Outsourcing can offer you faster, better solutions to maintain positive cash flow.

What are the benefits of outsourcing debt collections?

Lower operating costs

Debt recovery is a challenging industry. It’s an extremely time-consuming and detailed process. Depending on the work volume, a dedicated collections team is necessary. Building an internal team requires you to hire and train staff and ensure they have the tools needed to do their job properly. 

Outsourcing debt recovery services reduces running costs and helps recover more outstanding debts. Quickly and easily build a team of debt collection professionals at a fraction of the cost and not have to worry about staff management, IT support, payroll, HR, office space, hardware or communications infrastructure. 

Streamline processes

If your local team is spending a few hours on debt recovery, it may not be a scalable solution. As your company grows, so does the workload. Debt recovery is most successful when it is actioned early. If debts are left dormant or allowed to increase, it reduces the likelihood of a successful recovery.

Alternatively, a dedicated offshore collections team can focus on actively recovering debts – resulting in more successful outcomes and less outstanding debt.

Boost productivity and generate revenue

How can your business achieve its growth targets if your core staff spend their entire day collecting delinquent payments? The short answer: it can’t.

To achieve your goals, a dedicated team of collections experts can help increase incoming payments and maximize your ROI. Outsourcing debt collection functions allows your core team to focus on the more important business projects—such as finding new clients, making sales, improving your brand, and generating revenue and other higher-value functions.

What should you look for in an outsourcing provider?

Industry expertise

Outsourcing your debt collections, requires access to skilled professionals who proficiently speak your language, well-versed in collections laws and familiar with the latest tools, software, and processes for successful debt recovery. 

Not having the right people for the job can cost you a lot of money in unrecovered debt and customer loyalty. Your provider should thoroughly understand your requirements and offer the best collections and debt recovery solutions.

Excellent communication

What are your outsourcing expectations? Clearly discuss your requirements and expectations with potential outsourcing partners to ensure that you get the results you need. Reliable providers should provide the most effective tools for communication so you can stay connected with your team, get accurate reports and maximize productivity.

Enhanced security and compliance

Security must be a top priority when working in the debt recovery industry. Working with sensitive data requires enhanced physical and cybersecurity and, in many cases, keeping it secure is the law. Because of this, your business must ensure that your outsourcing partner can deliver the highest levels of physical and cybersecurity and make sure the staff are well versed in security procedures and policies.
