autodialer and letter vendors) putting e-mail solutions in the marketplace. They
can provide a hosted solution to
integrate with your company’s existing
collection systems and can also store
your data. While some vendors might
not charge any additional start-up costs

others charge per e-mail.
Vendors can also provide additional
features. For instance, some companies
offer tracking services, which notify the
dialer if an e-mail from a consumer’s
address has been received. Other
services include scoring, delivery
confirmation, data storage and payment

Bandwidth and storage are other
considerations when implementing an in-house application. It is important to have
enough bandwidth and server capacity to
accommodate the volume of e-mails you
