Outsourced Credit Control

Good credit control reduces risk, increases cash flow, and builds business confidence. Recruiting, training, and keeping expert credit controllers are essential to maintain good credit control. What can you do when you are short of credit controllers, or when you acquire another business, and your unpaid invoices threaten to damage your cash flow?

No matter whether your problem is temporary or permanent, STA has the expert resources and systems to step in and provide the solution. Acting in your name, your customers will be unaware that you have outsourced your credit control, and your cash flow will again be positive. It is simple to put into action, it is seamless, and it is not expensive. We work right now for SMEs, blue-chip, and the public sector, managing both commercial and consumer ledgers, home, and overseas.

STA’s outsourced credit control service provides peace-of-mind that your credit management is in the hands of experts, giving you the time to focus on other core business functions.
