Why it matters

Timely billing of customers and receiving payments are critical to the cash management process of a company. The lesser the duration between the date of service delivery and billing the lesser the time between when a company recognizes revenues and receives the cash. Billing systems help the finance teams to understand whether and when customers are paying their invoices and managing the collections process more generally.
