Our software as an individual solution


With our self-developed technology, all paths are open to you.

Access for contractors and customers

Overview of receivables and incoming payments

Via our access for contractual partners and customers, both sides receive an overview of the open and paid receivables at any time and can independently intervene in the ongoing collection process if necessary.
In addition, our contractual partners receive an insight into the entire communication history of their customers, including closed settlements, installment payments or the monitoring of titled claims.


Adaption to your processes

Our self-developed software makes it possible to implement individual requirements and map your needs in consultation with us.
This starts with extending our rest API to various functionalities in our software.

Dealing with your customers

Tonality and solution offers

In terms of your own account management, we coordinate with you how we deal with your customers.
This concerns, among other things, the address / tonality of our cover letters - also classified according to our own characteristics - as well as the framework conditions for installment payments, comparisons or limits for a possible title.

GDPR Compliant

We love data protection

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 put you in touch with our partner law firm if you need help in the area of IT, media and data protection law.
In addition, we are one of the few providers to use a German provider for our cloud hosting.


Handover of your debtor data

With us you have the option of transferring all customer data via encrypted interfaces or directly in our software via a csv import or via manual input.
In this way we enable the complete processing of your claims in a holistic view of your value chain.

Partner systems

Integration of further software solutions

We are constantly working on connecting other partner systems to our debt collection software, such as upstream invoicing or managing your own dunning run.
In this way we enable the complete processing of your claims in a holistic view of your value chain and take care of the best possible result.


Transparency is our motto


Out-of-court dunning procedure

In the out-of-court dunning procedure, we not only assert your claim, but also our collection costs from your customer. If your customer does not pay, you will incur fair and transparent manageable fees. We would be happy to explain these to you in detail in a personal meeting.

In addition, we offer our contractual partners the option of commissioning our affiliated law firm if our dunning procedure is unsuccessful.

As a further escalation level, this takes over the sending of legal payment requests. This allows you to remind your customers of the seriousness of the situation in order to avoid legal dunning proceedings.

Legal dunning

In the area of judicial dunning proceedings, you as a creditor must first pay in advance. This applies, for example, to court costs and foreclosures. However, these costs will be charged to your customers, so that if your claim is successfully settled, you will also get these costs back.
However, we will advise you in advance whether it makes sense at all from an economic point of view to seek legal dunning proceedings.
If this is subsequently sought and leads to a title to your claim, we expect an immediate settlement from your customer.
However, if the debtor is unable to settle the debt immediately due to a wide variety of circumstances, we take over long-term monitoring within the statutory 30-year period. By regularly checking your customer’s financial situation, we ensure that you can still get your money if it improves.
