The reason for this is simple: the LaMATS service has been proven to increase collections, streamline the process, and significantly reduce delinquent tax payments from insurance companies.
Municipal Debt Recovery Service
This is a turnkey delinquent receivables management and collections program that gives local government another important tool to recover revenue due from individuals for services or fines levied by competent jurisdiction. The service is comprehensive and deploys the most sophisticated and modern techniques to locate individuals through multiple skip tracing, certified notices, letter campaigns when necessary, and calls placed by qualified and well-trained professionals. All action taken on behalf of a municipality is well documented and made available to staff and local officials, including call logs and recordings, via a web-based, easy-to-navigate user interface at no additional charge.
This program benefits participating municipalities by reviewing long-term franchise fee agreements (multi-year contracts with local power companies, telecom providers and others) to determine if changes to law, customer base or other factor might indicate increased revenue potential.
