SAO PAULO — March 31, 2014 — FICO (NYSE:FICO), a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced that the Mexican bank Invex will use FICO® Debt Manager 9 solution to improve collections results for delinquent credit cards. It will be the first business to deploy FICO Debt Manager 9 on premise in Mexico.
“We believe that FICO’s expertise will help us increase our productivity in early- and late-stage collections both in our internal collection operations as well as with our external collections agencies throughout Mexico,” said José Luis Salsamendi, Vice President of Operations at Invex, which has more than US$3.342 billion in assets and more than 120,000 credit cards. “FICO Debt Manager 9 will also help us improve our relationships with our customers, who are very important to us, even when they fall behind in payments. The challenge of resolving delinquency without alienating or losing the customer might sound simple, but it requires having up-to-the-minute information and the ability to modify payment terms very quickly.”
“Invex is an innovator in Mexican financial services, so choosing the leading end-to-end collections and recovery solution was a natural choice,” said Alexandre Graff, general manager for FICO in Latin America and the Caribbean. “Collections teams are increasingly challenged not only to increase their debt collecting efficiency and effectiveness, but also to provide a positive customer experience. By selecting FICO Debt Manager 9, Invex demonstrates its commitment to profitable growth as well as to maintaining the trust of its customers.”
