The challenge – steadily rising DSO and manual collection processes

Tenth Revolution Group had challenges with increasing DSO coupled with a steadily rising number of invoices and time-consuming manual credit management processes.

The receivables team were using the reports downloaded from an accounting system for debt collection, which does not work as a cash collection solution.


  1. Steadily rising DSO
  2. Volume of invoices increasing
  3. Collection, reporting and prioritization were manual tasks
  4. Needed to invest in a system or increase headcount to hit KPIs
One of our main challenges was that we wanted to implement the solution quickly. It was great because Sidetrade were able to deliver what we were after in such a short space of time; we’re a business that doesn’t like to hang around!
