Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
C2C Resources, a leader in business debt collection agency throughout the United States, announced today that they have released three reasons businesses should turn to professionals when collecting their past due debt from customers.
According to the “Collection Trends: Commercial Collection Agency Association of the Commercial Law League of America” survey conducted by the Commercial Collection Agency Association, the probability of full collection of a delinquent customer account drops significantly with the length of time. After 90 days, the probability of payment drops to 69.9 percent; after six months the probability of payment drops to 52.1 percent; and after one year the probability of payment drops to 22.8 percent.
“We advise companies that the best practice for going after a bad debt is 90 – 100 days,” explained Todd Tinkler, President of C2C Resources. “It is better to bring in an expert when you need it then wait until it is too late.”
C2C Resources believe that when a business faces a delinquent customer, they should outsource to a third-party expert for these three reasons:
1. The invoice becomes a priority
If a customer is stringing the company along with when they will pay, bringing in an expert can remind them that the company is serious about getting their assets back and maintaining their bottom line. When a third-party commercial debt collector approaches your customer, your invoice becomes a higher priority.
2. Protect cash flow
At the end of the day, hiring a business debt collector is about protecting the business’s cash flow so that the delinquent debt does not negatively impact the business’s ability to pay their suppliers, utilities and employees. If a payment is not received from a customer, even after they promise that the check is in the mail or will arrive next week, Tinkler suggests companies should take further action.
3. Expert knowledge
Unlike a staff member who may be completing the collection calling in addition to their regular job, third-party companies employ specialists who know the laws and know the best tactics to collect the debt. Throughout the collection process, C2C Resources will provide clear, up-to-date status reports in addition to 24/7 account access.
Tinkler realizes that debt collection is not the most positive topic in the business industry, but it is something that companies should not put off. “ We provide a variety of tools to help our clients collect the invoice on their own, but when your efforts are not effective, its important to go to a third-party specialist to protect your cash flow. It is not uncommon to go to a specialist when your car has problems, or you need a home repair; this is one in the same. Let us help repair a part of your business to maximize cash flow.”
