Quadient (Euronext Paris: QDT), a leader in helping businesses create meaningful customer connections through digital and physical channels, announced today that it has published a study conducted by Forrester Consulting, part of a leading global research and advisory firm, showing that YayPay by Quadient, an accounts receivable (AR) management and automation solution, can help reduce days sales outstanding (DSO), improve the customer experience, accurately predict cash flow and reduce lost revenue, with a return on investment (ROI) for a composite customer of over 400% over three years.

- Improved AR workflow automation and team efficiency by 25%
- Reduced legacy costs
- Reduced days sales outstanding (DSO) by 25%
- Improved customer service experience
To produce the study, Forrester interviewed YayPay stakeholders and decision-makers at businesses using YayPay. Forrester then designed a composite organization to model YayPay’s Total Economic Impact for its customers.
“Prior to using YayPay, some customers used spreadsheets exported from ERP modules to manage their accounts receivable processes, particularly around collections and ensuring invoices were being paid. Some were using legacy AR systems,” according to the Forrester TEI study. “These manual systems left customers unable to deal with rapid increases in the number and complexity of invoices each year.”
Forrester found that by deploying YayPay’s platform, the composite organization saved 16 minutes each time it collected on a B2B payment by the second year of using YayPay (11 minutes in year one), avoided hiring seven AR staff, and reduced write-offs. In total, the AR-related cost savings achieved by the composite organization was $815,000, in part generating an ROI of 403%.
“We believe Forrester’s objective and thorough study on the impact that YayPay customers can expect from our platform is vindication that we are transforming the way finance teams work,” said Anthony Venus, chief strategy and product officer, Accounts Receivable Automation at Quadient. “Businesses today face the challenges of a rising number of invoices each year, increasingly complex sales cycles and invoicing, and forgotten invoices. YayPay, powered by AI and machine learning, combines real-time AR, analytics and payment predictions to help businesses increase cash flow while improving team efficiency and productivity.”
