Conversational Collections Powered by AI

Debt recovery isn’t as simple as collecting money owed. It requires customer autonomy for the best customer experience. No financial situation is the same, and negotiation is often necessary to recuperate unpaid balances.

SmartAction’s conversational AI uses natural language processing (NLP) to tell the customer who is collecting and how much is owed before accepting payment via credit card or ACH bank transfer. Our natural language understanding (NLU) engine is tailored with every interaction possible specific to debt recovery, allowing our virtual agents to handle each call in the same manner a live agent, while alleviating the negative feelings customers might experience with a human during an uncomfortable process.
