A/R Collections B2B

Inventive Ideas handles collections only with documented proof that a legitimate payable is owed.   This is a higher ground service offered only to selected clients with a history of integrity in business practices.

In these tough times, we believe good business practices must be supported through timely payment for services and bad business practices must end quickly, protecting other vendors from harm.

The increase in social networks, company review sites, blogs and online news information make it easier than ever for good companies to be rewarded and poor companies to be reported.  

Inventive Ideas uses the tools available to encourage legitimate payments to be made timely.   It’s a small world with constantly changing internet activity.    You can trust Inventive Ideas to leverage our excellence in communication and persuasion with aggression and tenacity to protect companies hurt by poor A/P practices.

Always, our goal is reconciliation.  We make every effort to collect outstanding payables with kindness, dignity and respect for the first few attempts.   However, if our requests are met with unreturned phone calls and avoided emails, our collection efforts escalate quickly to include the following phases.  

During phases 1 though 3, we work on a flat fee hourly rate and take no percentage of the receivable.   99% of the time, companies who plan to remain in business or whom want to protect the brand identity of asset acquisitions will pay what they owe in the first two phases.   For those who do not, Inventive Ideas may negotiate a purchase of the receivable and move to Phase 4 collection efforts.

Phase 1—Expended company wide attempts to collect. (60% success)

Phase 2—BBB report, warnings on internet review sites. (90% success)

Phase 3—Daily calls and expanded social network posts.

Phase 4—Letters to editor of local newspapers, posts on forums, business articles submitted to local reporters / bloggers. (99.9 % success from companies still in business)

Excerpt of Phase 1 plan:

Phase 1—  average 1-2 hours over 2-5 days.  60% pay their bills at this point.
