Industries

ACCESS has the experience, expertise, technology and work plan to achieve and exceed the goals for clients across a wide spectrum of industries.  Our collectors are highly trained and intimately know their clients making them effective in their ability to break-down the balance for the customer.

Our goal is to create a win-win and preserve the potential for future business.

Government

Government sector opportunities require a myriad of requirements including substantial regulatory compliance. ACCESS is a Federal GSA contractor. We have contracts with numerous state, city and county governments throughout the US in collecting taxes, fines, workers compensation, student tuition debt and miscellaneous receivables. Our staff has extensive experience assimilating the Statement of Work (SOW) that defines expectations, delivery dates and requirements across all departments to ensure compliance.

General Commercial

Commercial clients require a busy savvy approach as today’s delinquent business can be tomorrow’s new customer. In a traditional commercial collection approach, the agency or creditor either collects the balance or litigates the debt within 90 days. Although this model once worked well, it doesn’t bode well for the ever-changing dynamics of the business to business space. Companies and agencies that develop a caring and consultative approach with their customers in good times and bad can anticipate problems in advance and prevent some catastrophic losses. ACCESS has proven that a less litigious and professional approach returns higher percentages while maintain the goodwill in the client-customer relationship.

Higher Education

ACCESS opened its doors with one higher education client that remains an ACCESS client today. Colleges & universities trust ACCESS as their business partner to manage their student receivables including Tuition & fees, Nursing loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Institutional loans, Parking violations, etc.

Our dedicated Higher Education representatives are experts and understand the nuances in collecting higher education accounts and breaking down the balance for the student.

Financial Literacy site:

ACCESS developed www.whycreditmatters.net, a website solely dedicated to educating consumers on fiduciary responsibility and the importance of maintaining a high credit rating.

Telecommunications

10 Biggest Myths About Telecom Collections

  1. All customers understand their telecommunications bill
  2. Customers always read and understand the contract they sign.
  3. The sale’s person never promises something they can’t deliver.
  4. All customers understand telephony and how to size their needs properly.
  5. Customers are never mean spirited when they are faced with the realities of their discontinued service.
  6. Collection agencies don’t need a special approach to handle telecom accounts. They’re just like every other bill.
  7. Collectors can be successful most of the time without contracts and invoices.
  8. Customers enjoy paying early termination fees.
  9. Customers always have receipts for returned equipment.
  10. The new phone vendor always takes care of everything.
  11. Companies don’t need to segment their commercial and residential accounts.

Clearly, these myths are exactly that, myths. ACCESS successfully represents telecommunication companies in the resolution of highly disputed debts arising from contract disputes. Whether the bill is for service usage, early termination fees, equipment and/or damage claims, ACCESS collection professionals can help the debtor to understand their liability by explaining the contract and negotiating successfully from a position of strength. This area of collection is one of the most challenging because talk times need to be higher, debtors need to vent, documentation is imperative and the delinquent customers are usually hostile.

Transportation/Logistics

Companies enter into a contract with a transportation/logistics company for their recurring shipping needs which results in multiple invoices, sometime upwards of hundreds of invoices.  This can make collecting their account difficult.  ACCESS collection representatives understand the dynamics of this type of receivable and are able to work through the multitude of invoices with each customer, assist them where credits should be applied, disputes on shipments and obtain payment from the customer.
