Re: Anyone doing collection analysis using Millennium?
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
You'll want to dedicate some time to learning the ropes in Millennium
Statistics. The SCAT table in a very important tool in collection
analysis. For department specific targeting, you'll have to work with
subject specialists to define a comprehensive set of LC ranges. As
well, take a look at Web Management Reports - there are several reports
you can run including an Age of Collection report, which I believe is
also based on the SCAT table (its been a while since I looked at ours).
One word of warning - Mill Stats is a tricky module. Other than that,
depending on how your fund structure is set up, you can derive a lot of
information by using fund codes in your seaerch strategies. Hope this
