Our Mission

For twenty-five years, The Kaplan Group has had one simple mission:  get payment for every valid invoice our clients generate.  Our consistent collection effort either gets you paid or we determine that your customer is no longer operating.

Over our long history, we have brought together a highly skilled collection team, and have fine-tuned our collection techniques. We are different than many collection agencies because we do not use auto-dialers, script reading collectors, letter series, or overseas call centers.  Instead, we carefully analyze every claim so that we fully understand your delinquent customer and the reasons for the unpaid invoices.  With these insights in mind, a custom collection strategy is developed which is designed to give us the highest likelihood of payment.  This approach has led to our 85% success rate and is the reason why we can offer our clients competitive contingency rates.

Our collectors are well educated and highly qualified.  Many have earned college and post-graduate degrees and have worked as managers, consultants and executives in companies of all sizes and industries.  We put our expertise to work for you and then we get your money!

We have an in-house attorney who works the claims if our initial collection effort is unsuccessful, all for the same competitive contingency rate.  That’s right, we give you two full collection efforts for the price of one!

We solve over 97% of our successful cases without having to pursue litigation, but we are fully prepared if litigation is the only way to collect.  We have a large network of collection attorneys throughout the USA who also work on a contingency basis.  We never want to go to court, but if we must, with your written approval, we will manage the whole process for you.

The Kaplan Group is the commercial collection agency you can trust with all your commercial collection issues.  We have earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, and our satisfied customers have given us many 5 star ratings online.  Our claim submission process is quick and easy so give us a call or fill out our simple Get a Free Quote form and let’s get started collecting your money!

Call us today at (414) 448-6040 and we’ll start collecting your money tomorrow!

Collection Agency Tips for Milwaukee Businesses

When a customer goes delinquent, it is good idea to put a hold on future orders.  All too often, companies continue to ship products or provide services to customers who have previously paid on time even though their accounts are now overdue, hoping to maintain positive business relations.  The problem with this strategy is that by continuing to do business, your customer adds to the amount due, which puts your company at greater risk of losses if the customer continues its non-paying behavior.  By putting a hold on new orders, this puts increased pressure on the customer to bring their account current, especially if they are dependent on your company’s product or service for their business operations.  As soon as the customer pays what is owed, you can quickly remove the hold on orders and your relationship with the customer can return to normal.  If, on the other hand, the customer does not pay what is owed, the hold will clearly put you in a better position than if more product had been shipped and was not paid for.
