Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 20, 2005
Collections have become an increasingly important area for credit card issuers as the U.S. credit card market has matured. The industry faces a number of challenges including intense competition, increased indebtedness and insolvency, and regulatory pressures. Delinquency and defaults are the largest expense for issuers, and the area that offers the most promise for bottom line improvements.
Faced with these challenges, lenders need to find ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of collectors. This means processing more deliquent or charged-off acounts with available resources and collecting more in compliance with the regulations.
