International debt collection - Arvato Infoscore now in Benelux countries
The company has expanded its services in European countries outside Germany and now offers claims recovery not only in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Hungary, but also in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. The company has taken over the Financial Services division of Arvato Benelux with effect from 1 August 2012.
This transnational services package enhances the company’s European presence in key neighboring countries: "Two partners with a strong presence in their domestic markets are joining forces to offer their customers professional debt collection across national borders," says Johan Zevenhuizen, Managing Director of the Arvato Infoscore Collection division.
By integrating the Dutch financial services division, Arvato infoscore is expanding its services with a partner that already has a local presence in the three Benelux countries. "We are confident that by expanding the business in this way, we offer our customers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg real added value as they expand internationally to neighboring European countries," says Peter Meefout, CEO Arvato infoscore Benelux. "With Arvato Infoscore, we combine many years of expertise in risk and claims management in the German market with our knowledge of the market in the Benelux countries into an interesting offer for all customers who do business in these countries."
Arvato Infoscore plans to attain a leading role in the Benelux market over the next five years with this integration, thereby strengthening its growth strategy in Europe. In future Dutch, Belgian and Luxembourg customers will be able to avail themselves of the debt purchasing services already offered in Germany in these countries, and vice versa.
They will have only one contact person who coordinates operations across all the countries for them, provides integrated reporting, and can draw on in-house experts for market expertise in each country.
