Debt Recovery

A Collection Strategy

A tailored collection strategy to meet your company’s needs.
Unlike some collection companies, Creditcom does not adhere to a rigid recovery formula. We realise that every debtors circumstances are different, just as every clients needs are different. When stronger action is required, Creditcom has the staff and procedures in place to maximise results.

A hands on approach, backed by state of the art technology, provides the most effective, results oriented service possible. We investigate, communicate and take all reasonable collection steps to achieve a positive result.

When to Use Our Services

All overdue accounts should be treated with the same degree of urgency whether overdue by 1 day or 90 days. Chasing payments is time consuming, requires valuable resources and can involve lengthy negotiations. Creditcom is the viable alternative: it is a proven fact that debtors respond more positively to a third party. Our proven methods of persistence and professionalism always ensure the best result. We fully collect on most accounts within 21 days or less.

Why Use Us

Professional Debt Recovery begins at the point where the company has exhausted all internal collection efforts but are still seeking resolution without recourse to legal action.

10 REASONS why Creditcom is a LOW RISK / HIGH RETURN Collection Service:

  1. Creditcom seeks to professionally collect monies that have fallen outside of trading terms. We aim to motivate debtors so that full payment is achieved within 21 days or less without the need for costly litigation.

  3. We adhere to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism, maintaining a strict code of ethics and businesslike collection procedures.
  4. Each collector handles a claim from the very first collection call to the final coordination of a lawsuit, providing a single point of contact and a consistency of approach and communication.
  5. Our competitive commission rates make it affordable to pursue smaller debts that may not warrant the expense of legal action.
  6. “The Power of the Third Party”. Contact from a professional third party can often motivate debtors to resolve payment issues immediately.
  7. Our aim is to preserve the relationship between creditor and debtor wherever possible. We operate with the confidence that our clients are getting the best possible results whilst keeping our clients reputation uppermost in our minds.
  8. We operate on a strict no collection – no fee basis, ensuring you are not exposed to any additional costs other than the agreed commission. We can effectively handle accounts of any size, in any stage of delinquency: from a few days to many months.

Collection Procedure

Provision of creditor and debtor details. Details may be submitted on-line, via fax, email or post.

New clients to sign a Creditcom Client Agreement. This is to ensure our authority to commence debt recovery procedures upon your behalf and confirm in writing the agreed commission.

Creditcom initiates full collection procedures. Our slogan: “we work hard to collect your money” We make every effort to establish direct telephone contact with the debtor and strive to resolve the debt amicably. A telephone contact from a third party can often exert enough pressure on the debtor to pay immediately.

That same day a Creditcom Authority Letter is dispatched to the debtor – informing them that the collection case is now within our care and that payment is required immediately. We advise that non payment may adversely effect their credit rating and could result in litigation.

Most accounts are fully resolved within 21 days. Our collection department ensures you are continually updated on the status of your accounts. You are immediately notified upon receipt of any monies. When it is proven that the debtor has genuine financial hardship, a repayment schedule will be proposed for your approval.
We look forward to working with you on your account/s.

Behind the Scenes

In the rare event that your debtor fails to pay within 21 days, upon authorisation the account is immediately dispatched to our affiliated solicitor and legal action is commenced on your behalf. We shall immediately report to you all information regarding associated litigation costs.
