The Credit and Sales Partnership: Credit and Sales Partners in Profit
03/10/2020 8:30 AM PT - 9:30:00 AM PT

Credit and Sales are two sides of a precious currency. One cannot exist without the other. For a company to thrive, Credit and Sales have to cooperate and collaborate in order to maximize sales, minimize bad debt, increase profit, and expedite cashflow.

Please join NACM Commercial Services and Eddy Sumar to explore and gain insight into how Credit and Sales can become partners working harmoniously together.

The webinar will answer the following questions:
• Can credit and sales really become partners? Why? How?
• What is the state of credit today?
• How significant is credit for the economy and for the company?
• Why does conflict exist and persist between credit and sales?
• How can we resolve the conflict?
• How vital is perception?
• What is the integrative approach? How can we use it to change the perception of credit?
• And much more…
