According to the Customer Deduction Survey, 43% of B2B companies report no time limit for deduction aging. These aged, unresolved disputes ranged from one month to a couple of years old. The main reason behind this came out to be a lack of account prioritization. Credit Managers failing to manage disputes are jeopardizing their company's' bottom line. The survey highlighted the challenge faced by companies resolving deductions. Credit managers were either chasing valid deduction accounts or were unable to prioritize invalid accounts better. This lead to more bad debt write-offs that further resulted in profit leakage of their company.
