When changing billing and statement vendors, your goals of improving service and value is combined with the ultimate challenge of avoiding disruption for your customers.
It deserves to be said again … deciding to change vendors can bring uncertainty. Evaluating your options is smart
In this part 2 of 2, we outline 5 more key points to consider when making this type of change. These might be signs that it may be time to transition vendors.
Does your current vendor take weeks and possibly months to implement a change? Responding to your changing needs promptly is a critical part of your outsourcing requirements.
7. Missing the SLAs
Late turn-around times are a clear violation of your agreement. It is also a sure sign that you are not being served at the same level as their other customers.
8. Problems with your data
Are you having issues with deliverability, bad addresses, missing data, messaging and or reporting? Do you have clearly defined protocols with the handling and management of your data? You should.
9. Lack of quality control standards and procedures for problem resolution
Critical business communications with customer data requires 100% accuracy. Do you have a copy of your vendor’s QC protocols? Are they certified with Hi-Trust, SOC 2 and HIPAA compliance?
10. Managing the vendor is too hard
