THE BUSINESS

Refocusing on growth

Comduc has been keeping commercial kitchens across New Zealand safe and clean for the past 31 years. As the leading commercial ducting and hood cleaning service in New Zealand, and with new owners coming on board in 2020, Comduc has recently refocused on growth, including investing in systems and procedures to streamline the business. This is where Debtor Daddy came in.
INDUSTRY: COMMERCIAL KITCHEN CLEANING
BUSINESS SIZE: MEDIUM
CUSTOMER SINCE: AUGUST 2020

THE PROBLEM

Too much work, too little time

Prior to implementing Debtor Daddy, Comduc had acquired a new business with a high volume/low value pricing model. With this new acquisition, and as all the work was currently being done manually through spreadsheets, it quickly became clear that the accounts receivable work was too much for just one person. Comduc knew it was time to establish better processes and systems to support this crucial part of the business.

THE SOLUTION

Accounts receivables automation

The search for support led Comduc to review seven different products, eventually narrowing it down to two – Debtor Daddy being one. After thorough research and the drafting of business cases for each, Comduc selected Debtor Daddy as their partner for accounts receivable tools.

During implementation it became clear that a key benefit of automating their AR was uncovering unknown issues. With greater visibility over accounts, Comduc could resolve disputes in a timely manner, ensuring that both they and their customers knew exactly where things stood. This transparency has also meant that for the first time they could set KPIs for accounts receivables.

“The Debtor Daddy team was flexible from the beginning to meet our needs. They helped us bring full transparency to what was and wasn’t working in our accounts receivable department.”
Glenda Lewis, CFO

  • In the first three weeks, an average of an additional $17,000 in their bank account daily
  • Over 150 disputes down to just 3
  • Over 200 unread collections emails reduced to 22
  • Customer queries now responded to within 24 hours

THE RESULTS

More cash and time available

With clear processes and their AR automated, the Comduc team has more time to dedicate to high value work, greater visibility over accounts and seen an improvement in customer service.

Previously, Comduc staff rarely had time to focus on overdues worth less than $750. Now, with Debtor Daddy automating tasks, the team has time to ensure all outstanding payments are attended to, no matter their value.

Automation has also delivered time-saving to Comduc’s leadership team. With greater visibility over their accounts, the team now knows exactly where things stand with accounts and disputes. Their regular review meeting has now been reduced from an hour to just ten minutes, giving them back more time to spend on high value work instead of admin.
