Contrary to pervasive thought – having a bad debt collection agency working for you is good for business. Reputable agencies protect the image and the profits of the companies for whom they work.
Most companies facing the near impossible task of getting a client to make good on past due payment give up. And those late accounts eventually eat away at profit margins, hamper cash flow and business growth. The solution to this problem is to hire a bad debt collection agency that will work to regain lost revenue.
Most accounting departments consider bad debts an expense. Companies do everything they can do to reduce expenses, so it makes sense to take on a bad debt collection agency to reduce the expenses related to late and non-paying accounts.
In many cases, a collection agency doesn’t cost the company anything until they begin recouping money. When organizations hire an employee specifically to collect on bad debt, they lose money because that person has to be paid even if they don’t have success in collecting bad debt.
Another reason it’s beneficial to have a bad debt collection agency on your team is that they have the necessary training and technology to track down old debt and collect on it. They collect your money efficiently and fast, much faster than an in-house operation that will likely be understaffed, undertrained and lacking technological tools to succeed.
Collecting on old debt is challenging. Not only does it take skill to get these clients to make good on their debt, there are many consumer debt regulations that must be followed. The Fair Debt Collections and Protection Act protect consumers from practices that a few businesses in the industry committed, which hurt the image of the collections industry. Reputable agencies know the provisions of the act inside and out. They’re also licensed to practice in all 50 states and know the regulations pertaining to those states.
Many debt collection agencies have lawyers on staff. When an organization teams with a collection agency they’re gaining the added benefit of these lawyers, which gives them an added measure of assurance that any legal proceedings regarding their debt collection efforts will be few and far between.
Once organizations partner with a collection agency, they quickly see what they’ve been missing without them. What they thought were complete losses due to unpaid accounts turn into a reduction in expenses and a influx of money. And taking the collections burden off the company allows them to focus on tasks that will help grow the company.
