Unlike many other businesses, our Accounts Receivable portfolio is the largest asset of our company. It falls upon my Credit Department to maximize the value of that portfolio. We truly strive to minimize bad debt expense while maintaining an acceptable level of risk. This means at times taking on elevated risk companies as customers to increase revenue while minimizing loss risk through additional security, guarantees or shorter payment terms. View full article

Taking the Mystery Out of Lis Pendens

by Carolyn Thompson, Meadow Gold Dairies

Lis Pendens, what does that mean? The literal meaning of "lis pendens" is Latin for "suit pending." This refers to any pending law suit in which the title of real property is encumbered with a law suit. The notice is to be filed in the County Recorders office where the property is located that is involved in the legal suit. Recording a lis pendens against a piece of property alerts a potential purchaser or lender that the property's title is in question. View full article

Economic Indicator with Credit Department Insights

The Credit Manager's Index (CMI), NACM's economic indicator, started taking the market's pulse in January 2003. Since its inception, the CMI has been an immensely powerful and startlingly accurate economic predictor. As more credit managers utilize and understand the CMI they realize that the more participation - the stronger it becomes. Increased participation will allow regional and sector breakouts.
