What is AR Automation and Why Does It Matters

AR Automation, or Accounts Receivable Automation, is the software used to automate all invoice payment reminders. By using customizable workflows and email, SMS and voicemail templates, one can send thousands of reminders to customers for past due invoices at a click of a button.

AR Automation frees up time for AR teams to focus on higher-value work, such as chasing payments and getting the cash in quickly and mitigating bad debt.

AR Automation is closely linked with the growth in the number of invoices created every month. The new recurring, usage based or subscription billing popularized by Zuora are driving an explosion of the number of invoices and forces collection agents to use automation software to collect payments.
