“The Bucar Group offered a unique solution to our cash application problem. We were considering going off shore. The fact that they are located in the USA makes for a much smoother relationship. They handle our cash application function as if they were a part of PPG! They supply high caliber employees, they have low turnover rates and their costs are very competitive. It is most definitely a lower cost, high value service.”
–Thomas Doaty, Director of Credit, PPG Industries
“PPG Industries has been using the Bucar Group for over 10 years. They have proven to provide a professional service that is reliable and flexible enough to adapt to a variety of business needs. We initially asked the Bucar Group to provide assistance with Credit and Accounts Receivable functions. This low cost/high value service approach convinced us that we needed to expand this support across multiple business units. This has subsequently expanded to the cash application function. As I have moved to other functional responsibilities within PPG, I have brought this “good idea” with me. The Bucar Group provided an effective and efficient way for us to source and track sales leads as we focused on expanding our business with the government. We also used the Bucar Group to help us clean up old customer unauthorized deductions for my current business. In every case, we trusted the Bucar Group to provide professional service without the need to add headcount. I consider our customer relationship to be extremely important and we were confident that the Bucar Group would interact with our customers with the same standard of professionalism that we would expect from one of our own employees. The Bucar Group offers an adaptable and efficient business model that puts reliability and trust at the core.”

“The problem that we had at Chromalox was very inconsistent collection of receivables. Also, we were utilizing credit reporting services, but that was not working for us. Our DSO was 50 days which was strapping our cash flow. First, Bucar Group stepped in and took over the credit function and provides us great advice on potential customers. Next, they took over the day-to-day collection function, which allowed us to streamline our operation. Within a half year DSO was reduced to 30 days, which allows us to continually pay off debt. They also helped us limit our risk and make strategic credit decisions.”
