The current economic situation is putting increasing financial pressure on utilities. Rising delinquencies and charge offs are occurring across the country. As more customers struggle to pay their bills, utilities must discover new methods and practices to maintain payments, stem delinquencies, and assist customers - many of whom have never been delinquent before. In this training event, hear new strategies from utilities in every region of the country. The focus of the program is to highlight how utilities must compete with other creditors for a share of the consumers' shrinking wallet, while creating a new balance between customer service and consistent recoveries.
