Billing managers are in charge of a company’s collections operations, ensuring that proper payment is received on time. While they occasionally handle some of the collecting duties themselves, they primarily hire and direct a staff of collectors who will be charged with making sure the company’s clients pay their bills on time. They monitor the activities of this specialized staff, listening in on phone conversations between collectors and clients to ensure that such calls are handled in a professional manner. The billing manager may take charge of past-due accounts to work out specific payment plans. Both the manager and his/her staff typically rely on computer software to keep track of accounts.
