New York, NY – LexisNexis® Risk & Information Analytics Group today announced the launch of a redesigned and enhanced version of its flagship product, Accurint® for Collections, a market leading online tool used by Collections businesses to efficiently and quickly locate and contact debtors to recover debt. The New Accurint for Collections web portal offers collections operations an enhanced interface with upgraded search capabilities and functionality designed to improve a collector's productivity.

"Our objective is to help the collections agent be more productive in their debtor locate and contact efforts and the New Accurint for Collections accomplishes this for our customers," said Robert Fite, vice president of Receivables Management Solutions for the LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group.

"Our collectors really like the look of the New Accurint for Collections. It is easier to use, which makes their jobs easier by allowing them to work their skip accounts more efficiently and more effectively," said Bob Burnside, director of Collections, First Financial Asset Management (FFAM), an accounts receivable management firm.

As part of the redesign process, LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group conducted extensive usability testing and customer outreach to implement significant enhancements, improved functionality and ease of use on Accurint for Collections. The results of this research include:

  • Streamlined navigation between searches
  • Faster linking to additional relevant data sources for locating debtors
  • Expanded online training and search tip functionality
  • Ability to store and revisit recent searches
  • Customizable tab creation for favorite searches types

Accurint for Collections is powered by proprietary linking technology designed to improve the collections process including tools to identify relatives and associates closest to the debtor, phone numbers unavailable in directory assistance, additional behind-the-scenes searches and phone feedback which allows the online users to directly input the relevance of telephone search results.
