I see numerous repossession companies advertising which skip trace software they use in their office. You see it listed on the front page of websites, you see it on news paper advertisements and you see even on their business cards. To me it would be normal for the actual software companies to advertise to the repossession or investigation industry, but it makes no sense for a repo company to add this to its ads. It’s one thing to say you do skip trace work and you do it well, but I would think that by adding what software you use no matter which one it is kind of downgrades the company in the skip trace arena.
Why is it bad to list what software you use?
First of all even repossession companies that do not do skip trace probably have a skip trace software program just to quickly run an address prior to spending money on gas. Just to do basic skip tracing even without charging for it. It would probably end up saving them a ton of money in gas as so many people move so often today. The thing is that every finance company and bank have a software program as well, they will typically do that basic search for you before sending over the case.
