Collection Call Strategies

When a customer has an outstanding balance on their account, the most effective method to resolve the situation is to speak with them over the phone. By implementing the following strategies, you can create a confident and successful collection call.

  1. Avoid collection calls altogether by receiving payment before the customer leaves.
  2. Have a specific team member administer the collection process.
  3. Have records handy with the account details.
  4. Do not leave voice mails.
  5. Actively listen to the customer's complaints and let them acknowledge the debt.
  6. Make it easy for customers to pay you by taking credit card payments over the phone.
  7. Be empathetic.
  8. Get the customer to commit on a specific payment plan.

Regardless of how professionally you handle the call, customers might be upset, embarrassed, or frustrated. Remember your goal is not only to collect payment, but to acknowledge any complaints, rectify discrepancies, and to maintain or repair the relationship with your customer.
