Market leading software and services provider Safe Computing has launched their new, dedicated credit control products and services website. The site marks the final piece of the rebranding exercise from Topaz Credit Control to Safe Credit Control, as a result of the acquisition of Topaz by Safe Computing.  Already an established product in the credit control and query management software market, Safe Credit Control has a completely new look and feel and contains lots of new features, described in detail on the new web site.

Customer relationship management systems are an increasingly hot topic in the IT related press. Organisations are increasingly seeking to automate their ‘front office’ activities where possible, and see credit control as very much a ‘back office’ function. Traditionally, credit control is a reactive exercise, controllers chasing late payment as Rottweilers, not the cuddly teddy bears associated with CRM. Adopting a softer, CRM based approach to credit control is, as the name suggests, about cultivating a relationship with the customer.  By employing CRM techniques, we give the customer the impression they are special, and that the credit controller has a holistic view of their account and the person they are communicating with. Any software system should therefore be able to provide all relevant customer facing personnel with a comprehensive view of all dealings with the company. An all round, sometimes called ‘three sixty degree’, view.

It seems acknowledged that typical payment terms are usually 30 days, but according to research average debtor days, in some cases extend to  61 days*. Remarkably many companies appear not to place sufficient focus on such excessive debtor days. However in times of recession, where cash flow is one of the most important things to manage, who can really afford to wait that long?

Travel and subsistence regulations, do you comply? As recently reported in recruiter magazine*, several recruitment companies seem to be falling foul of regulations governing the travel and subsistence scheme. Travel benefit is a government scheme which utilises the right for a worker to state his or her normal place of work. The worker can then claim for travel and subsistence to and from their work location, and their home. The Inland Revenue has approved this for UK agencies, however agencies from other countries will need to negotiate the right to use this scheme with UK Inland Revenue.

Safe solution to reducing debtor days Average debtor days are 30 or more – but in a recession, who can really afford to wait that long? Rather than manually chasing after the traditional 30 days, Safe Computing’s software tries a softer, earlier, automated communication. The impact is a vast reduction in debtor days,  and better customer relations.

New laws for temporary workers come into effect in the UK from October and in Ireland from December, 2011. Called the agency workers directive (AWD), this change impacts upon anyone employing temporary workers for more than twelve weeks in one assignment. It means new entitlements for temps akin to permanent staff after just a short period of continuous service, and information for some of which, must be provided to them from the first day of their assignment.

Safe has gained membership into the prestigious professional body, the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo). To do so Safe had to provide 10 customer references to customers in the professional staffing market place.  APSCo represents the ‘interests of organisations engaged in the acquisition of business professionals’. Typically this includes blue chip market leading recruitment agencies. Representing a good cross section of staffing, APSCo is ruled by their own members, as an elected board is selected from within their own membership. This professional body provides a voice for the staffing industry. They raise standards for the sector, lobby Government and promote best practise.

Held in the capital city of London, the Finance Directors Forum on 5 May, was the event of the year for senior finance professionals. Attendees to previous events of this kind have included financial directors, finance managers, and even chief executive officers.

It was a wonderfully sunny day for the Safe annual summer barbeque with the highest turnout ever seen.   Held on the banks of the Thames, near to all the local main tourist attractions and the corridors of power, this truly was a prestigious event. From the luxury sailing vessel, moored beneath the stunning Jubilee Bridge, the London Eye and Big Ben, were clearly visible. However in true Safe down to earth style, and whilst in the glamorous surroundings of the R. S. Hispaniola, this was no black tie affair. A refreshing change to pomp and ceremony of other functions, the dress code was relaxed in favour of ordinary working day attire.

Steve Radford from Safe Computing gave up his bank holiday weekend to fish. This was not just for fun though, he was raising funds to help our heroes and veterans, who are fighting or have fought in, the war in Afghanistan.
