What does it mean if days sales outstanding (DSO) increases?

Days sales outstanding (DSO) measures how many days it takes for a company to collect the cash from customers who paid on credit. The company should aim to have DSO be as low as possible. If DSO increases, it could be an indication that the company’s customers are having cash flow issues (and potentially going bankrupt!) and they can’t pay on time.
