The following is a brief overview of the NRA technology platform:
NRA uses a Collection Resource System (CRS), which is a fully networked between all NRA locations. CRS is an internal computer network that allows maximum flexibility and security with minimal service interruption and near unlimited growth. CRS was designed to deliver an unmatched combination of integrated voice, image, and data capabilities that maximize productivity. It allows the collection effort to become more productive and efficient and has a variety of features that enhance our collectors' ability to collect.
NRA utilizes call recording technology. In the collections industry, you need all the tools you can utilize to increase collections, to decrease errors, and to ensure legal compliance while providing the ability to deliver exceptional customer service. Call recording gives NRA the ability to record and monitor every call in real time providing management with the ability to make real-time decisions.
A vital part of the overall services provided by NRA, is keeping you informed of what is being accomplished in collecting accounts. Our collection system provides standard reports, which can be modified extensively to provide any custom report required by the client. Since the system is online, reports can be generated immediately and customized as needed.
National Recovery Agency works closely with clients both in the beginning of each program and through ongoing monthly or quarterly operations meetings to evaluate collection expectations, metrics, and benchmark tracking. Client Reporting mechanisms are put in place as well as Management Reporting, Performance Reporting, and Trust Accounting.

As part of our continued services, NRA provides a client portal that allows its clients to monitor account activity in< real-time, through our website at www.nragroup.com. In addition to uploading and reviewing accounts, clients can run reports based on their individual needs, verify or upload payments, and view the history of an account within its respective account file.
Unlike dial-up and other remote access options, our client portal is completely private and secure. Clients gain access with a login ID, password and a secure site with certificate. At this point, a private communication channel is established over the secure, encrypted private network operated and maintained by our proprietary software. Once logged on, all information including reports and functionality is available through an easy to use “point-and-click” system.

Internet File Transfer
Methods of encryption include:
We offer various encryption options for file transfer to ensure the security of data. NRA’s system interfacing allows us to exchange data to include case assignments, updates, returns and adjustments, via an electronic means.
SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) : Data is transferred via the Internet directly to NRA’s SFTP site. This method is the most commonly used and most preferred method of transfer because of the built-in data encryption to ensure information security.
PGP Encryption (File Transfer) : NRA maintains a protected FTP site or we can authenticate your FTP site to perform the transfer. An end user can attach a data file and encrypt the email using PGP or other utilities. The data file arrive security at our site and is logged so the data can be processed for conversion into CRS.
Web SSL : Any “secure” Web Portal we utilize such as NAVIGATE and the Billing Tree (EPP) uses this type of encryption.
IP Sec Tunnel : All VPNs we utilize – Site to Site VPNs, Remote Access to Clients that use VPN, etc.
