|German term or phrase: Debitorenmanagement|
|"Es liegen auch Billing- & Debitorenmanagement, sowie Kundenbindung in der Verantwortung dieses Bereiches."|
A discription of the duties of the customer service branch. is "debitoren" meant as "accounts recievable" or merely "credit"? any suggestions appreciated, thanks!
is what I would say as a snappy term for "accounts receivable management"
Check out the following glossary entry:
"Credit control: The management of the debts owed to the company, including vetting potential clients for credit worthiness, following up late payments, and pursuing bad debts"

accounts receivable management
Although it can als be translated as "credit management", the connection with "billing" clearly puts this in the area of A/R. While invoices with due dates are a form of credit, real credit lines or loans are more usually handled by a "Kreditabteilung". Except in banks, "Debitoren" are typically "trade debtors", persons or companies owing money on purchases.

credit control ?
Alison's suggestion may be a nice alternative, but I think it is wrong. Credit control is often carried out by staff assitants, who simply apply the rules that have been set and see that none of the customers overstep the limits set. Credit Management or Account Receivable Management is at a higher level.
