APQC’s recent article, Taking a Deeper Look at Uncollectible Balances, discusses various collection practices associated with top performers under the metric of “Total Uncollectible Balances as a Percent of Revenue,” which is part of APQC’s Customer Credit and Invoicing Open Standards Benchmarking survey.
