Bring skilled collectors to lower yielding debt segments - provide competitive advantage and superior returns.

Astra imparts the ability to manage profitability of medium and low yielding segments of critical US operations, through effective cost structures and a resourceful Indian taskforce in the existing regulatory environment. To ensure that the customer data is stationed in the US, our India site is integrated into a centralized state-of-the-art data center in Jacksonville, Florida. All the above factors empower both Astra and its US based collection agency clients to confront the various challenges faced in the business on a daily basis in form of:

  • Requiring management bandwidth to set up and stabilize local India operations.
  • Maintaining control, transparency and productivity of data on Indian site.
  • Day to day operational management, ongoing monitoring, coaching and training.
  • Managing payment transactions, client service and reporting requests from Clients.
  • Developing various channels to address security and regulatory concerns.

As a full-service licensed collection agency, Astra has independently and proficiently managed client relationships. In our role of a facilitator to our client’s businesses we offer them a variety of options that can enhance their influence in a “branch office” location. We partner with our clients to extend an amalgamation of standard and customized services, catering to their specific requirements. We provid our customers with periphery security coupled with dedicated VPN tunnels using the highest levels of encryption standards. This allows clients to bring their own collection platforms to their respective branches to ensure that data never leaves their systems. The client is further enabled to see the activity in real-time and know the status of each consumer contact or transaction. The file transfers occur over secure FTP or PGP encrypted emails.

ASTRA AS A RELIABLE AND RESPONSIVE OFFSHORE PARTNER
