"On behalf of the magazine, we are very pleased to bestow this honor on Fair Isaac for the second consecutive year," says T. Allen Rose, Collection Advisor Editor and Publisher. "Fair Isaac represents a market leader whose solutions for collections and recovery present true innovation and insight within the industry."
