Credit Reporting- Professional Collection Service reports to the three major national credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and Transunion. Accounts are electronically reported and updated monthly. There is no extra fee for this service if you choose to have your accounts reported.
Client Reports- Our Collection Software, Debt$Net, allows us to provide several reports to our clients. These include but are not limited to Acknowledgment Reports, Remittance Statements, Client Status Reports, and Recovery Reports. Our software also allows for special customized reports if needed.
Skiptracing- We use skiptracing resources to locate consumers when they can no longer be reached at the address or telephone numbers listed on the accounts. We use the National Change of Address database, National Directory Assistance and several web-based databases such as LexisNexis to locate skip consumers.
Dialer Technology- Professional Collection Service uses state of the art dialer technology which has the capability of making thousands of contacts per day. We have our own customized messaging. When consumers are contacted, they use a touch-tone telephone to be connected directly with our collector, or if our dialer reaches an answering machine, it will leave a message. This leaves our collectors free to communicate with more consumers.
Flexible Account Placement- Our clients can easily place their accounts for collection by a variety of methods, which ever they prefer. Accounts can be placed via disk, CD, or secure electronic file transfer through our website. They can also be mailed or faxed.
Legal Remedies- If approved by our clients, we will review accounts which have not been paid for further collection efforts through our legal process. We obtain information on consumer’s ability to pay according to their wages and assets. We have experienced Attorneys who handle our litigation. We pay the court cost and Attorney fees to file legal action on placed accounts.
