Getting paid in a timely manner requires a collective effort and the right technology in place to minimise tensions between people and departments. Regardless of your organisation's configuration, Esker's solutions natively integrate with each other and offer collaborative tools that facilitate the interactions between team members within the I2C process and outside the AR department, as well as improving the visibility into customers’ receivables situation:
Centralised information & real-time data
Data is instantaneously available in the AR solution suite (promise-to-pay, online payment, allocated payment, invoice delivery status, etc.).
A 360-degree view on customers situation:
- Credit KPIs: Credit limit, risk exposure, risk category, etc.
- Business situation: Blocked & undelivered orders, invoices, pending claims, etc.
- Documents: Purchase orders, invoices, remittances, credit applications, contracts, etc.
Unlimited user access
All solutions are based on unlimited user access so anyone involved in the I2C process can access data anytime and get the visibility they need.
Start a conversation with one or several coworkers from any process (credit review, allocation form, claim approval, etc.) to clarify a situation.
Interact quickly with the customer to clarify an allocation or request a claim, supporting document or payment.
Task & dispute management
Create and assign tasks from disputed invoices to accelerate the dispute resolution process.
Cross-solutions business scenario
Easily address the most common business scenario to accelerate resolution (creating a claim from a short payment, requesting a collection call to release a block order, etc.).

Esker Connectivity Suite
Integrates with any ERP or business application.
Connections to customers & AP portals
Esker supports 100+ connections with the most common AP portals (Coupa, Ariba, etc.) as well as customer portals to post invoices and retrieve AR information.

Facilitating collaboration between Sales and Finance teams is crucial. That’s why Esker has equipped our AR solution suite with tools to make it much easier:

What is Accounts Receivable (AR) automation software?
The Accounts Receivable (AR) procedure can be complex and time-consuming, with many different steps that need to be completed in order to ensure timely and accurate payment.

Accounts Receivable automation software allows your business to receive payments faster, manage collections more effectively, and improve the overall customer service. An automated AR process can ultimately free up time, provide visibility over cash flow and reduce DSO for finance departments to focus on more strategic initiatives that will help grow the business.
