FAQs

 

Q: Does CMS allow me to configure processes based on my company’s business model?

 

A: CMS is highly configurable and supports a wide variety of business processes. CMS uses an approach of steps and actions. Steps are the processes that need to be followed in order to bring a case to closure. Actions are the things you need to do to implement the steps.

 

You develop steps and actions that are required in your company’s business model. Then assign the steps and actions to your cases. A case cannot be closed until the required actions and steps have been completed.

 

By configuring CMS to support your business model, you automatically get employees to adhere to required processes.

 

Q: How does CMS help my staff manage cases?

 

A: CMS provides a complete solution for case management. You can enter all information relating to a case into CMS, including client, creditor and subject information, actions pending or taken with regard to the case, and all financial transactions. CMS provides up to the minute reports, case histories, and next steps.

 

You can also use CMS to record all your communications with clients, subjects and creditors and you can upload any other documents relevant to the case to store in the online file.

 

Q:  What if I want to share case information with my clients?

 

A:  CMS allows you to assign login permission with limited scope to clients and other points of contact with whom you wish to share case information. This feature allows you to share important information with clients while preserving privacy for company proprietary data such as financial information.

 

      Because the web-based interface is so easy to use, you won’t need to waste time training clients on the system. Because the system is online 24/7, remote clients in different time zones can access the system at their convenience, and get up to the minute status on their cases.

 

Q: How does CMS keep track of case history?

 

A: When you use CMS to enter all the steps and actions you are taking in your cases, you will have a complete recorded case history. You can add notes to the case at any point to record phone conversations or other external communication with clients and case contacts. Use CMS to manage every aspect of the case, including communications with creditors and subjects. Whether the case is closed or still open you can see all actions taken with regard to the case, all financial transactions and all communications. CMS keeps track of all actions taken to resolve a case or bring it to closure. The more you use CMS to manage your cases, the more complete your case history will be.

Q: Some of my cases are complex. Does CMS support complex cases with multiple subjects?

 

A: You can break any large case into sub-cases to make it easier to manage large cases or assign different parts of a case to different users. You decide where it makes sense to make the divisions. Each sub case has to be closed in order to close the case, so you won’t lose track of any details if relating to your cases.
