Collections Processes – A journey through time

Collections Processes Collections has been around for a very long time.  Longer even than money itself. It started off as a verbal promise to pay a debt, and later on that debt was recorded on paper. It subsequently evolved to being a data entry on a computer. Today, that data has evolved to a level where it’s used to predict: when a debt will be settled, when is the best time to call someone, when it will become past-due or a delinquent account. Technology has helped with this huge evolution […]
