Serving our clients is the #1 priority for all of us here at EMA, and we’re proud that our efforts are recognized. This is demonstrated by our clients frequently going out of their way to thank our employees - something we are told is unfortunately rarely done with other vendors.

Our experience has taught us that listening is what keeps EMA ahead of the account services curve. For this reason, we meet with our clients quarterly and continually tailor our services to create a success story. Our clients understand that we are not a national agency that counts them as a number, and they understand that we are not a collection agency looking to dabble in the delicate area or active receivables.

We welcome you to contact us to experience for yourself how EMA can benefit your organization. We're here to help!
