The Accounts Receivable Network (TARN) Launches: New Web Community for Accounts Receivable Professionals

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - The Accounts Receivable Network, the first single-source Web community for accounts receivable professionals, launched today at www.thearnetwork.com.

The Accounts Receivable Network integrates into one location the tools, solutions, strategies and vital information accounts receivable managers need to execute their day-to-day responsibilities. "When you look at the critical and complex roles accounts receivable professionals play in an organization, you understand clearly how vital these professionals are to their companies' financial success," said Rob Rogers, Vice President and Managing Editor of TARN.

"In the past, accounts receivable professionals had to depend on journals, Web searching and friends to keep up with the latest trends and tools in the business. Now they have the single source they have been looking for -- The Accounts Receivable Network," adds Rogers.

The Accounts Receivable Network was developed to serve the everyday needs of more than 200,000 accounts receivable professionals across the U.S. Members of The AR Network will have access to information and tools that will improve operations, increase controls, and help them make better, more informed decisions in less time. Information and topics on the site include AR policies, flowcharts, forms, templates, discussion forums, metrics, best practices, benchmarking, staffing tools, fraud, technology evaluations and news.

By integrating The Accounts Receivable Network into available resources, members will have a comprehensive menu of time saving tools that will add great value to their operations. Everyday, AR deals with hundreds and sometimes thousands of transactions, customers, and requests, and when accounts receivable teams can be smarter in their work, the company wins.

The content for TARN was designed with the input of more than 375 accounts receivable professionals and an advisory board of leading professionals.

The Accounts Receivable Network is offering Charter Memberships through May 31, 2008 at $695, a $200 savings off the annual membership dues of $895. For more information or to join, log on to www.thearnetwork.com or call 866-827-6389.
