Customer Loyalty and Retention Must Be Top of Mind!
Banks and credit providers need to adopt a new mindset for thinking beyond just collecting the payment. They should be asking themselves:
- Do we have segmentation and data analytics to better understand who is delinquent?
- What are my customers’ banking preferences, and what are their financial needs?
- Do we have technology channels our customers can leverage without requiring them to speak with an agent?
- It’s important to remember that not all customers are comfortable discussing their financial situation. They often feel embarrassed.
- Are my call center agents equipped to counsel and educate our customers? Can we build lasting relationships that increase retention and ensure our customers pay us before others?
- Do we have the ability to scale our collections process and teams to meet the increased demand of delinquent customers on the horizon?
