What are Credit Path Rules?

Simply put, a credit path rule is a series of steps to take when some automated credit check fails. To illustrate, let's assume a customer has not paid their bill and is now 7 days overdue. What is your policy here? Who gets notified and what should be done. The answers to these questions are captured in a credit path rule. So, for example, if it is a contract customer, the account rep may get assigned a task to contact the client, while the credit department get a "heads up". If it's a casual advertiser, the credit department gets notified and an email (or letter) can be automatically generated. By setting up multiple credit path rules for all your policies, you are ensuring consistent response patterns.
