We were built for this

When you make taking care of your employees your main mission as an organization, you never think that a pandemic could show you just why this is so critical to a business. While we miss the family atmosphere that once was our corporate office, the team-like way in which everyone rowed the same way, and the personal manner we help each other grow in a face to face environment, we have seen some of the most amazing teamwork during COVID-19 that we have ever seen.

We earned another spot on the Best Places to Work in Collections for the 13th year in a row this past week, and we are all very proud. As an organization, […]

People are passionate and emotional because they care

By Greg:

2020 is clearly going to be remembered as the year of the pandemic.  Covid-19 dominated the news, and no one can deny how much it has impacted our lives.  For some it brought illness and grief, for others it brought unemployment and struggle, and for the fortunate ones it brought inconvenience.  However, I believe that it revealed some basic truths about us as people, and what we truly care about.  No, I’m not talking about stocking up on canned goods, bottled water, and toilet paper.  I’m also not talking about the strength of our internet bandwidth, or even our political beliefs.  What I am talking about are the fundamental things that all people […]

Giving Thanks!

“Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life.  Keep going.  Tough situations build strong people in the end” – Roy Bennett

No surprise, but 2020 has been a challenge for all of us!  I find that in the most challenging and darkest times is when I have grown and reflected the most.  Even though we have all faced incredible challenges this year, there is SO much to be thankful for.  Thankful for our friends and family.  Thankful for living in the greatest country in the world, by far.  And then we have more […]

Successful Entrepreneurs

Theoretical Underpinnings

Our PR guy was in town this time last year and among all of the really good questions that were asked during filming, there was one that struck me. What gets you out of bed in the morning?

My first thought was when you have hobbies like hunting and fishing, you’re always awake before the sun comes up. It also means that you wait for the weekdays to ‘sleep in’ (if only until 5 am).

My second thought was about my childhood. When I was a kid we burned firewood in the winter to heat our home. It was a decent size, two-story house with a gambrel (barn-shaped) roof. The physics of wood heat is that […]

What I love about my job is helping others

By Tracey:

I have been through many changes in my life and never for one minute would I have thought I would change careers and become a collection specialist. In January I took a great leap of faith and was offered a job at American Profit Recovery. I feel it was the best thing I ever did. […]

Why cash flow is so important

There are many reasons collection agencies exist. And while many consumers do not like being on the receiving end of a communication from a collection agency, companies like ours provide a necessary service to organizations that have challenges in getting their customers and clients to pay or pay on time.

It does not matter what size your company is. You are always going to have issues around payments, invoices and getting cash in the door in a timely fashion. And there is one thing we say over and over again here at American Profit Recovery. If you are in business, people are going to owe you money. That is just a fact of operating a business […]

Collection agencies can help with some of your biggest concerns

The amount of concerns and issues a business owner, entrepreneur or anyone in senior leadership has on their minds on any given day can be countless to say the least. From bringing in enough business, being able to handle that business, everything to do with hiring and firing, cash flow, legal matters, and so much more. And if you are in one of these positions, then you know this all too well.

Customers and clients paying you on time or paying you at all can be one of your biggest concerns. When cash doesn’t come in the door on time, that can present a huge challenge for your organization. Not the least of which is meeting […]

On the fence about hiring a collection agency?

We are going to make a bold assumption. That you have customers that have not paid you yet. They are either late in paying you, or they have not paid you at all. Whether it was an oversight, a dispute in your product or service, or maybe that customer has just struggled financially and they have decided not to pay your business. There are so many reasons why a customer or client has not paid you yet and it’s a tough situation to be in when you’re trying to improve your cash flow.

Hiring a collection agency to help with your cash flow is an important decision you need to make for your organization. The decision […]

What are the best ways to get customers to pay on time?

There are not many factors that control the cash flow of a business more than customers and the time frame in which they pay for products or services. In short, customers pay late, cash flow suffers. Customers pay on time, resulting in positive cashflow. When it comes to accounts receivables, it’s that simple.

However, we are not living in an ideal world and for many in business, chasing down payments is just part of running a business. If your organization extends credit in any way, you’ll be investing some measure of resources in trying to get paid on time. From forgetful customers, disputes to a charge to the more trying cases such as customer just not […]

Find a solution in every problem

By: Pocholo Alvarez 

As I come closer to my two-year anniversary here at American Profit Recovery, I can’t think of all the changes that happened ever since I walked in through the front door. Just like the majority of the world, I had a bad interpretation of what a debt collector is. After spending even the first few days in the company, I realized that the people that I work with really do care about helping our clients and consumers. It’s understandable that people are going to have a hard time with paying their debts, especially with COVID-19 affecting everyone’s lives. That’s where we step in to help, and I can truly say that American […]
