Debt Recovery

As debt recovery is the component of credit management that is most often outsourced, it is usually our first point of engagement with many clients. When internal efforts to collect payment have failed, accounts are passed to us for action.

Fundamental to the Credit Consultants approach is a concept we call Rapid Resolution. The current economic climate has dictated the necessity for time being of the essence. The sooner we understand the reason for non-payment, the greater our chances of success. 

Methodology
The following are key components of Credit Consultants debt recovery capability:

  • Process
    One reason we achieve the results we do is the systematic way we work. A successful relationship is based on our knowledge of your business.

  • Skills
    The aptitude and expertise of our people is the second reason we are successful. Their ability to establish rapport with debtors and to work creatively with them to solve the problem can make all the difference to recovering your money, preserving your customer relationship and enhancing your brand.

  • Specialist resource - Tracing, Field Visits & Process Serving, Legal
    For the more challenging debt types, we draw on our wider resources: our specialists in tracing, our network of field agents and our external legal counsel in conjunction with our in-house staff. No matter where in New Zealand, Australia or further afield your debtor may be, we have the ability to trace them and take appropriate action.

  • Default loading
    Credit Consultants has electronic links with credit reporting agencies for daily loading and updating of defaults

  • Ability to charge the Debtor for costs relating to the debt
    As your terms and conditions allow it, our objective will be to ensure the customer pays the cost of collection, thus reducing the cost of debt recovery to you.
