How is AI used in debt collection?

Finance businesses and debt collection agencies use conversational AI to automate and improve the communication process with debtors. This includes automated calls where voice AI bots remind them about outstanding debts, address common queries, and guide debtors through dispute resolution and payment options. Powered by advanced natural language processing and machine learning, the AI collection agents can engage in intelligent conversations with debtors, ensuring a higher likelihood of successful debt recovery.

What is automated debt collection?

Automated debt collection refers to using technology to make the process of collecting past-due debts more efficient. This can involve tools like chatbots, interactive voice response systems (IVR), and text message services based on artificial intelligence. Automation with such tools can be implemented across the entire debt recovery lifecycle, helping debt collectors and agents work more productively by automating tasks such as contacting customers, collecting payment information, and managing their time and decisions.

How automation can improve debt collection?

Automation can improve the debt collection process in several ways. For example, it can facilitate prompt communications and omnichannel engagement with debtors that, in turn, increase the chance of responses. Automation also reduces manual and repetitive tasks for debt collection agents. This means agencies can handle more cases without using as many resources. Overall, automation with Conversational AI can lead to growth in debt recovery and better long-term revenue.

How AI is modernizing the collection process?

Modern customers expect immediate responses and highly personalised communication experiences from services. Conversational AI modernises the collection process by enabling real-time assistance to debtors’ inquiries and providing personalised communication. Additionally, automation helps mitigate risks related to compliance regulations. For example, the bot can be programmed to initiate interactions according to the schedule in line with local debt collection communication regulations.

How to build a debt collection bot?

In the initial stage, building a debt collection bot involves taking into account two main factors. First, defining clear objectives for the bot. What goals a debt collection bot should achieve? This can include tasks such as sending reminders, answering common debtor inquiries, and collecting payment information. Second, considering the regulations it must comply with. What are the communication regulations on federal and local levels are in place?

When that is defined, you need to hire a solution provider who can help you design conversational flows that guide interactions with debtors and integrate the bot with debt management systems. When selecting a provider, evaluate their technology stack, specifically their NLP capabilities and integration options. Unlike other providers, Tovie AI has its own ecosystem of AI tech tools for building bots, including its own advanced NLP core that allows for creating highly accurate bots and 30+ readily available integrations.

How can debt collection bots assist in achieving compliance with communication regulations?

Debt collection bots, driven by artificial intelligence, offer a transformative solution for debt collection agencies by automating processes and ensuring compliance with communication regulations. Manual procedures often fall short in the constantly changing landscape of UK regulatory standards, making automated compliance through bots crucial. These bots effectively manage call frequency, adhering to local regulations to prevent accidental breaches.

They deliver standardised, compliant messaging, eliminating the risk of human error and subjective interpretation. Designed for empathy-driven communication, bots convey compassion to debtors while maintaining debt recovery objectives, preventing ethical boundary violations.

Bots, adaptable and easily updated, keep debt agencies current with the latest regulatory changes, minimising the risk of compliance violations. They accurately document communications with debtors, providing crucial evidence in case of disputes or regulatory inquiries. Additionally, these bots generate comprehensive compliance reports detailing communication metrics for monitoring adherence to local regulations.

By streamlining compliance processes, minimising manual work, and reducing human error, bot automation ensures better customer relationships, increased efficiency, and reduced compliance-related issues for debt collection agencies. Adopting debt collection bots is rapidly becoming necessary for agencies striving to conduct operations fully compliant, showcasing their significant potential in transforming the debt collection process.

What are the benefits of debt collection automation?

Traditional debt collection measures, such as aggressive calls, door-to-door collections, and invoice reminders, have all failed. Debt collection software allows banks to automate their collection activities.


Here’s a list of benefits that automation for debt collection brings in:


1. Optimisation

The debt collection software eliminates the need to work on minor lead management tasks, preventing human agents from performing mundane tasks. This ensures operational automation and saves resource time.


2. Customer segmentation

Debt collection software empowers agents with a single view of a customer. It ensures automated segmentation of the customer base based on factors like delinquency, credit history, demographics, account age, etc. This categorisation helps collection agents approach different customers with the right tone of communication to deliver a personalised experience.


3. Progressive collection

Collection agents are loaded with debt collection tools that automate their dialling strategies and intelligently identify the best time to connect. Thus, the agents can target the customer using the correct method, which will help in incremental and speedy collection.


The debt collection automation process plays an important role and is already becoming an integral part of the default management process. Voice bots are not only more convenient but are also more cost-effective than a team of agents.


Debt collection bots also simplify customer interactions, making conversations more efficient and personalised. Using customer data from the CRM, bots provide answers to questions in real-time with no chatbot-to-human handoff.
