Successful Accounts Receivable Clerks will also have familiarity with a wide range of computer software applications including word processing and spreadsheet programs, prepackaged accounting software and accounts receivable tracking software. In addition, strong communications skills are a must as it will be necessary to contact customers regularly to inquire about payment.
