Our software

Technology

Thanks to our own technology, we are more powerful – contact us for business cases!

No off-the-shelf software

We do not use off-the-shelf software (SaaS), but our own solution, which has been developed for more than 15 years.
This means that our work processes are optimally tailored to us and our customers.

Multi-client capable

We can map complex company and/or brand structures with individual access rights if required. In addition, our projects allow you to map your own debtor groups, which makes it much easier for you to post our positions.

Transfer of receivables data

The transfer of claims data is really simple. These can be done intuitively via our claim form or via our innovative xls/csv import. In addition, it is also possible to transfer data automatically via our API.

GDPR Compliant

Data protection is our top priority: the entire handling of your data is based on the requirements of the GDPR and is regularly monitored by us. In addition, we are happy to refer you to our partner law firm if you need help with IT, media and data protection law, and we are one of the few providers to rely on a German provider as part of our cloud hosting.

Individuality

We coordinate individual solutions with you within the scope of our project management and offer you customised solutions that also integrate the commercial dunning process.

Own dunning strategies

Based on scientific findings and our own experience, we fine-tune our reminder strategy. This comprises up to 5 stages plus an optional demand for payment by a lawyer.

Real transparency

Costs

Out-of-court dunning procedure

We play fair & transparent

In the out-of-court dunning procedure, you assign the asserted collection costs to us in a manner customary in the market.

The asserted interest on arrears remains with you.

We charge a flat rate per case handed over, which – fairly and transparently – is based on the achieved success rate of your claims.

As a further escalation level, we provide the option and technical connection of sending requests for payment from lawyers.

Additional services can be booked individually and integrated into your dunning process.

With us there is no fixed term or membership – we convince with our performance.

Legal dunning

Cost-benefit ratio as top priority

We check in advance, without obligation, whether legal dunning proceedings make any sense at all from an economic point of view.

Should this be the case, we will try to obtain a title for you at the statutory fees, which can be enforced at any time.

If the debtor cannot pay the debt immediately due to various circumstances, we take over the monitoring at fair conditions.

We only instruct bailiffs when the scoring values of your debtor are correct.

Through regular, cost-effective reviews of your client’s financial circumstances, we check within the 30-year statutory period whether there is still a chance of recovery.
