troy develops a debt collection solution for SAP clients in the SAP.iO accelerator program


Lippstadt / Hamburg, 17 December 2019 – The FinTech startup troy, which specializes in customer-friendly debt collection, has developed a solution for the integration of its debt collection services into the finance module of SAP, the market leader in business software. The integration allows SAP clients to integrate troy as a debt collection partner with minimal effort. With troy, they can significantly reduce their debt defaults and optimize the customer experience for customers who owe money. The SAP integration also offers clients transparency in the debt collection process, as well as real-time management of internal and external processes.

The collaboration between troy and SAP was possible because troy – as one of the six European FinTechs in SAP.iO, the SAP startup initiative – was selected for participation in the accelerator program for FinTechs that launched in October 2019. Over a period of ten weeks, the six startups worked with SAP.iO on integrating their innovative financial solutions into the SAP solutions. troy revealed the results of the collaboration at the “Demo Day” on the stage of TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin on 12 December.

Philip Rürup, Founder and Managing Director of troy said: “Together with SAP.iO, we are bringing debt collection into the age of customer experience. During the accelerator program we were able to seamlessly integrate the troy platform into the SAP finance module in order to offer SAP customers fast onboarding and full transparency in our debt collection processes. As a result, SAP clients can expect to significantly reduce their debt defaults with very little effort, and keep valuable customers at the same time.

New debt collection solution by troy focuses on customer satisfaction

While in the past, collaborations with debt collection service provides were often a “black box” for clients, troy now provides full transparency for the finance managers at client companies. Financial officers can, in real time, see the current process status, the communication flow with each individual customer, and when payments take place. As a result, goods or services can be provided again much sooner to customers who were blocked from placing new orders until they have made payment. At the same time, the finance processes also thereby fulfil the high customer experience expectations that have, until now, only been present in the companies’ sales and CRM processes.
