Our Mission

Our company was founded in 1991 and strives to collect every dollar owed on viable invoices.  We are very selective about who works for us, and every collector has at least 10 years of collecting and negotiating experience.  Our President, Dean Kaplan, personally works on all very large claims and oversees every claim assigned to our firm.

Dean earned an MBA from one of the top 5 business schools in the USA and his career of 30+ years includes completing transactions totaling more than $500 million and traveling to over 40 countries.  Many of our collectors have held executive positions at companies of all sizes and in a variety of industries.  Many also hold advanced degrees including MBAs and JDs.

These experiences and qualifications enable us to understand why your customer hasn’t paid you and how to motivate your customer to pay what is owed.  We develop a custom collection strategy for every claim we work and we adjust our strategy to fit the situation as the collection effort proceeds.  It’s no wonder we boast an 85% success rate on viable large claims!

Dean’s advice about how to get invoices paid appears frequently in industry publications including The Debtor Collector, Credit Matters, Accounts Recovery and others, and he has presented at many conferences sponsored by Dun and Bradstreet, National Association of Credit Managers and Riemer Reporting.

See What Others Say About the Kaplan Group:



The Kaplan Group provided excellent and immediate assistance to our online and telephone inquiries during our process of information gathering and submitting our claim! TKG’s professionalism and expertise made us feel highly valued even though our office and the debt owed to us was small in comparison to some of their notable collection successes. Based on our first experience, we would highly recommend The Kaplan Group and plan to use them again should our office need collection services in the future.

Collection Agency Tips for Seattle Businesses

Having a personal guaranty can increase your chances of getting invoices paid because the guarantor will give those invoices a higher payment priority than invoices that are not guaranteed.  Anyone who is facing a possible business failure is motivated to try to minimize their own personal debts.  Because of this, so long as the business is generating revenue, personally guaranteed invoices will be the ones that are paid first.

Having a personal guaranty is even beneficial when your customer cannot pay right away because the guaranty will motivate the customer to talk to you or your collection agency over other vendors that don’t have the guaranty.  They want to avoid an immediate escalation of the non-payment and are more willing to give you time and information.  Frequently, the information they provide will enable you or your collection agency to make better, more informed decisions on how to move toward payment.
