Americollect among the most innovative collection agencies
Manitowoc’s Americollect was ranked in the Top 10 Innovative Agencies by Collection advisor magazine.
The national magazine serves the debt collection industry with magazines, email editions and videos focused on technology, compliance and best practices. Organizations are nominated by readers, peers and industry activists who believe they are making an active decision to be forward looking and recognize the potential for improvement in the collections arena.
The innovation that earned Americollect its nomination is cell phone ownership. The process determines ownership and monitors specific attributes so the business knows when a number has been reassigned. This helps the company comply with TCPA regulations and prevent it from calling the wrong consumer, according to a statement.
Americollect partners with healthcare systems nationwide and operates two divisions: one serving as a hospital’s customer service team and the other as a healthcare collection agency. . The company’s debt collectors focus on “being ridiculously nice.”
