Prepare Your Disputes Management to Handle 

Rising Volumes. Rising disputes volumes continue to exhaust dispute processing operations with no signs of abating.

Notably, complaints to regulators surged nearly 100% in the first months of the coronavirus pandemic.

Here, Bridgeforce shares 3 key elements guaranteed to increase disputes management efficiency, if executed properly.


Increase Operational Efficiency by up to 30% with Seamless Approach

Tackle these three key areas for increased operational efficiencies and successful disputes management.

1. Disputes Processing Effectiveness

Adjustment Efficiency Wins
Deploy a Dispute Case Management System (CMS)

  • Enable automated upload of indirect disputes from e-OSCAR and manual input of Direct Disputes
  • Automate updates from the Dispute CMS to all systems of record (SOR)
  • All customer disputes are visible in a single system, eliminating the need for agents to cross-reference in multiple systems
  • Eliminates the need for time-consuming manual input, while reducing errors with efficiency improvements ranging from 5-10%
Implement a dispute queue structure

  • Aggregate indirect disputes and assign to targeted queues for consistency when conducting a reasonable investigation (e.g., Dispute queue – Account Ownership)
  • Increase investigation expertise by segmenting dispute codes and reduces inconsistent investigation outcomes, thus saving time and improving customer experience
Consolidate duplicate submissions

  • “Group” duplicate disputes for parallel investigation by a dedicated analyst
  • Improves processing time and consistent response to the customer – can reduce duplicate dispute processing time by 30+%

2. Data Quality Management to Confirm Accuracy of Furnished Data

Adjustment Efficiency Wins
Review data and coding systematically

  • Perform routine comprehensive data assessments
  • Conduct code mapping to certify alignment between system of record and furnished data
  • Reduces compliance risk and dispute volumes due to better reporting of customer data furnished to the CRAs
  • Achieves up to a 30% decrease in disputes rate when DQS implementation is coupled with operational changes

3. Forecasting and Planning to be Prepared for any Volume

Adjustment Efficiency Wins
Evaluate internal dispute processing

  • Analyze volumes and processing time by dispute type
  • Forecast volumes to evaluate the efficacy of strategies
  • Review processing changes to assess efficiency opportunities
  • Enables segmentation of disputes to establish effective queue to streamline processing
  • Facilitates understanding of processing gaps to identify issues early
  • Ensures compliant processing
