READY TO COLLECT YOUR MONEY?
We are a quality control/inspection company. We deal with emergencies and so don’t always get the PO number and documentation from our customers that we should. When the emergency is over, some companies don’t want to pay. Our company has used the Kaplan Group about 5 times over the past 2 years. The amount of money we were trying to collect ranged from about $1,500 to $60,000. The Kaplan Group was efficient and organized. They were able to get payments from companies that consistently ignored all of our communications. From my dealings with them, they seem honest. I recommend them.

Collection Agency Tips for Houston Businesses
When faced with a delinquent customer, try to avoid entering into a payment plan agreement with the customer. Of course, not every customer will be able to pay for a large order in one single payment, but every company should strive to collect payments in full whenever possible. When you enter into a payment plan with a customer, it can be seen as a signal that the company is willing to accept late payments or payments being stretched out over a long time period. This can lead to a lower return on sales and put downward pressure on the company’s profitability. In addition, valuable company resources must be used to manage the payment plan and make sure the customer stays on track with the terms of the repayment. Whenever possible, avoid payment plans unless there is no other option available. When implementing a payment plan, try to standardize the structure across customers to make the management task as efficient as possible.
