The CFPB’s New Rules
Agent Performance and Speech Analytics
In the CFPB’s new rules, there is an exception to the seven contact attempts in seven days rule if the customer has provided specific consent to be contacted. SMS and Email are also exempt from the limit, but you’ll need consent to reach customers on these channels too.
What’s the Problem?
Your agents are going to be key in capturing that consent and the opportunity that comes with it. Inversely, you’ll also need to make sure that your agents are responding properly when a customer opts out of a specific channel. This is on top of all the pre-existing legal requirements that agents have to adhere to on debt collection calls. Consider these questions:
Can you review 100% of your calls to ensure you aren’t missing out on customer consent opportunities?
What visibility do you have on how agents are handling mandatory statements, consent and opt-outs?
Can you quickly identify agent performance outliers and provide targeted coaching and training?

What Do I Need to Do About the New CFPB Rules?
Make sure you have the right technology in place to ensure you follow the rules.
Evaluate Your Operations
Assess whether you are breaching the rules now and whether you’ll be able to make sure you don’t in the future.
Create a Strategy
Understand what processes and products you will need to have in place to comply with the new rules. Determine when you should start testing them.
Use Digital Channels
SMS and emails will not count towards the 7-in-7. Supplementing your calls with digital channels will be key to reaching customers.
Monitor, Monitor, Monitor
Run exception reporting and see how many attempts you’re making to customers in a seven-day period.
It will be more critical than ever to capture channel-specific consent from your customers. This will require robust consent management.
