Order to cash is one of the organisation’s most crucial and potentially complex processes that touches every function in an organisation. Yet often, it is discounted by executives. Essentially, this is a set of business processes that involve receiving and fulfilling customer requests, whether for goods or services.
There are many ways this system can become overcomplicated, costly and inefficient. As it is common for organisations to have different systems, the misalignment between the two systems can cause problems when a merger or acquisition occurs. Similarly, when organisations expand into other countries, their cash systems may require adaptation to local procedures, regulations, and practices. This causes people pain resulting in low morale, disengagement, sickness and people choosing to leave the business.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
An effective order to cash system is fundamental to operational excellence customer experience and can even increase revenue by reducing additional expenses caused by inefficiency. There are three measurable differences once an effective order to cash system is introduced:
- Reduction in the cost to serve
- Increased staff morale and engagement
