What Makes a Good Partner?
Being a good partner is more than being friendly and helpful. Actions actually ring much louder than words, so this is the true measure of a good partner.
First, you need to know they are responsive to changes. In the debt collection industry, many things can precipitate the need for you to change your letter templates. Not being sensitive to these needs could have a serious impact on your ability to meet compliance requirements and ensure quality. At PCI, our standard service level agreement on new letter templates is 48 to 72 hours and 24 to 48 hours on modifications to existing letters. Are you getting this kind of service?
Next, you need to know that your partner will go above and beyond whenever there’s a problem. Having full transparency into the letter workflows is part of this. The other part is knowing you have a dedicated contact that will respond to your concern quickly and resolve it before it becomes a bigger issue. In your business, you can’t afford to wait around.
Third, the right provider treats you like a partner. They become an extension of your business, understanding that the solutions they provide are a reflection of your company. Those providers that do it well prioritize quality and consistency. They continue to hone and refine their processes to ensure that all your needs are accounted for with best in class services.
Finally, your ideal partner will always make your in compliance with all laws. Staying in compliance requires that your vendor stays up to date and makes all the necessary changes to ensure you are protected.

As an example, after years of using several vendors to process their debt collection letters, Universal Fidelity President, Scott Hearn, was tired of poor customer service and responsiveness. He said, “At first the service from the previous vendors was good, but within the first year after implementation, we began to notice the service levels dropping.”
Scott made the switch to PCI in 2015, commenting, “PCI Group treats us like we are a new client even though we’ve been doing business with them for several years. The service started at a high level and has remained so.”
