dsl have proved to be a vital service to our cashflow and credit control. Linda just gets on with it and flawlessly handles our invoicing and payment collection each month to ensure a smooth workflow for our business. I cannot recommend her high enough.
“DSL provides a fast, easy and comprehensive reporting service to enable us to make good decisions rapidly when asked to start credit terms with a customer.
They recently helped us avoid a potential problem: the temptation to provide credit facilities to ensure a large conference booking, could have led to us chasing the payment, as the record on research showed poor results and CCJs. We didn’t lose the business but were able to request and receive payment in advance.
The reports also enable us to demonstrate to our insurers that we are taking due care when allowing payment on account”
The VMG Board would like to offer formal thanks for you all for delivering an excellent series of talks on [Debt Management within GDPR regulations], at our inaugural VMG Regional Roadshow.
Fourteen meetings, spread across the width and length of the UK was a huge ‘ask’. When coupled with the adverse weather conditions experienced during the first part of 2018 it was a much-appreciated sterling effort to fulfil the commitment that started as a char over a coffee at LVS.
As a firm of Solicitors we use DebtSolve to collect invoice debts for our clients and to serve important Court documents.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in referring a debt to Debtsolve to collect. My experience of them is that they are very quick, proactive and thorough. They seem to treat each debt as though it were owed to them. My clients have reported that Debtsolve contact them with requests for more information and to give updates of progress.
I referred an old invoice debt to them recently for a client. Debtsolve collected the whole of the amount due within 24 hours of receiving my instruction.
“DSL have allowed me to relax with the monthly collection of a loan that I never thought I would ever see again. They have acted both professionally and personally by being a dependable and very friendly cornerstone to the recovery of my money which I just could not afford to lose. Many thanks to you all! I can sleep at night.”
I’m pleased to have been associated with DSL for many years now and still find them today as efficient and helpful as they were the first time I spoke to Linda and Mike Brooks around ten years ago. They offer afar better, more personal service than any other debt recovery company I have used in the past. You can be assured that they treat any debt you pass them as if it were their own and they will always go that extra mile to help you out. They have persevered with some very difficult customers I have given them over the years and they have still come through with full payment. A five star service from a very helpful, friendly and efficient five star team.”
Collecting veterinary debt throughout lockdown has been challenging to say the least. Several factors helped fuel debt growth: growth in pet ownership, car park consultations and treatment being carried out in practice while owners waited anxiously outside. That’s fine and the process worked in terms of treatment. The real problems occurred when it came time […]
