The History

Like most suppliers, Drake Ready Mix is far from the top of the payment chain. General Manager Annie Drake knew that sending preliminary notices (known in Florida as a Notice to Owner or NTO) on almost all of their jobs was vital to protecting their lien rights and encouraging their customers to pay within a 30-day period. Although Annie worked with a national credit management association to send NTOs, she had to pick and choose which ones to send since the process was burdensome.

The Changes

When Annie started using Levelset’s lien rights management solution, she said it was a lightbulb moment because sending notices was no longer time-consuming. Annie was able to send more notices, house them in one place, and easily track them. Following this change, she noticed a positive shift in receivables as the company used Lien Rights Management to get customers’ attention early on.

Using Levelset is what took things to the next level. Before, we were sending a handful of notices a week. Now, we’re sending a handful a day.
