As a marketer, you know how critical it is to understand how your marketing efforts contribute to the bottom line. There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes to generate sales pipeline and ultimately revenue. And by becoming a data-driven marketer that’s in tune with the right metrics, you can demonstrate marketing’s contribution to both. Metrics illustrate the impact that you and your team are driving in the organization, which is critical to ensure you have the budget and resources you need to deliver optimum business outcomes. Without metrics, it’s nearly impossible to measure the success of your activities and identify elements to optimize in future campaigns. And without them, there’s no way to determine your return on investment (ROI).

The impact of accounts receivable (AR) on business success is unquestionable. Not only is it one of an organization’s largest assets, it deals directly with a different type of asset that doesn’t show up on the balance sheet — customers. So why then, do so many organizations still run their AR processes like it’s the mid-90s? You have to admit, it is a bit ludicrous. Despite its vital importance, AR is consistently one of the most under-resourced and operationally outdated business processes. One recent study found that 50% of all businesses still use manual processes for managing their receivables. Fortunately, as this eBook will explore, the reason for AR’s stasis isn’t an unsolvable problem; on the contrary, the strategies for overcoming these challenges are as simple as they are sensible, and any business can do them.

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness.

Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain. Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
