Why Collections are More Successful with Debt Collection Call Center Software

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Jun 5, 2018 7:30:00 AM

Would you be surprised to know that some collections call centers are still working with paper files and 3”x5” index cards? In fact, some small collections agencies are still operating with little more than OEM software that came with the desktops – that are still running on Windows 7. They’ve cobbled together apps and workaround that work, but might not work together, resulting in extra steps to make sure everyone is on the same page regarding a collection. The big problem is that none of these approaches specifically address the needs of a modern call-center that needs to reach out repeatedly, often through multiple channels, to contact clients and maintain a file of their interactions, recording calls, and keeping track of transactions. When a call center brings in debt collection call center software, the focus is taken off the agent and correctly retargeted to the client.

It is up to the good actors in the industry to shine a light on the bad actors, and in some way make the public understand that not all outbound callers are scam artists. The news media makes little differentiation between legitimate calling operations and fraudsters, making it necessary for call centers to refresh their memories on the basics of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and outbound call compliance. All new call centers should have an orientation to bring everyone up to speed on this legislation.
