An Honest Message: The Holidays are No Time to Skip Payments on Your Bills

“Don’t be a Scrooge!” Sure, the message can make you feel that way. But everyone can relate to the crunch of the holiday season – debtors and collectors alike. Three months of back-to-back-to-back spends… mostly for our children; oftentimes for our friends and families as well.  We warm up with costumed crusaders and ghoulish traditions, sustained by sugar highs then slowly stewed and simmered through all-day extravaganzas of food and football consumption only to be amped right back up by the blitz of Black Friday and the three following shades of Monday – Cyber, Manic and Green – shot-gunned through a capitalized time warp of purchases and parties and delivered on Christmas Day for a weeklong bookend with New Years.

Phew! It’s a great time of year, filled with love if you’re lucky, but it’s also a time when we all feel stress infringing on our time and tugging on our finances. It’s important to remember this from both sides of the collection call...

Update to Placement Confirmation Report

Starting this month your next Placement Confirmation Reports will feature a new column called "Account Age (days)" which will display the number of days that have passed since the "Date of Service" for each account placed with Simon's Agency. This new column in effect shows the age of each and every account you place with us.
One of the major factors contributing to the likelihood of collecting an overdue bill is the age of the account in what is called the “Law of Diminishing Returns” which refers to a point at which the level of profits or benefits gained is less than the amount of money or energy spent in obtaining it.  In other words, there is an age at which collecting on an account is no longer profitable considering the effort spent in collecting in.
