What is debt collection?
Business practice shows that it often happens that payments for the supply of goods and services are made deferred. Often paid within a month. In certain cases, however, payments are not repaid within the agreed time, and when the delay is prolonged or if you are waiting several customers, this can significantly jeopardize the company’s liquidity. There are several solutions for these problems:
- One of the possibilities is to create a department in your company that deals with overdue debts. Unfortunately, this is unaffordable for most small and medium-sized companies, as in order to do so effectively, investments must be made not only in on-the-job training, but also in infrastructure such as specialized software, a call centre and others.
- Another solution is to use an external company that specializes in debt collection. In this case, you will be able to rely on а professionally trained staff capable of negotiating and experienced in communicating with debtors.
- There is also an option which combines both where receivables can be initially processed in an internal department and then transferred to an external contractor. This is a solution that larger companies often choose in order to keep their more important customers for internal processing, and assign the rest to a specialized company.
