We Listen. We Develop. We Improve.

DebtCol began providing software to the debt collection industry in 1999. After working in the debt collection industry for ten years, the founder, Sandy Barrett, decided to develop a software system to satisfy his desire for improved efficiencies, which would meet the growing needs of the industry who were demanding it.

Since then, the business has evolved into one of Australia's most respected and awarded software systems that meet, if not exceed our client's expectations.

Our people have vast experience working for and with various-sized agencies, so we understand your needs and challenges.

We understand that competition in collections and field services is fierce, with small margins. DebtCol is full of productivity features aimed at increasing your margins. DebtCol is extraordinarily user-friendly and customisable for building workflows based on your business model.
