Financial management and credit management play a pivotal role in the success of any business, ensuring stability, growth, and profitability.

However, the complexities of modern financial environments have given rise to numerous challenges for financial directors and credit controllers.

From cash flow management to using multiple time-consuming processes and lack of visibility, these professionals face a multitude of hurdles that demand innovative solutions.

This blog post dives into the pain points faced by financial directors and credit controllers and introduces Invevo as the transformative solution that addresses these challenges head-on.

Struggling with Cash Flow Management

Cash flow, the lifeblood of any organisation, is an area of paramount importance.

Deloitte’s autumn 2022 European CFO survey suggests CFOs are feeling “an all-time high” in their financial and economic uncertainty, topping the previous all-time high of spring 2022.

So arguably, the time for effective cash flow management with accounts receivables is paramount.

Financial directors and credit controllers often grapple with cash flow challenges with their receivables that can severely impact business operations. Inadequate cash flow management can lead to missed opportunities, delayed payments, and an increased stack of unresolved disputes causing further debt.

Invevo’s Streamlined Credit Management Solution:

Invevo addresses these pain points comprehensively with its innovative platform that offers real-time insights and predictive analytics. Automated cash flow projections and reporting empower businesses to foresee potential shortfalls and take proactive measures.

Invevo’s powerful and reliable workflow engine enables you to configure any combination of workflow processes with automated communications to increase cash collection performance and ensure lower bad debt.

With Invevo, you can preview your workflows and test end-to-end processes to see the final results, ensuring that no data slips through the cracks.

Accurate Credit Risk Assessment

Credit risk assessment is another critical concern for financial directors and controllers.

Accurate evaluation of customers' credit risk is essential to prevent bad debt and financial losses. The challenge lies in effectively gauging the credit risk of diverse customers, considering factors like payment history, industry trends, and economic conditions.

Invevo’s Accurate Credit Risk Assessment:

Invevo leverages data analytics and machine learning for precise credit risk assessment.

By analysing historical data, like customer behaviour, Invevo can track every customer's credit risk in real-time and automate decisions to manage credit exposure.

Inside the platform, you can even revise credit limits to manage exposure levels based on real-time credit risk alerts.

Outdated Manual Processes

Manual financial processes, including Excel data entry and manual customer communications (multiple systems for email, SMS, calls) are time-consuming, inefficient and prone to errors.

As businesses grow, manual processes become harder to manage, and data integrity and security concerns arise.

Credit controllers can often feel overwhelmed by the influx of manual tasks, not to mention the added complexity of having to use multiple systems for them.

Invevo Automates Financial Processes

Invevo's platform eliminates manual data entry and customer communications through intelligent automation.

Lack of Visibility Hindering Decision-Making

As businesses grow and scale, their financial processes need to do so alongside it. A common problem we see with FDs is a lack of visibility across their credit control team grows and scales, reducing visibility through hybrid/remote working, and hindering collaboration and effective decision-making.

The lack of visibility and fragmented inadequate technology solutions leads to challenges in accessing real-time data, generating meaningful insights, and effectively communicating with their credit control team.
