Collections

TCF’s Payment Remittance Team’s Primary objective is to service our client’s aged accounts as quickly as possible while maintaining a solid reputation on behalf of our clients to their customers. Our approach to “Collections” incorporates predictive dialing, loop collections and electronic messaging and/or our “Triangle of Success”. This blending ensures maximum coverage of the account from the time of placement until it is returned.




Our Secondary Collection level offer’s clients an additional level of opportunity in managing their receivables model by allowing our clients a check and balance for their primary agencies as well as their in-house collection strategies. TCF minimizes your cost with collection efforts where ever your debtor is located. We will generally attempt to collect through our own in-house efforts. If in-house collections are unsuccessful, the account will be sent to legal counsel/returned to client. The attorney will first attempt to collect amicably (without law suit). If legal action is warranted, you will be advised of the costs required to file a suit. No suit will be filed without your express prior approval.

TCF’s collection program consists of three automated and efficient components:

(1) In-house collection
(2) Attorney-amicable collections
(3) Attorney litigation collections.


TCF implements a strategy that is successful in recovering both low and high balance accounts. We have no problem accepting small balance portfolios. We provide all of our clients with the same processes and effort from our representatives. It is because of that we are able to work accounts with balances $100 or lower as well.
