The path to profitable growth in the new period is through collection.

Under current conditions, any disruption in collection increases operational costs and risks for companies, leads to reduced working capital, lower profitability and deterioration of collection-related cash flows. The assets of companies whose cash flow is deteriorating due to collection problems and cannot make the investments required by the competition are also at risk. For this reason, Paynet Managing Director Onur Ertürk says companies should focus on collections more than ever. Erturk,

“Businesses need to use technology effectively in order to focus their energies not on collection, but on profitability and growth” said.

The global bankruptcy index points to an annual increase of 15% in 2022, after a decline of 12% in 2020 and 6% in 2021. According to experts, the tightening of monetary policies in countries with increases in interest rates from this year will negatively affect capital flows, especially to developing countries.

As inflation and rising commodity prices increase the importance of working capital around the world, collection management is central to any business that wants to create healthy cash flow.
Because any collection problem creates problems that will directly threaten the existence of the company in this period when working capital is critical.

For example, companies have to use their own resources to continue their business activities due to late payments. This causes cash flow problems and disrupts their operations. Collection delays also prevent companies from seizing opportunities and making the investments they need. This causes them to fall behind in the competition.

The collection problem also creates operational risks. As collection delays turn into bad debts, the business can face serious losses because it cannot receive payment for the product it sells. The problem of collection also increases costs. In the event that payment for a product sold is received in a deferred period, the costs incurred by the company to produce or purchase the same product increase considerably, especially in the high inflation environment in which we find ourselves.
