Historically, companies have viewed billing strictly from an operations perspective -- get invoices and statements out the door as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. But did you realize there are strategic considerations to the billing function as well - ranging from enhanced customer retention, brand loyalty and cross-selling opportunities along with improved cash flow, dispute management and customer service? From this perspective, it's not just about bills going out; it's also about cash coming in.
