How can we help you?
You can also browse the topics below to find what you are looking for.
What is risk management?
Risk management is the first link in the order-to-cash chain. It means taking the necessary steps, using big data, Artificial Intelligence, and machine learning, to make informed and intelligent decisions that help you avoid unpleasant surprises and possible problems with your customers and their payments.
What is e-invoicing?
Invoicing is the second link in the order-to-cash chain. After the order has been placed and you have checked whether there are risks associated with this customer, you can invoice the order. This is often done electronically, via e-invoicing. The software transforms invoice data into a format requested by the customer and automates the delivery of invoices via any desired channel. This gives your customers the option to pay how and when they want. Customers are happy and pay faster. Onguard offers its customers a highly advanced and integrated solution within the order-to-cash platform.
Can I send invoices through WhatsApp?
When you use the Onguard platform, your customers always have the opportunity to make omnichannel payments via SMS, WhatsApp or email, for instance. And if a customer is having trouble paying, the integration with bailiffs and collection agencies makes it possible to hand over a file directly.
What is cash allocation?
Payment processing, the third link in the order-to-cash chain, is the processing of incoming payments and outstanding debtor invoices. Onguard’s intelligent payment processing software MatchMaker uses AI and big data to automate at least 80% of this process. This saves a lot of time, so that credit managers can concentrate on the exceptions. Payment processing is also referred to as reconciliation.
What is collections management?
Debt collection is an integral part of the order-to-cash process that ensures the collection of outstanding debts with the use of a debt collection agency. For various reasons, traditional payment reminders may fail to secure payments from debtors. In this case, payment collection requires a different approach. Deb collections management addresses, follows up and handles unpaid invoices. Onguard's collections and bailiffs software, Collector handles these invoices on a case-by-case basis.
What is bailiff?
Bailiffs are authorised to collect debts on behalf of creditors and have more power than debt collection agencies. For example, a bailiff can serve a summons, obtain an attachment of earnings order against a person’s salary and remove possessions from a property. Bailiffs take these steps in an attempt to ensure that creditors receive the money they are owed. The Onguard order-to-cash platform includes integrated links to bailiffs and law firms that enable your organisation (or its debt collection agency) to share files and monitor the debt collection process. Onguard Collector can be used for both the fifth and sixth stages of the order-to cash process.
