Avoid costly and embarrassing mistakes when initiating debt repayment procedures.

Approaching the wrong individual at the wrong address slows down the collections process, adversely affects your financial stability, and can generate bad press and damage customer relations. Equifax Dispute Alerts help you avoid all this by detailing any previous activity and concerns at an address. The system means you can reduce erroneous contacts, tailoring your approach to the debtor and not troubling innocent parties unconnected to the debt.

 

Access and manage alerts in real time and integrate data with your own systems.

Equifax Dispute Alerts highlight issues on individual accounts as they arise, so that you can plan your collections strategies more confidently and effectively. New features allow you to add new disputes and to search, edit or delete existing disputes. The system can be accessed as part of the Equifax XML Locate service and is available with Equifax Batch and Equifax Book Analyser. Equifax Dispute Alerts are delivered online or in batches via Equifax Explorer, or as XML documents integrated directly into your own systems, for speed and ease of use.
