The payment performance of customers can vary significantly. If customers pay late or do not pay at all, this can lead to serious bottlenecks for a company. In order to avoid this and instead to ensure the sustainable profitability of the company, SAP Credit Management helps you to analyse your customers‘ respective credit history. Thus, you can better forecast the payment performance of each of your customers and take countermeasures where necessary. With the module you can centrally create credit profiles for each of your business partners. As a consequence, you have all relevant information concerning creditworthiness, payment performance, credits and credit limits centrally available that you can use for evaluating orders. Customers can be grouped by default risk. Negative credit limit evaluations are automatically entered in a work list that needs to be further processed. In addition to this effective control mechanism you can also assess your overall credit portfolio. For this, the SAP Credit Management module is directly connected to the SAP BI Credit Manager Portal.
