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. Flint Bishop use both to great effect.

We use data to make more intelligent decisions about the way in which we collect your debts. Our in-house team of analysts help us to gain a better understanding of your debtor behaviour and performance. Providing rich data insight to assist with collections forecasting and to help drive performance in order to increase your recoveries in the most cost-effective way. Helping to maximise the return of every pound spent with us on debt recovery.

By using predictive data models to analyse past performance, we can then 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.

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 business-to-business 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.”

What our clients say about us

We believe the best testimony of the service our debt recovery experts provide is from our clients, as they have first-hand experience of the way we work, our results and the overall professionalism of our firm.

Flint Bishop has set the bar this year. Phenomenal collections, first-class end-to-end service with supportive and knowledgeable staff. Their new in-house data analytics department has given great insight. They are now responsible for almost 40% of our yearly collections and I could not recommend Flint Bishop and their team highly enough.
