Learning and Development
Berlin-Wheeler combines the efforts of both Quality Assurance and Training through the Learning and Development Department. Our direct focus is on the overall customer experience and this begins with meaningful training and continues on with agent development.
Learning and Development
Our initial training program, along with continual agent development, ensures all processes and procedures are strictly followed. This is achieved through multiple platforms that are developed and maintained within the Learning and Development Department.
Agents receive multiple evaluations each month, along with constructive feedback. Side-by-sides are another tool used for real time guidance to foster good agent habits.
The Learning and Development Team stays aware of every day agent issues by taking numerous calls every week.
Multiple calibration sessions are held weekly that include all staff who complete audits. This practice solidifies consistent directives provided to our agents.
Although a large percentage of delinquent accounts may be resolved on a friendly basis through consistent, professional telephone contact, exceptions do exist.
After all other traditional collection programs have been exhausted, Berlin-Wheeler may recommend litigation as the next step to bad debt collection.
We research your customer's assets to determine if your customer has the ability to pay. This saves you time and unnecessary court costs.
Only with your written permission, will there be the pursuit of legal action. We will support you in your decision and help you through the process.
