Prepare for the Coming Wave of Defaults

Resources for Collections Organizations

As more consumers miss payments on more financial products in the months ahead, collectors may find themselves in a blind race. Consumers entering delinquency on multiple loans may be contacted by multiple collectors at the same time. Collectors slow to reach these consumers run the risk of receiving only partial or no payment.

Four legacy challenges keep collectors from reaching consumers effectively and efficiently:

  • Calling on days or at times when consumers are unlikely to answer
  • Calls blocked or mislabeled as spam
  • Inaccurate or outdated contact information
  • Consumers doubting the legitimacy of calls from unrecognized numbers

Collectors that overcome these challenges will be more likely to connect with consumers first and arrange payment successfully. Now is the time to implement outbound communication strategies proven to reach consumers more effectively and efficiently, while ensuring contact records are continuously complete and accurate.
