About the Webinar

The relationship between credit managers and their sales departments plays an important role in the outcome of AR credit & collections. How can these two departments help facilitate sales growth? What do you do if there’s a demand for increased sales, but insufficient customer financial data to support a sale? How can the sale be facilitated?

Join Ascend’s Syed Ghani, a highly experienced credit manager in U.S., and Virgile Rouyer, a skilled sales and commercial manager in Belgium, as they discuss how they each have a role in their company’s growth.   Among the topics to be discussed: 

  • Developing good communications to aid credit and sales
  • Resolving billing disputes 
  • How to deal with high-risk accounts through collaboration 
  • Blocked orders
  • Customer repayment plans 
  • Country  risk
