How we’ve helped othersRead Case Studies
Using the Corporate Monitoring service NCS has been providing, our company has already identified two accounts with open credit limits which could have resulted in material losses: First, a $100,000 open credit limit and open accounts receivable. NCS identified the account as inactive with the State. Subsequent conference calls with the CFO of our customer found that the customer was “very close to running out of cash and it is unlikely to be funded further by outside investors.” Given such dire status provided verbally as well as the State standing, we reduced the limit to $0. Second, a $250,000 open credit limit. NCS identified the account as inactive with the State. HTA had no open exposure and decided to reduce the limit to $0 until the business returns to active status or until a sufficient explanation can be provided. As a general rule, HTA does not do business with companies that are inactive with the State without sufficient explanation and understanding.
We’ve used NCS to protect a significant portion of our receivables over the past year…and with great success! By implementing a lien program, we have reduced our DSO by 20% in the last 12 months.
We had a situation with a large volume customer with no personal guaranty who closed their doors unexpectedly…leaving us with a past due balance of $189,000…Without us being a secured creditor with a UCC filing in place, I truly believe that we would have only received cents on the dollar under the unsecured general creditors. Sysco Boston has been paid due to the utilization of the UCC and the services of NCS. NCS makes this process easy.
The improved turnaround time on lien waivers saves us 100 hours a month compared to our previous process. We quickly generate, review, and email our lien waivers. I can provide my customer with their waiver in 10 minutes or less. We have seen an increase in customer satisfaction because of this performance improvement!
