The problem with traditional debt collection strategies

When we think of debt collection, we're likely to imagine human agents spending hours on end making one call after another. They deal with customers who are either disengaged or distressed. 

Call Center Agents bear the emotional brunt of these interactions. It’s rough, stressful, and marked by high turnover rates. 

And the pressure? It's always on.

On the flip side, being on the receiving end of these calls is not pleasant either. You're met with scripted dialogue, little room for a personalized chat, and you're probably already going through a tough time. The one-size-fits-all approach seldom takes into account your unique situation or offers the empathy needed to handle such delicate matters.

And it's not just about recovering debts. Agents also have to balance maintaining consumer trust with safeguarding brand integrity. These challenges can further amp up the turnover and inefficiencies in call centers. The sub-industry is crying out for an AI solution to automate tasks, boost call handling, and instill customer confidence for more empathetic debt resolution.

This is exactly how the CEO of Unifi, Joe Thompson, felt: "My mission is to shake up debt collections. I want to help people in debt feel better, be better off financially, and feel good about talking to someone or something about resolving their debt."
