Dramatically Reduce Your Billing Costs

Posted in: News, Optimization

CTP Solutions, a recognized leader of electronic presentment and payment applications, discusses how their innovative electronic credit and collections solution is designed to help billers reduce the significant costs associated with delinquency and past due accounts.

The uniqueness of the solution is the timely presentment of collection and reminder notices, delivered as secure electronic documents directly into the customer’s inbox. CTP incorporates an instant, one-click payment link in the collection notice itself, providing a powerful direct payment channel.

CTP’s offer provides an efficient, cost-effective alternative that dramatically reduces the time and expense involved in collecting delinquent payments by replacing paper collection activity with rich, interactive electronic payment notices that are delivered directly to customers via email. These electronic collection notices are uniquely able to generate quick payment with just a single click, without the need to visit a single web page.

Jack Schachtel, CEO of CTP Solutions, describes the collections challenge facing billers and financial institutions, “Sending payment reminders by U.S. mail increases printing, postage costs and a long delivery cycle. By the time the customer gets the reminder it may be out of date, have already been paid, and not include current late charges. An uncollected invoice incurs additional expenses for the biller. These include printing and postage costs, longer lead time to collect, outsourced collection agency fees, payment negotiation discounts and significant contact center resources. As a result, the biller receives a smaller percentage of the original bill amount.”
