Segmentation and personalization
The debt collection process is not pleasant to the agent, nor the debtor. Therefore it is important to make it as less painful as possible. Key to this is segmentation. Not all debts and debtors are the same and debt recovery companies need to adopt a personalized approach according to the debt age, customer scoring and payment agreements.
It is important to choose the right channel mix for every segment. So for example, if a person has missed only the first payment, a reminder from the debt collectors by email or sms might be sufficient. However, if it´s already a recurrent issue, the debtor should be additionally contacted by other channels, such as the phone.
Additionally, debt collectors should be provided with different guiding scripts for different segments. A personalized approach to debt collection will highly increase the success chances and the amount of the recovered debt.
Unified up-to-date information on debtors
The financial situation of debtors is changing regularly. Therefore you need to guarantee updated information and provide your debt collectors with a unified desktop with a 360° view of the debtor. No one wants to be accused of being in debt if the debt has been settled, even if it has happened only a few days or even hours ago.
