The impact of accounts receivable (AR) on business success is unquestionable. Not only is it one of an organization’s largest assets, it deals directly with a different type of asset that doesn’t show up on the balance sheet — customers.

Fortunately, as this eBook will explore, the reason for AR’s stasis isn’t an unsolvable problem; on the contrary, the strategies for overcoming these challenges are as simple as they are sensible, and any business can do them.
