Customer vulnerability identification and assistance
When it comes to identifying ‘vulnerable’ customers and managing debt, there’s no set criteria and instead there can be many reasons why businesses and customers may classify someone as vulnerable. Mental and physical well-being, illnesses, and personal circumstances such as unemployment can contribute to vulnerability. Therefore, we have a team of specialist experts who can identify and assist those customers that are vulnerable to get the help they need and re-engage with their creditors.
How do we identify vulnerable customers and how do we assist?
Customers get free support
We help businesses to understand more about their customers and know what actions can be taken next:
Throughout our processes we make sure customer records will be updated to allow our clients to decide the next course of action for the debt e.g., we may add a vulnerability marker, and this then clarifies the situation of the customers’ account.
