Debt Recovery Plus was established in February 2009 and offers industry leading collection rates across all business sectors. They are one of the leading providers of debt recovery services to the private parking sector in the UK.

The Requirement

Debt Recovery Plus required a 24-hour IVR payment service and website-based payment portal to provide their customers with a quick and easy way to make payments across multiple channels. This enabled DRP to free up the time and resources to focus on their core business activities.

DRP required the services to update their in-house systems in real time and perform a look up against customer reference details, offering tailor-made payment arrangements and validate the legitimacy of accounts if required.

The Solution

Key IVR designed and built an IVR system, which was able to look up references from their systems to return account balance information and check the validity of an account number. It was designed to validate card numbers and card type, then automatically apply the correct surcharge based on card the data provided.

Processed payments are posted using the web service into the DRP systems in real time. Their web payments portal allows their customers to make payments using desktop or mobile devices. Key IVR retain detailed logs of the visits to the site and the stage reached in the payment process allowing DRP to monitor fraudulent payment attempts.

The Outcome

“We have now worked with Key IVR for over 3 years, over this time or needs have grown, they have always managed to accommodate our requests, and have made good effort to understand our business

Key IVR provide excellent reporting on a daily basis, detailing not only the payments received, but also at what stage a payment may have failed. This is very useful for identifying any problems, or whether the service needs to be streamlined. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for this kind of service.”
