Optimize your returns through innovative and customer-centric dunning

First party-collections

Retain customers, avoid collections and optimize return flows

The dunning process as part of receivable management is an important component of the order-to-cash process and serves to ensure the collection of accounts receivable. It comes into play once an invoice is not paid promptly and the creditor is entitled to send a payment reminder. This is usually done within the scope of commercial respectively pre-litigation dunning.

Delayed payment does not need to end a good customer relationship. Modern communication media, diverse payment methods, and flexible payment options will secure quick debt collection and rather strengthen the customer relationship. An optimized dunning process, therefore, plays a key role in receivable management, as it avoids the more expensive collection process.

Trust the experts

Target-oriented innovations and comprehensive advice

The focus should remain on maintaining the long-term relationship between companies and end customers even in the event of a default of payment. In order to handle it in the most customer-friendly and efficient manner, it is usually necessary to address customers in a targeted manner and to create an IT environment that enables, for example, the control of communication channels and tonality.  Individual and digital solutions are just as important for the payment and settlement of a delayed invoice as a tailored and comprehensible dunning message so that your brand is optimally represented. We provide you with customised solutions for first-party debt collection in order to target your customers directly.
