Consumer Goods Industry Deduction Management Services
Smyyth’s full range of Accounts Receivable and Reconciliation and Profit Recovery solutions are custom tailored for consumer goods companies. Our decades in the business have demonstrated that huge profits are lost due to inadequate skills or software to drive the auditing, resolution and recovery of excessive customer deductions. Even in the best managed companies, this profit leakage is often budgeted as a “cost of doing business”. Our experience is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Cash recoveries can be doubled while rooting out the systemic, repeat causes of these infractions. We have the skills, staff and the special Carixa software to solve your problem of any scale or scope.
Deductions: Plague on profits
