1. Minimize Administrative Burden and Streamline Tasks

Full service billing takes the entire payment processing and accounts receivable burden off your plate. This means:

  • No longer chasing down members for late fees or tracking down updated card details.
  • Not spending anymore hours on the phone with your payment processor trying to fight chargebacks.

2. Collect More Revenue, Faster

ABC Ignite uses proven communication processes to proactively connect with members about expiring cards or missed payments. As a result, you’re able to prevent interruptions in your cash flow and can avoid the hassle of reactivating paused accounts all together.

When late or missed payments do occur, our software springs into action, initiating an automated series of emails, calls, and text messages to resolve the balance in a timely manner.

For accounts that remain past due, automated communication flows encourage timely resolution of the balance. This systematic approach ensures that delinquent accounts are addressed promptly and efficiently, minimizing the impact on your cash flow.

4. Empower Members Through an Easy-to-Use Portal

ABC Ignite’s member portal provides a user-friendly interface for customers to update details and make payments. This self-service option empowers members to take control of their accounts, reducing the burden on your staff and improving overall customer satisfaction.
