Debt Collection and ARM Events & Conferences




August 21

insideOperations: Call Monitoring webinar
Call monitoring doesn’t just ensure that your collectors are saying the right things — e.g., the Mini-Miranda or recording disclosures — at the right time. It also can be a useful tool to help de-escalate a call that is becoming argumentative rather than productive. Call monitoring is also incredibly useful in training new collectors, as well as maintaining a high level of compliance among your existing collectors. Learn more.

Delivering Proven Speech Analytics For Collections
Genesys webinar
The most important resource in your contact center is your agents; they are also your most expensive! Agents who forget to state the mini-Miranda or say that the calls they handle are being recorded increase your organizations exposure to compliance litigation. Using speech analytics as a compliance tool also drives agent productivity and collections performance as well. Ensuring that agents are always asking for a payment in full or that they are offering the highest settlement amount to debtors before lower ones will help drive collections and improve your contact center profitability. Join us on September 4th to learn how speech analytics for collections helps combat these issues, as well as drive better, more predictable agent workflows and increase collections.

insideCompliance: TCPA Clarity and Questions webinar
Recent TCPA litigation has raised numerous questions about how – and if – the FCC’s 2008 declaratory ruling works in the real world. Instead of complaining about how court rulings could lead to the “erosion” of the TCPA provisions put forth in the FCC’s 2008 declaratory ruling, collectors need to be able to look at precedent, apply it to their current call policies and procedures, and make sure that third party service providers are doing the same. Learn how the courts have clarified some TCPA requirements for debt collectors in our 60-minute webinar with John Rossman and Dusty Whitesell.

This includes further elaboration on the latest observations regarding TCPA’s take on “consent” and “capacity” and the key aspects/pitfalls of CFPB preparedness.

Because of the importance of their role cohesion, this one-of-a-kind event will bring senior compliance, operations and training officers together and allow them to learn from each other, discuss pitfalls and identify areas of improvement. Also, because there will be no exhibit hall, ARM-U is a unique opportunity to have a conversation – not a sales pitch – with industry vendors about your compliance and operational needs. More info.
