Accounts Receivable Management Feed Link

Accounts Receivable Management

Within a credit granting business, accounts receivable management (ARM) refers to policies and procedures for a company’s disposition of accounts receivable — or money owed on credit accounts — including measurements, aging, charge-offs, debt collection, and debt sales. ARM divisions increase the revenue of its parent company even though they are typically quite capital-intensive with state-of-the-art systems and extensive frontline staffing.

Accounts receivable management (ARM) can also refer to the industry that aids credit grantors in recovering debt before or after charge-off. This can include first and third party debt collection agencies, collection law firms, and debt buyers.
