The Challenge

This Cheshire-based insolvency practice have seen rapid expansion in the past 12 years and pride themselves on their ability to handle every client case differently, and consolidate debts owed into a manageable payment system; breaking it down to installments. Hanover charge a monthly fee for processing payments, however found themselves running into difficulty with an increasing case of arrears. They took the payments as Direct Debit which is flat, and thus gives the client only one chance to make a payment.

Hanover Insolvency previously had no dashboard where they could access and view who had made payments, and team members were required to ring up clients, which is not ideal in the sensitive case of debts. This was causing suboptimal revenue turnover and unnecessary delegation of resources spent chasing up missing payments. Hanover was in need of a payments partner who were able to provide a seamless subscription service, and offer bespoke reporting and analytic features.

The Solution

In response to the problem, Total Processing were able to create a bespoke CRM system for Hanover. This system is extremely effective in ensuring all payments are taken, due to a set scheduler that runs at a specific time of the month, with initial unsuccessful payments automatically queued to be tried again with a rebiller later in the day.

Hanover also had access to Pay by Link, and IVR automated phone line triggered at 9:15 every day, much preferred by customers due to complete automation. The custom dashboard provided data for total revenue each month, broken down into collection, re-biller, client online, IVR automated, scheduled, and expected future payments.

Having Total Processing introduced to our business was a huge turning point for the company. Nothing fazes them, ask for something to be added to the system.... if it's possible consider it done!
