Effect of CCI on TRMA members

CCI’s capabilities will assist TRMA voting members in optimizing active first party credit and collection call center functions right though their respective credit cycles to our industry leading late stage collection program, RADAR.  CCI improves and continually optimizes overall performance levels and executes rapid speed-to-market campaigns for ad hoc projects via our CCI created analytical engine, Triumph. Like the many regulated and deregulated utility companies leveraging CCI’s different services, TRMA members will now see a different set of processes and products to increase and continually optimize their short-term and long-term collection effectiveness.

Cope added, “TRMA members have always been uniquely tested to continually optimize collections while expanding customer service expectations. More recently, this challenge has been intensified by a changing regulatory environment, tightening budgets, and the constant demand of even greater customer service. Contract Callers has worked with corporations of all sizes to succeed quickly in ever changing environments. We are excited to share what we’ve accomplished with our existing relationships and learn about how we can do even more.”
