Delivering operational benefits within debt collection
Optimum levels of cash recovery for our clients whilst upholding an ethical and controlled approach is achieved through utilising a range of resources for debt collection. Our expertise will be utilised including data cleansing, tracing customers, traditional office based collections methods (phone, email, letter & text), field recovery services, recommendations as to whether litigation should be carried out. Any subsequent litigation activity is carried out through Mortimer Clarke Solicitors; a specialist debt recovery litigation law firm authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, which is also part of the Cabot Credit Management Group.
Maintaining our client’s level of customer satisfaction is key to the debt collection services we provide and core to our training programme. In order to ascertain levels of customer satisfaction we will carryout post debt collection customer surveys to gauge their point of view on whether they felt fairly treated, with a clear understanding of advice given, and if they were happy with the outcome from the call.
Our debt recovery services are delivered to clients using a fully compliant approach. As a business we ensure that we keep abreast of all proposed regulatory changes and adhere to all existing guidelines. Our Compliance Team will monitor any upcoming changes and handle all communications with governing bodies, third parties and customers where appropriate.
In addition to traditional debt collection services we assist many of our clients with services that improve other areas of their business including customer retention. Within this added service we not only collect the outstanding balances but also manage reconnections of services for customer accounts.
Improve customer satisfaction by outsourcing debt recovery
We are a leader in the provision of customer-centric collections services. Our Customer Account Agents are trained to assess affordability for every customer. This approach allows us to uncover whether they are already in financial difficulty and to prevent them from moving into further financial difficulty as a result of any arrangements in place with us. We also look to understand the background regarding customer indebtedness so that this can be taken into consideration for the appropriate treatment of the customer and realistic negotiations. Where customers are identified as being over-indebted, we will signpost them to free debt management advice services.
