Description This application offers seemless integration of all activities related to managing and settling credit card debts. It helps track contacts with all parties involved in the settlement process, including clients, their creditors as well as agents representing creditors.

To assist users in quickly accessing a client's account status, they can search by several different criteria. Multiple search results display a list of clients or their cases, which can be used to drill to the details about any client or their cases.

Follow-up tasks and conversation notes, such as phone calls, about each client and/or their cases are created and tracked to provide a complete history of the account, as well as the current status of every client. Many tasks and notes are automatically generated upon occurrence of key events, such as completion of a settlement or account closure.

Details about settlement offers, as well as counteroffers are tracked. Offers can be generated in bulk or individually, based on each client's trust account balance.

Dozens of pre-filled MS-Word® templates are available to users to save them time in creating documents produced during the normal course of business. These Canned Letters are also tracked to avoid unnecessary duplication.

Electronic Fund Transfers (EFTs) are automatically created based on the amount, frequency (e.g., weekly, semi-monthly or monthly), processing date and need for settlement funds. These EFTs are then submitted to the EFT Clearing House and their processig status posted in the system.

It creates hundreds of offer letters based on funds available in the client trust accounts on that day .

The system also creates and manages settlement payments to creditors and their agents. Payments can be scheduled in any combination of amounts based on the projected availability of funds in a client's trust account.

In short, all elements related to Client Services, Account Services, Settlement Services, Electronic Funds Transfer, Accounts Receivables, as well as Agent Commissions are handled through this application.
