Free ITC Listing

In the event we are unable to recover debt, the debtor is listed on a national credit bureau at no cost to the client.

The debtor would have to settle his debt with us before he is removed from the national credit bureau.

In the event of bigger outstanding amounts, should our client wish to proceed with legal action, our attorneys will gladly add legal assistance at very competitive rates.

Cost Advantages

The average debt collection commission rate in South Africa ranges from 20 to 50% depending on the number of days the account is outstanding.

Employing technology effectively allows us to minimize our overheads which in turn positions us to offer our clients a commission rate of just 17%.

Based on volumes, we are willing to negotiate even lower rates.

In partnership with a leading South African telecommunications company, we’ve turned the old-fashioned outbound call centre into an inbound call centre by means of a product called Robocall.

Debtors whom we have not been able to make positive contact with are passed from our system to Robocall. Robocall automatically dials the contact numbers of each debtor.

When a call is connected, Robocall forwards the call to our call centre. The first available agent retrieves the call and negotiates a payment arrangement.
