FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Baltimore, Maryland
Access Receivables, a national debt collections firm based in Maryland, has been awarded a Bronze Stevie Award in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category and another Bronze Stevie Award for a video introducing that innovation.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Monday, June 18 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. More than 500 nominees and their guests attended. The presentations were broadcast live by the Business TalkRadio Network.

Access Receivables received its Stevies based on the firm’s “Nice People Collect More,” business strategy. Its “non-adversarial” approach to debt collection seeks to work with debts to help them understand the consequences of bad debt and work out an achievable payment program. Since the strategies implementation in November of 2011, “Nice People Collect More” has resulted in a 40% higher return than the firm’s previous collection methods.
More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. This year marks the 10th annual competition.
Founded in 1999, Access Receivables services several key markets as a third party debt collector. They do not purchase debt. They primarily service the educational, insurance, commercial debt, and telecommunications clients located in the U.S.
