Collection effectiveness index: Telling the entire credit and collections story
Your Collection Effectiveness Index (CEI), when coupled with Days Sales Outstanding (DSO), tells a holistic credit and collections story.
CEI is a calculation of a company’s ability to retrieve accounts receivable (A/R) from their customers. In other words, CEI compares the amount collected in a given time period to the amount of receivables available for collection. A CEI near 80 percent or above indicates a highly effective collections process, while a CEI 50 percent and below is considered low and should be further evaluated.
