To provide first-class service, APS relies on the following elements.
APS has always relied significantly on developing and growing its own employees. The internal pool of employees is supplemented by specific skill sets from the market by recruiting experienced experts from banks, advising companies, law firms, and other businesses.
The core recovery system that APS uses is Capone, a recovery software that has been significantly tailored to the specific uses of APS and has proven to be a great tool for managing, tracking, and optimizing collection strategies and processes. A high level of flexibility also enables full integration with the systems of our customers, leading to automatic and regular data exchanges.
Group know-how regarding the collection, standardization, and development of processes is a great basis for any debt recovery activity. On the other hand, many cases (or portfolios) require a special approach and out-of-the-box thinking.
To meet the needs of our customers and broaden the range of our services, we have in recent years introduced also services, such as Customer Care.
Our specialised corporate recovery teams have the experience to manage both secured and unsecured distressed debts. We can handle performing loans as well as non-performing loans of various ages. Our speciality is handling distressed debts with real estate collateral assets. In certain situations we use restructuring as a complementary tool that allows us to maximise benefits for all participants in the transaction.
Phone actions and dedicated campaigns: outgoing or inbound (hotlines) for:
A helpline is a tool for two-way communication with customers providing them, in a supportive manner, with the reliable and accurate information necessary to make a choice between products and helps them to make purchasing decisions. Additionally, helplines are a good method for obtaining information about customers and their preferences and expectations to better match the demands of potential purchasers.
Telesales and SMS campaigns provide valuable information about the effectiveness of marketing activities. More intensive helpline traffic may indicate that a message conveyed via various media has reached the right target group. Recording conversation themes and noting new FAQs, consultants build feedback bases for advertising messages.
Distressed debts are burdensome for individuals and their communities alike. We help debtors get out of debt by building and planning individual payment schedules and supporting them in this endeavour, so they can build lives debt free. We are determined to help debtors create individual payment schedules and provide assistance in order to avoid forced execution of their property.
You can use the telephone to actively seek customers who might be interested in your additional offers, that is engage in telesales. Our staff, trained in your products, initiate contact with a prospective customer for your company. During a professionally conducted conversation, they present the offer for a selected product/service. Surveys show that 70% of purchasers are more willing to buy the products and services of a company that actively contacts its customers.
The effectiveness of push marketing strategies broadly lies in intensifying communication with dealers and partners. With a database of a specific target group, segmented in relation to the prepared offer, an outsourced call centre can reach at least 2,000 companies per day with information about a promotion in its final stages. In such a situation, demand can increase by as much as 30%, and you can dispose of a specific product in stock. It is enough, jointly with an APS call centre, to properly plan campaigns and train consultants to attain the intended effect.
