Operating Systems & Technology

Our operating systems are designed to maximize the efficiency, effectiveness, and reliability of everything we do. We embrace technology with a critical eye on practicality and effectiveness. The technology tools and partnerships we have carefully integrated into our systems have significantly boosted our recovery for our clients, especially in difficult economic times.

Staff Training

Having the right people doing the right thing makes all the difference. That is precisely why our staff members receive extensive job-specific training designed to develop a highly professional, ethical, and consistent approach. Moreover, we provide ongoing auditing and coaching to ensure our training is effective. When a mistake does occur, in the course of handling hundreds of thousands of accounts, we promptly investigate, resolve, and re-train.

Legal Team

We have a full legal team in our office with decades of experience in our industry. They are true experts in this very specialized area of the law, and we work together with them every day to plan, collaborate, and problem-solve as a team. Our ability to utilize all of the legal tools available in a cost-effective manner is second to none.

Compliance & Security

Many of our clients – especially in healthcare, government, and finance – put compliance & security at the top of their priority list. We understand that, and we have a team of people focused on this essential part of our business. They work tirelessly behind the scenes each and every day to ensure our clients are protected, and they also develop custom solutions to meet each client’s unique needs.

In The Community

SB&C believes in making a difference in the community, both by setting an example in the way we conduct our business, and by genuinely and effectively helping people in need.

Security Certifications & Memberships

Leadership in organizations that guide the development of the collection industry is important to us. These organizations influence and guide policies in our industry, and as a collection leader, we believe involvement within these organizations is essential.
