The ProZ \"Translation Agency Blue Board\" is providing a very valuable service, but it does unfortunately not solve all payment related problems.



Do you think it would be beneficial for the members if ProZ extended its services to the provision of a similar board for collection agencies?



Sven.



PS



Right now I would need a recommendation for an efficient collection agency in Belgium. Please post or e-mail any recommendation!



Sven.

A very good idea Sven!



Shouldn\'t be too difficult to implement, eh Jason/Henry?

As for collection agencies worldwide, the following site should be very useful:

Very handy, if needed.

Thank you for the URL Mar 12, 2002

Nevertheless, a ProZ \'Collection agency ratings\' option is a very smart idea.

Cheers,

Good idea Mar 18, 2012

Yes, it would be a most useful facility, provided that it worked like the Blue Board - frank comments on the helpfulness, etc. of such agencies from people who have actually used them.
I've only once had to use a collection agency, with disappointing results. It would have been helpful to be able to find out more about the effectiveness of any particular agency before choosing one.
