2019 Winner: Arthrex

2019 - Arthrex
  • Arthrex was accepting credit cards for almost half of its customers, which resulted in significant fees, margin erosion and operational inefficiencies.

  • By embracing GHX ePay as its preferred method of payment, Arthrex has been able to automate its cash application process, establish predictable payment schedules, reduce outbound collection calls and lower its days sales outstanding (DSOs).

  • Arthrex is currently on track to save over $1M in credit card fees over the next 18 months and achieve an 11-day DSO average for payments received from its ePay customers. This cost savings allows Arthrex to reinvest in its business and provide greater customer service to its client base.
