Early Out/Pre-collect Services
CFM (Cash Flow Management), an affiliate of CCS, assists its clients in managing their current A/R (non-defaulted debt), normally those less than 120 days old. When it comes to aging accounts, credit managers are faced with the Question of Timing: "When should they stop working an account in-house and seek the help of an outside collection specialist?" With the increased responsibilities placed on credit managers, outsourcing has become quite a trend in the last decade, both from a time savings, as well as, a financial savings aspect.
CFM offers early out/pre-collect services on Non-Defaulted Debt. With CFM, credit managers avoid:
- the risk of placing an account too early and paying unnecessary commissions to a primary agency, and/or
- even worse, waiting too long to place accounts with a collection agency, making it impossible for even a specialist to recover.
CFM provides clients a choice of pre-collect services most conductive to their needs, including:
- a series of soft collection letters mailed to your consumer
- a series of soft collection calls made to your consumer by a certified collection specialist
CFM will professionally design, prepare, and mail pre-collection letters or make soft collection calls to your consumers making them aware of their debt and encouraging payment be made directly to your office, providing instant cash flow. Considering the personnel time you will save, the costs of preparing and mailing a letter in compliance with all collection laws, the effectiveness of a third party-letterhead, phone calls made by a certified collection specialists, and the good public image you will maintain, CFM should prove to answer the Question of Timing.
$ 141 Billion—That’s the amount of debt businesses report annually as a loss to the IRS because some consumers have not paid their bills.
