In addition, the DSO (Daily Sales Outstanding) fell from 300 days to a fluctuating 45-60 days within 2 years, which was achieved by reviewing the collection strategies. As a result this increased the company profile for customer service and made the finance department and the business as a whole more efficient and effective. As the company grew, the relevant processes and procedures were reviewed to cater for the needs of the business without blemishing the re-established company profile.
