Are we neglecting on of our key departments? It is time we give our collections department a little respect. The key to financial success is growing loans. However, loan growth can be a liability if charge-offs and provisions skyrocket. You cannot afford to neglect your collections area! Sustain financial success by maintaining balance.
A successful Collections Department should:
- Identify Loan Opportunities through in-depth conversations and credit report analysis
- Detect “Doppler Radar” and how reaction times must improve
- Perform Resolution Collections – Avoiding ineffective “chasing the payment” scenarios that cost you money
- Assess risk properly from the onset – Avoiding a “one method fits all approach”. We cannot afford to collect an “A” paper loan the same as a “D” or “E” loan or a first-time borrower.
- Have proper collection note taking techniques – Knowing specifics on why the member is late, an updated value of any assets, changes to the credit score, debts, employment, and any specific risks associated with the loan
Customize a package to fit your credit union’s specific needs:
- Breakout Training Sessions discussing resolution strategies and in-depth credit report analysis
- Side-by-side interaction with members
- Retainer follow-up audits on collectors
- Assessing risk properly from the onset
