Charlotte, NC, October 13, 2005 --( PayStream Advisors, Inc. announces the release of its report titled Receivables and Collection Management: A Buyer’s Guide to Collections Automation Solutions. This in-depth research report highlights the growing trend of companies seeking Receivables and Collections Management (RCM) solutions to lower their Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) and to manage the risk inherent to their collection process. PayStream's latest research reveals that organizations are turning to a rapidly maturing set of technologies known as RCM solutions to streamline their collections processes as a result of increasing emphasis on cost containment and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. In addition to providing a rich background into the applications of RCM solutions in the Accounts Receivable space, the report provides specific information about the following vendors and their solutions: 9ci, Aceva, Cforia, eCredit, GETPAID, I-Many, and Oracle.

According to Dave Schmidt, the lead analyst for this research report “Worldwide spending on RCM solutions will increase from $4.5 billion in 2004 to $5.5 billion by 2008, a compound annual growth rate of 5.04 percent. During this period, the growth of outsourced RCM solutions that involve software or ASP implementations are expected to outpace the growth of in-house developed solutions. All things considered, we believe the RCM marketplace has finally attained critical mass. While the RCM market is maturing, it remains youthful. New entrants are regularly popping up on our radar screen and finding new and better ways to solve common collection management problems.” The report concludes with analytical insights that allow readers to compare and contrast solution functionality across all of the solutions and to identify the solution that best suits their requirements.
