifications and other timely prompts to stay on task and focus on your collections priorities.

The AR collections period shows the average time it takes a business to collect receivables and convert them into cash. While average collection period varies by business and industry, shorter is generally seen as better. There are exceptions, such as government contracts, which have an almost guaranteed chance of getting paid but tend to get slowed down by bureaucratic challenges.
