How is UOB Direct Debit applicable to businesses?

Company I is a tuition centre that receives 100 cheques a month from its students. Handling cheques is manual and tedious process for its staff. With Direct Debit collections, the company has greater control over its receipts, and has substantially improved overall productivity of its staff.

Company J often has to manually track and chase for late payments from its tenants. The finance team spends time investigating and following up with tenants for payments. Ever since the company switched to Direct Debit collections, the finance team can reconcile the receivables in less time and with greater accuracy.
