Extended Business Office / Early Out Service
Helvey & Associates responds to our client's need to decrease days in active accounts receivable and accelerate cash flow. Providing the staff and program, we become an extension of your business office in early stage receivable management. Because every client is unique, we provide solutions specific to your collection needs for successful results.
All contact with the responsible party is conducted in the client's name and notices and scripts are tailored exclusively for each client. Helvey & Associates answers all incoming calls from the responsible party, relieving the client's internal staff to focus on other important functions. We work closely with our clients, duplicating their philosophies and procedures and adhering to all client policies.
Helvey & Associates provides the expertise, experience, and staff to deliver a tailored solution that complements, or even totally replaces, your current active receivable collection efforts while you maintain full control over the process.
Our Pre-Collect is a unique outsourcing program designed to collect slow paying accounts without formally turning them over to a collection agency. Firm, yet friendly, contact is made in the client's name through a series of notices and telephone calls. Before the program begins, the client approves recommendations for frequency and timing of contacts as well as letter and message content. We become an extension of your staff, allowing us to do the work while you control the Pre-Collect process.
Training / Consulting
Based on years of focused experience, our Training and Consulting Services are designed to enhance your internal collections. We'll review your collection procedures including billing, follow-up, and aging of accounts, business forms, and staff training. We'll then make recommendations to improve your total receivable management efforts and boost profitability. Helvey & Associates will even train your staff to increase their confidence and effectiveness in collecting your accounts internally.
