“In addition to improving the internal processes, a good customer acceptance process ensures that the DSO drops and the cash flow also improves. At SUEZ we are very satisfied with the results since the new customer acceptance procedure: a decrease in the number of depreciations by more than 70%. This is a big profit because it does not only mean that we have less depreciation, but we can also spend our time much more efficiently. ”
“Since collaborating with CreditDevice, Sligro has undergone an important change when it comes to the approach and perception of credit management. When we still had a classic approach, the focus was purely on debtor risk. Can we do business or not? Now that we have a more proactive approach, we are thinking more in terms of possibilities. So no longer just "it is not possible to do business", but "under what conditions can we do business". "
