Encore Capital Group is a leading provider of debt management and recovery solutions for consumers. They partner with individuals as they repay their obligations and move toward financial recovery. Encore’s success and future growth are driven by its widespread use of analytics, investments in data and behavioral science and their commitment to conducting business ethically and in ways that support its consumers’ financial recovery. Encore employs more than 3,500 employees worldwide, located across multiple domestic and international sites.
Facing oversight by the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Encore was dealing with an ever-growing stack of paper records. Letters, faxes and phone records were handled by multiple employees creating an increasing backlog of paper records and process inefficiencies. Members of the Consumer Support Services department responsible for processing the communications found it difficult to quickly locate the proper paperwork and manage their processes while prioritizing how they assist their consumers.
“Encore Capital Group has helped more than two million people resolve a historical debt and start to rebuild their financial lives."
When looking to streamline their Consumer Support Services process, Encore evaluated numerous vendors in addition to an in-house solution. With much of their consumer communication being time sensitive, which if mishandled could result in penalties, risk mitigation and paper reduction became key drivers for improving their debt resolution process. Encore chose Iron Mountain to provide a customized solution to reduce their backlog, provide better consumer service and streamline their workflows saving them time, resources and money. The trust they put into this partnership was built on a foundation of having implemented a full suite of Iron Mountain information management solutions.
Encore focuses on three core tenets to make a positive impact on the debt
"It's nice to see that an industry leader like Iron Mountain truly embodies every sense of that and that’s why I really enjoy our partnership. I’ve found people at Iron Mountain are passionate and partner with us in every sense of the word. They helped us achieve our three core goals."
Kevin Jolly, Director of Consumer Support Services, Encore Capital Group
In just 90 days, Encore and Iron Mountain were able to implement an enterprise
solution for the Consumer Support Services Group, achieving key metrics and
business process improvements. By making information more readily available
where and when it’s needed, Encore streamlined their workflows, increased
efficiency and achieved a 25 percent reduction in operating cost. Now, having the
ability to out-task non-core activities such as imaging and indexing documents,
their staff have the time to focus on more complex cases, such as identity theft,
and can quickly resolve consumer debt repayment resolution disputes. “This has
led to a massive improvement in turn-around, taking about half the time that it
used to before Iron Mountain was brought in,” stated Kevin Jolly.
