ieDigital Interact debt collection software.
A more human and digital-first solution
to debt recovery.

Adopting a new approach to digital debt collection

Current economic and regulatory environments have presented increasing business challenges for the debt collection industry. Levels of customer debt are rising largely due to higher interest rates, which increase rates of default, and consequently the FCA is mandating that financial services companies take a less aggressive approach to their collection process.

The objective is to treat customers fairly and handle vulnerable customers with respect, propositions that require debt collection managers to adopt a new approach to debt recovery in an ever-increasing digital world.

Call center debt collection strategies are no longer enough. Customers prefer to conduct their financial affairs online, and open banking, empowered by Europe’s PSD2 regulation, promises a wealth of opportunities for new entrants in debt management software to disrupt the market. This calls for a broader channel collection strategy that places digital self-service as a central component to debt recovery, while retaining traditional elements of call and collect methodology.

Adopting a digital-first approach to debt collection is about embracing change and transformation. It’s an opportunity to compete in this new and exciting era of customer engagement, to offer non-confrontational debt management software services to customers, so they can manage their own debt in a more collaborative way. In turn, this will increase collection performance and improve the relationships you have with the people who most need help with their finances.

The transformational collection solution lies in meeting customer demand for digital, and here’s how our Interact digital engagement platform can help.
