eMatrix collections training programs have been designed by a team of subject matter experts whose backgrounds include credit, collections and debt purchase, complaints, quality, insolvency, psychology and mental health.  This range of perspective has been built into the eMatrix programs over the past 10 years, constantly evolving to meet the changing collections landscape.

eMatrix offers organisations, both commercial and government, throughout Australia and New Zealand, specialised collections training and coaching programs, through a full range of face to face, virtual and online train-the-trainer programs.

FACE TO FACE & VIRTUAL TRAINING

COLLECTIONS TODAY IS A JUGGLING ACT

Front line collection staff are now in a role where more than ever they are expected to balance commercial outcomes, including increased compliance and governance, with the need to identify and provide support to those experiencing financial difficulties.

TRAINING PROGRAMS AND SUPPORT

The training programs we deliver, range from full day programs, to larger scale projects where behavioural change is required.  These can include eMatrix supporting the programs through coaching, call quality and leadership development.

SUPPORTING ORGANISATIONS TO BALANCE THESE NEEDS

The eMatrix team supports organisations build their capability to balance these needs.  The eMatrix philosophy is simple – Build trust with your customer, earn the right to ask the right questions and have a respectful conversation.  The best solution will follow.  It may not always be the one that makes the customer happy for today.

CUSTOMISED TO YOUR ORGANISATION

The training is customised to suit the unique opportunities your organisation is looking to address from cultural change, onboarding, improved financial outcomes, improved customer engagement and better support for customers or for upskilling existing teams and refreshed strategies for managing debt portfolios.

DESIGNED BY AUSTRALIAN TRAINERS

These courses are designed by Australian trainers to ensure all training is geared to the nuances of Australian culture, how we engage with each other and our expectations of organisations, as customers.   Knowing too, that taking time away from work is challenging for organisations, and that our concentration span in these hectic times is limited, the content is designed to be run as short team workshops, through multi-media, discussions and examples of practical application, supported with Instructor and Quick Reference Guides.

COVID-19 RELEVANT

Material is COVID-19 relevant, with modules ready to deploy for upskilling staff in how to deal with vulnerability and manage their own mental health and wellbeing at work.   We also provide best practise tips and tricks for virtual delivery.
