FleetCor Technologies, Inc., selects Experian’s Delinquency Notification ServiceSM to improve commercial collections efforts

Costa Mesa, Calif., Dec. 06, 2011 — Experian®, the leading global information services company, today announced that FleetCor Technologies, Inc., a worldwide leader in managing and processing commercial fuel cards, has selected Experian’s Delinquency Notification ServiceSM  to improve its commercial collections efforts and help proactively notify debtors of delinquent accounts.

“Prior to the implementation of Experian’s Delinquency Notification Service, we were challenged with finding a solution that would help us to better reach our clients and increase the number of delinquent accounts we received payment on,” said Gokhan Samur, FleetCor’s director of risk account management. “The service has allowed us to significantly improve collections efforts, as well as improve customer relationships by educating them on resources that can help them better understand their credit rating.”

Through a database of customer contact and debt information, Experian’s Delinquency Notification Service enables FleetCor to contact its debtors with information indicating the debtor’s current financial obligations and provides FleetCor’s instructions for payment. Debtors also are educated on how delinquency can affect commercial credit and are provided access to additional resources that assist them in the credit management process.

“With the current economic downturn, collecting on business debt has become a heightened priority for debt issuers and other financial institutions,” said Allen Anderson, president of Experian’s Business Information Services. “Our Delinquency Notification Service is a cost-effective way for financial institutions to increase the likelihood of receiving payments from their delinquent commercial accounts.”
