Who are we?

Download Asili Information Brochure

Asili was founded in December 2010, as black owned and managed debt collections firm incorporating modern debt collection processes, systems and strategies to recover debts on behalf of our Clients. From inception debt collection was, and still is, the main area in which we specialise. Our focused approach combined with offering our Clients individually customised solutions to their debt recovery requirements, have allowed us to grow in the five years since the Company began operations.

A primary advantage is that we are a debt collections firm with a sound understanding of modern debt recovery principles through the use of our technology and call centre operations. This enables us to apply proactive early stage and pre-legal collection strategies. This experience has been brought to bear on our managed service solutions

Asili operates within the frameworks as set out by the Council for Debt Collectors (“CDC”), Association of Debt recovery Agents (“ADRA”) and The Payment System Stakeholder Forum (“PSSF”). Our membership numbers are as follows:

  1. CDC Reg.: 0043119/10
  2. ADRA Reg.: 866; and
  3. PSSF Reg.: B01235
  4. QSE 16 08 009 - Asili Risk Management (Pty) Ltd

Asili is a B-BBEE Contributor: Level 1

Leveraging on our experience as Call Centre and communications management we now offer Contact Centre Managed services that cover the full spectrum of requirement of a Contact Centre. This is from establishment to operation. We have successfully deployed this model and know that we can replicate it to other clients with similar needs.
