(a) Order-To-Cash Defined:
The Order-To-Cash process comprises key activities in the financial supply chain, including order management, credit analysis and approval, invoice and billing, cash collections, dispute resolution, cash application, and financial analysis and reporting. The process is typically non-core, complex and labor intensive, making it among the back-office functions best suited for Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). However, Order-To-Cash is also critical as the function significantly impacts companies' cash position, cost structure, and customer relationships.
