Increasing Collection Rates: The Power of Digital Channels
According to a study by McKinsey, customers who are contacted through their preferred digital channels are more likely to make payments during early delinquency, with a 12% higher likelihood compared to traditional channels. In the late delinquency stage, this likelihood further increases to 30%, while the proportion of customers paying in full doubles when contacted through digital channels. By connecting with customers digitally, financial institutions can significantly enhance collection rates and improve overall debt recovery. Eltropy’s digital solution enables seamless integration of text messaging, video calls, secure chat, co-browsing, screen sharing, and chatbot technology, empowering financial institutions to connect with customers anytime, anywhere, through their preferred digital channels.
Empathetic Messaging at Scale: Leveraging AI-Driven Conversational Analytics
Empathy plays a crucial role in effective debt collection communication. Issuers who use empathy in their communications with customers see increased engagement and more successful debt recovery. Eltropy’s digital solution incorporates conversational analytics, which provide valuable insights into the performance of different messaging strategies. By analyzing the effectiveness of various messages, financial institutions can identify the most impactful and empathetic communication approaches. These insights can then be scaled across the collection process, enabling institutions to optimize their communication practices and enhance customer engagement.

Sending our members these automated Text reminders at key times, such as the 60-day delinquency mark, has been game-changing.”
