Collection Agency News
There are a number of sources for collection agency news. This news typically is not that interesting to most of our clients. It really is directed at collection agency management and credit managers who have hundreds or thousands of delinquent accounts.
The International Association of Commercial Collectors publishes a monthly newsletter called “Scope.” The website Collection Industry News provides a daily e-mail on collection agency news. Other collection agency e-mail newsletters are published by Collections Recon and Credit and Collection News.
Dean Kaplan and Jerry Kaplan have been frequent article contributors to the monthly publication Credit Today. Articles include “What Services You Should Demand From an outside Collection Agency”, “Principles of Calculating Bad Debt Reserves”, and “Proving Your Value to Management”. The Credit Today newsletter and website is one of the best resources for credit professionals.
Collection agency information is also available from Business Credit Magazine and Credit News.
