Credit Bureau Reporting

Decision Makers

An option available with Collect! is the ability to report your debtor to the major credit bureaus.

Studies show credit reporting alters payment behavior. Many consumers indicate that they would be more likely to pay their financial obligations on time - even during economic distress - if those payments were fully reported to one or more national credit bureaus and consumer reporting agencies and impacted their credit scores.

Selecting this option is recommended in order to maximize the possibility of a successful collection. Reporting the delinquent debt to the credit bureaus is a serious act that should be considered with every account.

Once reported, the negative impact upon the debtor may affect them for up to seven years. The negative credit report may limit a debtor's ability to obtain credit, negatively impacts a debtor's credit history and may even limit debtor's ability to obtain employment. Often, if the initial contact of your letters, messages or phone calls does not get their attention, a debtor will contact you months or years later and want to clear the debt.

This feature is available as a purchasable option with all versions of Collect! and is included in the Enterprise edition.
