I would recommend that many more staff from Barbados Light and Power Company (BLPC), as well as the Barbados Water Authority (BWA), attend this training program to enhance and assist them in their efforts and capacity building.  Also, revenue management techniques and debt collection efforts were the areas that were most beneficial to me.

Revenue management and risk management were among several areas covered by the instructor.  I picked up a lot of valuable information on how I can improve my customer service contact procedures, as well as increasing and improving my revenue collection techniques.

This training workshop was very comprehensive. I received valuable information on how to prepare an emergency response plan.  As the supervising engineer, I will be able to implement some of the ideas I learned.  The instructor was very knowledgeable and was able to clarify many areas in which I had questions.
Robert Harewood, Engineer, Customer Service
Barbados Light and Power Company

 

Even though there were some areas in which I was already familiar, there were new insights and reinforcement of my understanding of the subject matter. 
All areas of this workshop were of value to me.  Debt collection strategies, debt collection letters that can be employed, benchmarking and measurement, all of these areas will add value to what our company is trying to achieve.
Also, many of the techniques that the instructor discussed can be used to improve the operations in the call center, as well as the collections and payment officers that are under my areas of responsibility.  The instructor used clear and simple language to get points across.

Debt collection is extremely important to every business.  The instructor discussed applicable practices to improve customer service loyalty.  Settling debt collection matters and acquiring information for customers is critical to its success.
I will be recommending greater focus on a more standardized process and the required team to support it.  I will also stress the importance of customer service education to all customer service staff, to get a greater understanding and cohesion to the collections approach.

I handle payment arrangements frequently.  I found the steps of securing full and partial payments and promises to pay, very valuable.
This course opened my mind to view my position in a new light, and not just as an ordinary job.  How one interacts with people while handling difficult situations, can make a difference in people’s lives.  This course will help me to promote a healthy public image by utilizing the acronym “VISPAC,” a term explained by the instructor
