Collection Platform “Must Haves”
Last week we covered how the value of a credit reporting system supporting a lending platform depends on the comprehensive nature and freshness of the credit information collected and shared, especially the interactive structure of the reporting system itself.
Today we are going to cover some key data and functionality components that should be required in every Auto Lending Collection Platform. Capturing and effectively leveraging these critical variables will help improve your bottom line revenue stream. The secret to an effective collection platform lies in the quality and depth of your collection metrics.
Collection Platform Content Checklist:
- Comprehensive history of financial transactions, payments, delinquency ratings, bankruptcy status, and credit bureau information
- Capability to systematically assign and route accounts for collection based on functionally defined work queues
- Dynamically refresh checklists, account statuses, and follow-up dates
- Systematically assign delinquency ratings using lookup tables and download to credit bureaus
- Multiple promise-to-pay dates and systematic capability to move into the collector’s queue if certain conditions are not achieved
- Flexible commentary capabilities including pull down actions and statuses, remarks, automatic time/date and user stamp
- Delinquency refresh capabilities including backdated postings
- Capture “referred-party” information, current, and prior vendor assignments
- Create bankruptcy sub-statuses (disposition codes) from which to track the process and build work queues
- Maintain repossession data, charge-offs, deficiencies

- Extensive reporting capabilities: collections, bankruptcy, repossession activity for variance information, repossession assignments by vendor
- Integrate follow-up activity for customers with multiple accounts in collection status
