ARM firm automates compliance management and agent productivity with Provana platform and analytics

Newark, DE – August 2, 2021 – SIMM Associates, Inc. (“SIMM”), a full-service ARM and BPO Customer Care call center that provides third party collections, first party (pre-default) collections, probate collection solutions and customer engagement/telesales, celebrated its 30th year of operation this month. Ranked as a top 100 agency in the US, SIMM continues to expand its services and digitize its operations to scale and serve more customers, ranging from the Fortune 500 to local credit issuers.

Most recently, SIMM began working with Provana, the unified platform for credit and collections process management, to gain operational insight and automate call center speech analytics, compliance monitoring and reporting. Provana gives SIMM’s leadership the ability to digitally manage a vast amount of data related to compliance and agent performance within a single solution.

“Having this kind of operational analytics at the tip of your fingers is critical in today’s hyper-regulated environment for credit and collections firms,” said Jeff Simendinger, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at SIMM Associates. “Because our clients are required to comply with industry standards, they in-turn require us to prove that we support these regulations as well. It’s a huge comfort to know we have the real-time data to demonstrate our own rigor in compliance management.”

“Beyond automating compliance monitoring and reporting, Provana helps aggregate disparate data sources for full transparency into collections operations and due diligence,” said Sean Clark, Senior Vice President of Platforms at Provana. “It’s exciting to see our robust analytics support rapid growth for firms like SIMM, and we look forward to partnering with them for years to come.”
