In August of 2018, APQC interviewed a credit and collections manager at a global diagnostics company about its AR practices. This case study details how this organization addressed such challenges by instilling a robust approval process and credit scoring model. The organization also organized the credit and collections team in a manner that focuses attention on the highest priorities.
