"CredAbility is extremely pleased with how MTI has helped us meet the increasing demand for our services” -Vicki Williams, Vice President of the Contact Center

Message Technologies, an industry-leading provider of speech IVR hosting, services, and solutions, announces an expansion of its existing partnership with CredAbility, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit credit counseling and education organizations. CredAbility originally started working with MTI for hosted IVR services in January 2008.

The initial IVR applications deployed for CredAbility provided automated, self-service functionality to assist CredAbility with providing disclosure requirements for their debtor education and bankruptcy programs.

This latest series of applications expands the reach and the use of IVR by CredAbility. These applications include:

  •     Outbound IVR campaigns to make potential clients in financial distress aware of the CredAbility services
  •     A telephone-based payment acceptance solution that facilitates payments and disbursements for CredAbility debt management services
  •     Reminder calls for counselor appointments, training programs, and debt management program payments
  •     Follow-up calls on required paperwork submissions for various programs
  •     Client satisfaction surveys

“With the recent economic downturn, CredAbility has seen a dramatic increase in the need for their services nationally.” says Darrell Knight, President of Message Technologies. “The use of automated phone self-service has proven to be a very efficient way to manage that growth within their contact center and drove CredAbility to look for additional opportunities to implement IVR solutions throughout the organization.”

“CredAbility is extremely pleased with how MTI has helped us meet the increasing demand for our services,” states Vicki Williams, Vice President of the Contact Center. “Consumers call our agency 24/7 for assistance with their financial problems. MTI has provided a reliable, state-of-the-art hosted IVR capability to help us contact people in financial distress to remind them about appointments, make them aware of our services and other important functions. As a result, our client representatives and counselors can better use their time to find solutions for people who need our help.”
