Maintaining a robust credit ecosystem requires high efficiency in debt collection, especially as digital lending models expand. However, one of the primary challenges faced by collections teams is continued engagement with borrowers after each call. Collections teams need to adopt a borrower-centric collections strategy by guiding late payers to use cost-effective digital self-service tools.

Borrowers may filter or reject persistent phone calls, so frequent nudges may not be well received and negatively affect their overall experience. Moreover, there has been a notable shift from aggressive tactics to a more empathetic approach, aligning with evolving consumer preferences, especially in digital communications.

Credgenics introduces the Post-Call Communications Strategy on Credgenics’ Dialer to tackle these challenges. This strategy enables teams to overcome engagement hurdles with automated soft digital nudges assisting the tele-calling efforts. Lenders can automate sending messages via selected digital channels and call dispositions as soon as a calling agent has connected with the borrower for repayment via dialers. This strategy ensures keeping the lines of communication open proactively.

Introducing Credgenics’ Post-Call Communication Strategy – A one of its kind feature for the collections industry

Credgenics’ Post-Call Communications Strategy is a game-changer for collections teams, offering a seamless and automated approach to post-call communications after calling a borrower. By mapping channels and templates based on post-call dispositions, the messages are sent to borrowers through lender-approved channels, including SMS, WhatsApp, IVR, Voice messages, and E-mail. 


The offering includes settings for all three modes of campaigns – Predictive dialer, Autodialer & Click2Call. Upon activation of this setting, every digital communication channel provided by Credgenics will be listed on the lender’s dashboard, and a corresponding approved template will be chosen from the template management system. These templates will be fetched based on the company’s preferences for post-call triggers corresponding to the selected disposition or call status.
