See how Lexop helps financial services providers
While the financial landscape has changed drastically over the years — from checks to wire transferring, banking apps, and cryptocurrency payments — there is at least one area where financial services have fallen short of updating their processes.
The collection of past-due payments can get hijacked by unproductive operational practices and an ineffective repayment customer journey. Financial services can reduce Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) by adopting Lexop's collections software to sit on top of their current accounts receivable system.
Read on to learn how financial service companies have improved their debt recovery capabilities with digital collection tactics.
Focused on results
Our clients in the financial services industry have seen tremendous benefits with Lexop.
Most companies in the financial services industry have in-house collections departments as part of their risk management and loss reduction infrastructures. These offices are expectedly competent at collecting defaults on credit card debt, lines of credit, leases, auto loans, and other financial services lending products. These teams rely on compliant collections systems to manage their day-to-day operations for unpaid or delayed receivables, with many now leveraging a variety of traditional and digital debt recovery techniques.
Many lenders have failed to see a huge improvement in self-cure rates after implementing a digital collection tool. Most customers aren't taking action past checking the email — many would ignore its call to action — and only a few make it to the end of the journey and actually make a payment.
This inaction is expected in the financial services industry because past-due customers can't make payments directly from the reminder message. We've seen cases where customers must log in to their account and navigate through multiple menus and confusing interfaces, only to call customer service because it got too complicated.
Meanwhile, someone in the collections department is still required to perform manual tasks to reconcile the accounts because the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and collections systems aren't integrated.
Many financial lenders have turned to digital tools — whether built in-house or purchased from an external vendor — to enhance their collection processes. Implementing new tools must be done with considerable planning for compliance, privacy, and security to safeguard confidential consumer data. There must also be consideration of the cultural implications within the organization, requiring the buy-in of the executive leadership team and the collections professionals who will be using the tools regularly.
There must also be consideration given to the high costs associated with maintaining technology as payment and security standards are continuously improved. This can be expensive and time-consuming. At the same time, there's a need to scale capacity for collections processes to accommodate ongoing surges in the volume of past-due accounts. With the prevailing economic uncertainty, many lenders are preemptively optimizing their collections systems and processes to prepare for the looming 2023 recession.
While the goal of recouping debt as efficiently as possible hasn't changed, digitizing the collections process in a humane way will be at the forefront of financial services. With Leoxp's digital collections software, we’ve made it easy for lenders to prepare for the incoming collections surge while improving cash flow, reducing DSO, and improving customer satisfaction.
