No two businesses are exactly alike.
There are differences in specialty, customer type, and geographic targeting — to name a few. And while some businesses focus on serving customers in their immediate area, others sell nationwide.
Additionally, there can be internal differences as well, such as management structure and accounting systems.
The same is true when it comes to collection agencies.
If you’ve tried your best to recover lost revenue and it’s time to get some professional help, your ability to collect (and the amount you receive) has a lot to do with the agency you hire.
Choosing a Debt Collection Specialist
Some collection agencies focus on medical collections, while others focus on consumer or commercial collections.
And even within the field of commercial collections some agencies may have a specialty working with businesses in a particular niche or industry.
Experience matters when it comes to successfully collecting outstanding accounts receivables.
For example, some commercial collection agencies specialize in working with mid size to large companies. In these cases the number of outstanding accounts is typically much more than that of a small business. And balances also tend to be much larger as well. In these instances the collectors working the case are typically more skilled and thorough than those in consumer collections.
This translates to more research required prior to making the first phone call to the past due customer.
It can also entail the need for specialized tools, such as:
- background checks
- corporate structure
- and any other pertinent information
This requires skilled, patient, and professional commercial collectors.
So what does this mean to you?
Successful debt collection has everything to do with the company you hire.
Make sure you select a specialist who has some detailed information about your type of business AND who can demonstrate a track record of successful collections working with a company such as yours.
In the end commercial collectors must perform due diligence on each and every account.
After all, that’s why you’re turning to an outside agency in the first place, isn’t it?
