Measuring Collection Department Results Challenging the Status Quo


Wyoming, MN May 19, 2015.      Most companies apply performance measurements to evaluate their success at reaching targets, as well as their effectiveness in achieving key business objectives. Credit union collection departments also look at performance indicators to measure recoveries, delinquency levels, and the number of charge offs.  CU Recovery, the leading collection resource for credit unions, observes that when collection departments concentrate on metrics and averages, overall performance can be diminished.

I’ve written on this topic twice before and didn’t think I would need to write about again. But as new collectors come into this industry, old lessons are not always passed on. So here’s the lesson.

It’s a little before 3:00am, very quiet. A tow truck is idling up backwards into a driveway intending to repossess a Ford truck. Suddenly the lights in the house come on and a man runs outside.
