WHAT WE SELL
Indox sells an outsourced document collection service.
Indox collects the pay slips, bank statements and ID documents of the borrower(s) who
approach a Credit Provider for a loan. Indox is capable of collecting any document type. The collection of these documents is performed by a combination of:
(i) bespoke software
(ii) professional document collection agents and
(iii) a deep understanding of email, SMS, call centre and automatic voice interaction technologies.
Indox is able to minimize the cost of acquisition of such documents and ensure the Credit Provider's compliance with legislation.
The service is offered as a complete business process outsourced solution.
WHO WE SELL TO
Indox targets all South African Credit Providers that are regulated by the National Credit Act and the National Credit Regulator.
Until 13 March 2015 there were no clear legally enforceable regulations prescribing the method to be used by a Credit Provider in ensuring the ability of a prospective borrower to repay the loan granted. The National Credit Amendment Act now requires a Credit Provider to validate the gross income of the borrower by referring to the borrower’s:
(a) most recent 3 months consumer’s pay slips;
(b) most recent 3 months bank statements or
(c) any other similar credible information to prove affordability.
Indox market research confirms that Credit Providers in South Africa are significantly unprepared for the document collection requirements of the legislation. lnDox’s bespoke software, pending integration into South African document repositories, together with its deep expertise in document collection services are well placed to capitalize on this opportunity and continue to be a market leader in this space.
