What Can Score Appending Do for Your Collections Process?

Debt collection usually requires that you have a pretty significant amount of information on people. It’s unlikely you’re going to be able to collect a debt using just a phone number. You’re going to need physical addresses, and you may need important information like a person’s workplace, previous addresses and certain legal files. If you only have a small amount of information, here’s how you can expand that information using score appending (also known as batch appending) through Enformion.

Keeping Your Records Up-to-Date

No matter what type of records you’re keeping, they’ll eventually go out of date. No one keeps the same phone number or address their whole life, and some people even change important information like their names. You have to be able to keep your records up-to-date so you can get in touch with your debtors. That’s where Enformion’s score append capabilities can help.

  • With an automated system, you can create a set of requirements and append your data quickly and easily.
  • You may need to append a variety of different records, and automation will do it all at once.
  • Enformion’s batch appends can comb through its records and make sure it weeds out any deceased individuals, bankruptcy records and more.

Making Sure You Use the Most Information Possible

Score appends with a large aggregator like Enformion allows you to improve and fill out your data. If you use an information amasser that only pulls from a few other sources, you may not be able to enrich your existing data. You’re just communicating with a few individuals to pool your resources. The massive number of records at Enformion makes it simple for businesses looking for the best results.

  • When you have access to high-quality records that cover huge swaths of people, you can be confident in the quality of batch appends.
  • The right automated system can help you perform batch appends for just a few people, or thousands.
  • Enformion relies on literally billions of records from over 6,000 sources, covering almost every adult in the United States.

Stretching Your Records Into the Past

You may not have thought about it before now, but it’s actually really important to be able to take your current records and stretch them into the past. Knowing more about where an individual came from and what kind of trends that person has on their record can actually give you more information for your collections process.

  • Understanding more about your customers is key if you’re trying to learn more about how to perform collections now and in the future.
  • Past information will give you knowledge about potential future trends, making it easier to handle different individuals.
  • When you go through your Enformion results, it’s easy to add information to your permanent file on the individual so you’ll have the information now moving forward.

Discovering Trends in Your Business

If you’re a third-party collections agency, you may have contracts with different companies that send you collections jobs on a recurring basis. Learning more about how those companies collect information can really help you in the future. You can use Enformion to build a profile not just on each individual, but on the companies that send you information.

  • Different companies use different systems, which means some companies may routinely offer you different types of information.
  • You might learn that debtors from one specific company tend to change their phone number and store that information for future dealings with that company.
  • With Enformion’s score append capabilities, it becomes even easier to understand these general trends.

Relying Only on Top-Tier Information

Cleaning up your data ahead of time can cut down on the amount of time it takes you to process your collections requests. However, if you use low-quality information, you may end up spending more time because you have to correct mistakes your batch processing software made. Instead of dealing with a low-quality source of information, lean on Enformion for the best information available.

  • Every company needs quality information, whether you’re dealing with collections for your own company or taking collections from other companies and collecting on them yourself.
  • All companies, small or large, should be able to access the information they need to do their jobs.
  • With Enformion, you get high-quality information and a simple, easy-to-use design that will deliver on your needs.
