Vision for Debt Recovery

Debt Recovery Performance Management Tool

If your remit covers billing, recovery or corporate debt in your Local Authority you’re ability to drive high collection rates whilst optimising recovery methods in a way that reduces resource and minimises disputes will determine your success in the role.

The good news is that you’re not on your own. Today’s Councils leading the charge on this are embracing technology using Destin’s powerful reporting and analytics tool ‘VISION’ to help with debt recovery. VISION pulls data through from multiple systems including Council Tax, Housing Benefits, Business Rates, Sundry Debt and more to provide you with a powerful, singular view of debt across your authority.

Using VISION you can better meet targets and forecasts by pinpointing at an individual and business level who owes most, helping you prioritise your recovery action and assign staff workload. Using any number of different search parameters, typical reports you can run include accounts where a different approach to recovery can lead to an earlier collection of outstanding debt.

VISION also enables you to profile debt by age of debtor, enabling you to vary your collection approach dependent on the demographics of the debtor, helping lead to a more successful and less stressful recovery approach for all parties.
