6 Collections Form Collection Record Header Collection Record Detail

7 Oracle Advanced Collections - Profile Tab

8 Profile Tab The Profile tab is the first tab in the Collections Center window and appears on the Collections tab in eBusiness Center. It provides a snapshot of delinquent customers by providing information on invoices and promises based on a rolling 12 month calendar. It provides information about the last payment made by the customer and the last customer interaction. The Delinquencies table displays all transactions that have a status of delinquent.

9 Oracle Advanced Collections – History Tab

10 History Tab Use the History tab to view historic information based on the selected type, such as dunning or adjustments. Collectors have to review and prove "due diligence" for collections calls. Collections agents can see information about previous interactions that occurred with a customer about issues relating to collections activities.

11 Oracle Advanced Collections - Accounts Tab

12 Accounts Tab The Account tab displays Information about the selected account. Click the Details Button for more information about the selected account. Additionally, the Customer Master is available from this screen.

13 View Credit InformationView Existing Role Information that was Entered in Oracle Receivables Accounts Tab - Detail Button Click Cancel to return to the Collections window

14 View Site Info for the CustomerView Account Relationships Accounts Tab - Detail Button Cont Click Cancel to return to the Collections window

15 When you create relationships between any customer accounts in Oracle Receivables, you indicate that the relationship is either one-way or reciprocal. When you apply receipts to an invoice in a one-way relationship, the parent account can apply receipts to the invoices in the related account, but receipts in the related account cannot be applied to the parent account's invoices. In other words, the parent can pay for the child but the child cannot pay for the parent in a one-way relationship. When applying invoices to commitments, an account can only apply invoices to commitments that it owns or to commitments of a parent customer account to which it is related. Reciprocal account relationships allow parties to pay each other's debit items and enter invoices against each other's commitments. You can define an unlimited number of customer account relationships. Guidelines for Account Relationships

16 Oracle Advanced Collections - Transaction Tab

17 Transactions Tab In the Transactions tab select one of the following transaction classes for a selected account and date range: Invoice, Credit memo, Debit memo, Chargeback, Deposit Guarantee, Select a transaction and click Transaction Details. The Transaction Details window displays the line items for the transaction. If you want to send a copy of the transaction to the customer, then click Send Copy.

18 Disputes – Transaction Tab Debtors often refuse to pay invoices because they do not believe they owe money for a variety of reasons. Use this procedure to submit a dispute against an invoice (whether or not it is delinquent). Once created, a dispute is sent to Oracle Receivables via the Credit Memo Workflow for review and resolution. In the Transactions tab, select the invoice and click Transaction Details. If the customer is disputing a specific invoice line item, then perform the following steps: Select Specific Invoice Lines from the Dispute Section LOV. Select the line item. Enter the dispute amount or dispute quantity for the line. If the invoice has no line items, then the line-item related dispute fields are not accessible. The application calculates the dispute amount if you enter a dispute quantity. The dispute amounts are totaled in the Dispute Total field. Next

19 If the customer wants to dispute a section of the invoice, then use the LOV in the Dispute Section field to select one of the following: Lines subtotal Shipping Tax Total The total amount for the selected section appears in the Dispute Totals field. Earlier disputes are not included in the total. If the customer's dispute is over an expected discount, enter the discount amount. The amount is calculated using the entered percent against the invoice total prior to shipping and tax. Select a dispute reason. Optionally, enter a note. Click Dispute. Disputes – Transaction Tab Cont

20 A dispute confirmation message containing a dispute number appears and can be used as a reference between customer and collector. Confirmation of the dispute is sent automatically if the necessary profiles are set and a default One-to-One Fulfillment template is defined. The dispute creates a Credit Memo Request in Oracle Receivables. While invoices are in dispute they are no longer labeled as delinquent. Disputed transactions are recorded in Interaction History, including the transaction number, class, type, date, status, amount, remaining amount, customer name, and organization. Disputes – Transaction Tab Cont

21 Oracle Advanced Collections - Lifecycle Tab

22 The Lifecycle tab provides a view of all of a customer's delinquencies. Complicated delinquencies can involve placing customers on credit or service hold (used only with Lease Management), bringing suit to get payment, repossessing and reselling assets to cure delinquencies, write off of assets, or customer bankruptcy. The Lifecycle Tab, in conjunction with various HTML interfaces used by collections specialists and managers, supports these latter stage delinquency processes. Lifecycle Tab

23 Oracle Advanced Collections - Aging Tab

24 Aging Tab Cont

25 You can view your customer's outstanding account balances on the Aging tab in Collections. The Aging tab opens using the default aging bucket defined when you set up Collections, but you can view account balances using any aging bucket defined in Oracle Receivables. You can modify your display by specifying an aging bucket or by choosing to summarize open credits. Collections calculates and displays the total outstanding amounts for the current data level view, which can be by customer, bill to, or account. Aging per individual delinquency is not available. You can view finance charges, approved and pending adjustments, and amounts in dispute. You can view the amount of receipts at risk. If you select to summarize open credits, you can view credits not aged for unapplied cash, on account cash, on account credits, cash claims, and prepayments. Select the Transaction button to view all transactions for an aging bucket line. From there you can select a transaction and view transaction details, process payments, or enter a dispute. Aging Tab
