Posted by Emily Herrington on Nov 4, 2021 11:13:09 AM

At some point you may have asked yourself exactly what debt collection agencies do and how they work.

Debt Collection Reimagined: How Digital Preferences are Boosting Profits

Posted by Emily Herrington on Nov 1, 2021 1:34:59 PM

The paradigm of customer preferences has shifted in recent years. It should be no surprise that these digital preferences in other industries, such as online shopping, would eventually carry over into others. Using digital channels to collect debts is by no means a novel idea, but it has presented a challenge for many businesses to implement. However, with the passage of Regulation F and constantly emerging technologies, the debt collection sector is undergoing a digital shift in its operations. Research shows that customers prefer digital engagement, making payments with the tap of a button, and self-service options that can be handled when the timing is convenient instead of phone calls they don’t have time to answer. The great thing about incorporating more technology into debt collection practices is that it is a win-win for customers and collectors alike. It permits more efficient workflows and grants more flexibility in communication. Digital debt collection uses text, email, and other digital means such as chatbots and applications to send outgoing and receiving incoming communication from consumers.

The psychological, physical, and relationship effects from debt are detrimental. Many Americans believe that having debt is a necessary factor of life. Whether you are going to college or buying a home, having what some may call “good debt” can assist you in going further in those goals. On the other hand, medical or credit card debt has an adverse effect on your income through interest charges that can cause a chain reaction of borrowing and more debt, all while not having the same potential advantages as a business or student loan. What you may not know is the ways debt can negatively affect your life and how being debt-free can benefit you in non-financial aspects.

Posted by Emily Herrington on Mar 1, 2021 10:04:37 AM

Don’t expect anything to go “back to normal” post COVID, and what defines as “post” still remains to be seen. Some experts say that it may be 2022 before we can safely resume old activities in some semblance as they once were. The pandemic has left its mark, not only on our physical behaviors, but our financial ones as well. In these continuing uncertain times, debts rise, layoffs continue, and there is a consistent economic downturn for many businesses.
