First Party vs Third Party Collections Defined
The difference between first-party and third-party collections lies in the approach used when contacting customers. In first-party collections, the collection agency or outsourcing company contacts customers using the client's name, employing a customer service approach. Meanwhile, in third-party collections, the agency contacts customers using its name and employs assertive, yet professional, tactics aimed at collecting the receivable before it turns into bad debt.
It's common for some customers to pay their accounts late, and effective collection efforts are necessary to maintain a healthy cash flow. However, managing slow-pay account AR collections on your own can be a burden and take away from time better spent on current receivables.
At Leib Solutions, we offer both first-party and third-party collection services for your company. Our advanced Carixa SaaS technology allows us to act as an extension of your staff, collaborate with your team, and help you collect your receivables. We understand that first-party collections management can prevent loss while maintaining healthy relationships with your clients, while third-party collections is the final step to prevent bad debts.

The Importance of Early Intervention
Early, consistent, and aggressive collection action is critical to preventing losses and maintaining healthy cash flow. At Leib Solutions, we understand the value and importance of early intervention when dealing with overdue accounts to avoid “customers” from turning into “debtors” and then rolling into third-party collection agency services, which is a core service offered at Leib Solutions. By focusing on early intervention first-party collections, we can help you avoid bad debts and retain the connection you have with your customers.
Age works against you. It is imperative that receivables get timely attention, as they lose value over time.
