Over the last 15 years, Cforia has been keeping track of Working Capital Improvements realized through Order-to-Cash (OTC) Best Practices used by Cforia clients within ten critical areas and will share the findings at the ICTF event. The newest version of the Cforia.connect Collaborative Knowledgebase, which allows Cforia’s global user community to share best practice reports and process workflows via a secured social network.  Cforia.connect is a repository of proven best practice workflows that have delivered significant benefits to their client companies.  Any Cforia customer may now benefit from the collective knowledgebase of the global user community and change OTC processes and priorities in minutes.

Chris Caparon, Chief Operating Officer of Cforia commented, “We enable industry leading companies, who have realized amazing working capital and OTC benefits with Cforia Software, to upload their best reports and best practices workflows into the Cforia Collaborative Knowledgebase of Best Practices called Cforia.connect.  Any Cforia client can “tap” into a wealth of customer experience by downloading and customizing reports and workflows in less than five minutes.  The benefit of our OTC solutions has been expanded with the collective shared best practices of a global user community.  Improved financial outcomes distributed all over the earth in real time.  That is the power of Cforia.connect.”

Cforia will also provide insights from the recently released white paper published in the Credit Research Foundation (CRF) Business Journal at the ICTF Symposium. The article, written by Caparon, focuses on the huge cost of Deductions in the U.S. today. Using conservative Deductions averages and taking the United States Federal Reserve 2015 Q1 calculation for “Non-Financial Business; Trade Receivables; Assets” of $3.422 Trillion dollars, Deductions represent a $34.4B to $171.1B annual problem, in the U.S. alone.
