One of the main reasons Account Maintenance is outsourced is cost. Repetitious and labor intensive activities put the management of a large Database, outside the price range of many small companies. But with Outsourcing to an offshore company, they can compete in a global market.
Account maintenance can be either the cleaning out of old and unwanted files, or the checking of security Data. To keep records tidy and up to date, the outsourced company will constantly ask the customer for a quality report. The easiest method of doing this, is to email a survey. These can have a financial reward, to gain the customer’s trust and enthusiasm, and consequently, their consent.

Security can be in the form of tracing the purchase history of an account. In the credit card industry a customer can have their purchase history looked at in detail, to make sure a thief is not using their account. If the activity is outside of their normal activity, in items or the area they live, then there may be a breach of security. To this end, there must be a constant maintenance for reconciliation to take place.
Customers will only feel confident if they know a dispute will be resolved in the future. Bad publicity over uncaring companies can only work against future sales.
