Benefits of SmartCollect121

With all capital expenditure under intense scrutiny, the system selection criteria now more than ever needs to focus on overall cost of ownership and return on investment to the business.

Software solution selection can be a torturous process. As well as the standard price/ feature comparison, the evaluation of numerous criteria such as technology platform, system architecture, service and support and even corporate vision has become an integral part of the selection process.

However, in this environment of escalating losses, priority must be placed on those areas that will count most. Four key collections system attributes have emerged as having the greatest impact on a company's bottom line.

  • Depth and breadth of system functionality
    1. Workflow capability, Early, Appropriate Intervention
    2. Making most out of Debt Collection Agents
    3. Ability leveraging organisational information, process and people strength
    4. Managing late collections, litigation and debt recovery
    5. Enhanced reporting and decision making
  • System ability to meet changing requirements
  • Faster Implementation of the solution
  • Total Cost of ownership
