Here is what credit unions who partner with Credit Control can expect:
• Technology – Credit Control utilizes CallMiner which records 100% of calls made by call center agents. The call system monitors collection calls and tags calls for being in or out of compliance; identifies high-risk associated with any aspect of compliance; discovers the behaviors of top performing collectors; provides direct feedback to supervisors and collectors; and alert analysts to an escalating call in real-time.
• Compliance - Credit Control employs an internal audit team who is responsible for auditing the Operations and Client Services departments. This department reports directly to the Chief Compliance Officer, a certified MAP attorney, ensuring that completely objective, unbiased, auditing takes place. Audits are conducted daily and a weekly summary is provided to department heads and the CEO. Areas in need of improvement are required to put corrective action in place within 48 hours of notification.
• Financial Stability - With sound financial management and a strong balance sheet, Credit Control has grown by an average of 25% each year for the last six years. Many of their competitors continue to struggle during this challenging economy and some suddenly go out of business leaving their clients without a debt recovery solution, yet Credit Control continues to thrive. Their audited financial statements and SOC1/SSAE16 certification provide peace of mind for their clients, assuring the security of their collected funds.
• Preferential Pricing - Recognizing that every credit union is focused on cost savings and revenue growth, Credit Control offers very competitive pricing for our programs.
• Implementation Process - Their implementation process is structured to avoid any additional burdens or costs to credit unions and their internal teams. They have built a strong team who possess a wide variety of experience in the collection industry ensuring integration, increased efficiency, and great collection results.
