Using data analysis to drive recoveries

Some debt recovery firms rely on the skills and experience of their team, others adopt a more automated process based on data analysis. At Flint Bishop, we use both to great effect.

Our in-house team of analysts use data to gain a better understanding of your debtors’ behaviour and performance, empowering us to make more intelligent decisions about the way in which we collect your debts. By using predictive data models to analyse past performance, we can tailor our approach to future recoveries, often segmenting debt or customer types for separate recovery treatment, in order to optimise contact strategies and overall collection results.

Data-rich insights can also assist with collections forecasting to enhance performance and increase your recoveries in the most cost-effective way, helping you to maximise the return on every pound spent with us for debt recovery.

For clients with bulk debt portfolios, we can provide you with a deeper, more nuanced understanding of your debt performance through bespoke MI reporting packs, helping to identify any trends, assist with your financial forecasting, and drive improved ROI.

“For high-volume debt recovery work, Flint Bishop is a stand-out firm and one of the leading practices nationally.

“Recently, the team has increased its use of data analysis tools in order to provide its clients with tailored debt recovery processes.”

How we can help

Our team of legal experts can provide a complete debt recovery service.


We provide the complete debt recovery service from panel leading ‘DCA’ stage pre-legal bulk collections through to cost-effective litigation, all handled in-house by a Legal 500 ‘Top Tier’  law firm.


We combine the speed, systems, bulk handling capabilities and multi-touchpoint debtor communications that you would expect from a bulk debt collection agency with the legal expertise, power and professionalism of a leading law firm.


For any debts that remain uncollected following prelegal/DCA stage placement, the team can use their legal experience to review the cases and make an assessment
of the prospects of litigation success to recommend to you.
