Are we on the brink of a transformative shift in the credit and collections industry?

This question sets the stage for our thought-provoking discussion with industry experts, Dan Blagojevic (Optima Partners) and Chris Warburton (ROStrategy). 

“The only changes with AI is if you don't adopt it quickly, then customers will change loyalty to someone else. So you've got to be investing in this stuff now, listening to the customers, and if you're not there, then you're going to fall behind.” – Chris Warburton

Welcome to the first full episode of the Credit Shift podcast, brought to you by

This conversation is hosted by Webio Chief Strategy Officer, Paul Sweeney, and explores the role of AI in this sector and the strategic challenges poised by its slow adoption.

We delve into the power of AI in credit and collections, underlining the importance of accurate data and advocating for a new perspective on the role of credit and collections in a company's brand image. As we discuss the strategic implications of digitising credit and collections, our guests underscore the necessity for businesses to adapt, re-architect their systems and face the challenges of speed and sustainability.

We also engage in a critical dialogue around the balance of growth versus sustainability and its reception at the senior and board levels of companies.

We look at the transformative impact of automation in credit and collections, emphasising the significance of robust data management processes and contingency plans to avoid over-reliance on a single technology.

Be sure to join us in this insightful dialogue as we navigate the complex landscape of AI in the credit and collections industry.

“My biggest concern with this generative AI process is that customers will be individuals, will be asking ChatGPT and the likes for advice. That will be driving customer behavior. That customer behavior will then feed us as another data asset into the pool of data on which generative AI is being retrained. So the danger is that there is a big risk there, that the generative AI will start learning from its own processes in its own way of thinking” – Dan Blagojevic
