About First Recovery Solutions
First Recovery Solutions, Inc. was formed from the idea that we could be categorized as 'a great collection agency' if we followed certain criteria. First, providing exceptional customer service to our business clients. We listen to our clients needs instead of telling them 'what they should have' or 'how they should do things'. Second, demonstrating unparalleled professional service to the consumer from whom we recover debt. We are collection professionals who do not judge and use our background to find debt repayment solutions. Finally, by providing opportunities to an excellent staff of employees charged with performing their jobs at a high level.
Our vision was to be more than a begrudged ‘next step’ in your handling of accounts receivable. We are a behind-the-scenes partner to you in the debt collection and prevention process, as well as a reliable and secure manager of data, payment remission, and a ready resource for information reporting.
