To maximise credit control effectiveness it is vital to develop key negotiating & influencing skills in order to get prompter payments whilst maintaining customer loyalty. Prompter payment training can sometimes be the difference between payment in full and a debt write off.

In the midst of economic crisis, the need to communicate with difficult debtors is becoming more common in the marketplace. In order to achieve maximum debt recovery, an appropriate strategy outlining key processes and skills needs to be embedded. By developing existing collection skills employees will become more confident, assertive and motivated to obtain more win-win deals and quicker debt collection skills.
