Revolving Receivables automatically cycles customer payments based on plans designed around your business rules. Choose from interest rate options using credit scores. Installment Receivables creates and maintains plans for multiple contracts. From one comprehensive screen, you can activate, delete, cancel, reinstate, refinance or extend contracts, defer payments, and adjust due dates.
The Collections module enables retailers to manage customer debts, track account history, assign “Promise to Pay” & “Call Backs”, and create collection letters. Assign late fees and utilize the Repossession Tool to calculate inventory depreciation.
Consumer Credit Application
Consumer Credit Application integrates the consumer finance application process for either in-house or third-party financing by collecting customer information and transmitting it directly to certified Credit Services or Finance Vendors. This provides the retailer with settlement and account reconciliation rolls up to STORIS Accounting & GL.
Third-Party Finance Queue
Third-Party Finance manages all touch points with finance providers including application, approval, authorization, settlement, and account reconciliation from the Furniture POS. With the Finance Queue, a single credit application can be submitted against the retailer’s available options for primary, secondary, and tertiary lenders with the customer’s approval. This fast-tracks the application process while getting customers more successful approvals and higher approval values.
Customer Facing Application
To promote security and privacy when collecting sensitive customer data, the Customer Facing Application (CFA) is the ideal solution to protect retailers. Formerly, sensitive customer information was dictated to a showroom associate, which ran the risk of being insecure and uncomfortable. Now customers enter their own data into a secure online application that can be filled out in a retailer’s showroom or at home through the retailer’s website. CFA delivers a more positive customer credit application experience for all parties. CFA can be used along with the Finance Queue for added convenience.
