You will find that most
reviews about AmerAssist that you find on this site, as well as other sites
(Better Business Bureau, Angieslist, etc.), are absolutely true. They are all
correct in stating that AmerAssist is a company that will guarantee you a VERY BAD
EXPERIENCE and a couple Nightmares.
Do business with them, and you'll wish for a Time Machine. With
that being said, here's my story:
AmerAssist A/R Solutions Inc. promotes themselves as being
able to "solve your cash flow challenges related to aging accounts
receivable". As a current client of
AmerAssist A/R Solutions Inc., I find that very difficult to believe. In fact, after just speaking with one of
their representatives (Mr. Sean Schultz), I was flatly told that aged accounts
have a much lower likelihood of being retrieved by his company. I found this to be in direct contrast with
the company's above claim, and challenged Mr. Schultz's statement by asking if
the performance (or lack thereof) of his company could have been a larger
factor. At this mere question, Mr.
Schultz proceeded to become very agitated, raise his voice in the most unprofessional
manner, and partially run out of breath in an effort to overtalk my concerns
and steamroll my question.
In my company, this troublesome act by itself, would
necessitate immediate corrective action, retraining and/or dismissal. As a business
owner, I would NEVER allow the simple presentation of a question to jar my
professional foundation (or that of my employees) to the point that I was berating
one of my customers, simply because I was uncomfortable or because I did not
have an appropriate answer.
Additionally, I have been loathe to discover after spending
considerable amounts of money, that this is not just a Sean Schultz problem and
that AmerAssist A/R Solutions Inc. itself is not a reputable company. They are a Deceptive, Misleading, Get you on
their hook, Spin you around in circles when you have a concern type of company(?). They have zero incentive to actually do the
work they promise for the entire first year, and only start their efforts after
the first year, as it is then that they become entitled to keep HALF of any
profits that they may collect for you.
It's actually a very elegant scam.
That is, until the Federal comes running. Stay away from this company at all costs.
Needless to say, I will be terminating my businesses
involvement with them on all levels, immediately.
