(Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) - Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE: FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced a partnership with Business Processes Redefined, LLC (BPR) to deliver sophisticated collection and recovery services to corporate clients. This offering is a cost-effective, results-driven alternative to traditional collection practices.

The partnership pairs Fair Isaac's proven collection and analytic solutions with BPR's new and unique agency management outsourcing model. Using Fair Isaac's ScoreNet® credit vendor network and PlacementsPlus® agency management solution, BPR segments its clients' receivables according to a variety of criteria, including age, balance and type of debt. BPR then parcels out each segment to multiple collection agencies that have a demonstrated record of success managing specific types of portfolios.

Many of the world's largest companies use Fair Isaac collection and recovery solutions to improve their collection operations. This partnership will enable a wider universe of companies to take advantage of Fair Isaac technology and analytical capabilities by working with BPR.

"By combining the world-class capabilities of Fair Isaac's PlacementsPlus and ScoreNet solutions with BPR's expertise in collection strategy, our customers will greatly increase their revenues in the collections and recovery market," said Randy Halvorson, director, Collection and Recovery Product Management, Fair Isaac. "Our mutual clients will benefit from preferred contingency rates and superior results from the multi-tier placement strategies, allowing them to earn a higher net return on delinquent receivables than they could by managing collections in-house or by directly outsourcing to collection agencies."

"Creditors seldom have the information they need to choose the right agency, or they lack the resources to manage the performance of outside suppliers," said Lauren A. Irwin-Szostak, founder and president, BPR. "Our approach, in conjunction with Fair Isaac's industry leading solutions, allows creditors to enjoy maximum returns, while unburdening themselves of a non-core business process."
