Small debt recovery

Small debt recovery is regularly considered one of the most challenging collection types in the debt industry. In cases where a small debt is owed, often cost of debt recovery will outweigh the value of the debt itself.

These smaller debt recoveries can prove troublesome for organisations, as frequently customers will be unaware of the monies owed. For example, they may have missed a communication regarding a final balance when moving house.

However, with recent research revealing that just 45% of UK households have a landline, compared to 84% having a mobile phone; perhaps one of the greatest challenges is ensuring that small debt recovery processes are optimised for an increasingly mobile population.

Introducing Mobile Collections

Working with our Professional Services team, you can create a communication strategy that enables your customers to self-cure their debt, in a mobile optimised framework.

As illustrated above, a collection strategy can be created which takes into account the age of the customer, debt and outstanding balance, to identify the preferred communication channel for each customer.
