Flexicommercial faced challenges with their debt collection software. It was slow, expensive, it had limited tools, poor auditability, and a lack of automation.
Flexi were looking for a new solution that could support their growth, improve their efficiency and bring best practice and automation to their business.
Implementation and Results

Since then they have gone from strength to strength. Outstanding debt has been reduced significantly and case numbers have fallen through the floor!

Key Benefits of 365 Collect
The ability for customers to self-serve and correct their accounts was an important feature. It provides a new level of convenience for Flexi’s customers.
The majority of SMS, emails, and letters have been automated. This has allowed for more efficient and effective communication with customers enabling Flexi’s employees to focus on the more difficult and less mundane tasks.
Task automation allowed cases to be flagged and reviewed at the right time, with automated notifications for failed payments and broken promises.
The ability to visualize data for their teams and for management to review data easily are valuable features that have driven efficiencies across the business.
