Payments and Collections Challenges We Address

In an average year, 35 million Americans move. Over 3 million change marital status. Over 50,000 applicants file for a name change. Keeping up with all of this seems like an impossible exercise, especially with manual tools. But if you don’t? Inaccurate, incomplete or old data can impede your collections progress. And maybe even result in compliance violations. 

We can help. Our industry-leading data on individuals and businesses, cross-referenced with our LexID® proprietary linking technology, delivers the current, complete insight you need to guide your collections efforts. 
  • Improve skip tracing and contact activities with faster access to phone numbers, addresses, emails, employers, relatives, associates and more. 
  • Solve challenges associated with aged debts, where 60% of debtor identities on record tend to be inaccurate. Our automated tools continue to monitor difficult to locate individuals, staying attuned to new addresses, phone numbers and other actions that change the public record.

$600 billion: That’s the estimated gap between tax liabilities and payments across government agencies in the U.S. Other unpaid debts such as public utility bills, parking tickets and speeding violations continue to rise. Realistically, with double-digit unemployment rates and thousands of commercial bankruptcies in 2020, millions of Americans may simply be unable to pay off debts anytime soon, if ever. To navigate this new reality, you need to properly prioritize your collections efforts.

Our Government Collections solutions help you access up-to-date, comprehensive information that can fuel better debt assessment and collection strategies. Details like:

  • bankruptcy, incarceration
  • whereabouts (living/deceased; military)
  • contact details
  • contact risk
  • and more.

Go beyond credit reports to better understand and segment accounts. Rank-order accounts and allocate resources based on ability and likelihood of payment, urgency, most viable collection method, and more. Not only that, gain clarity on whether to lean on third party collections to better optimize your internal resources. Our portfolio management capabilities help you get the best out of your collections contractors by having them focus on the segments that make the biggest difference to your agency and elected officials.
