Field attendances

A field attendance is where we engage with your customer, face-to-face, in an attempt to open a line of communication with them and ascertain exactly why they are not paying their account.

Our agents are all professionals, who discuss the matter with your customers in a calm and rational manner to resolve any issues your customer might have there and then.

In the event that our agents cannot resolve the matter at the door, they will attempt to get all of the pertinent contact details to pass on to our our internal collections to facilitate further discussions.

Type of field interviews

We can also attempt to obtain an offer of an ongoing repayment arrangement. Whether the customer makes a payment or not, we attempt to obtain or update their contact details including home phone, mobile phone, work phone, employer name and position or benefit type.
  • Detailed

    As per the standard field call with the addition of the completion of a detailed financial position questionnaire. (The questionnaire is an altered form of an examination hearing questionnaire). Our agent explains to the customer that it is in their best interests to answer the questions, as the information supplied allows your office to better assess their situation and determine an appropriate repayment arrangement.
