MINNEAPOLIS—July 19, 2012—FICO (NYSE:FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced the general availability of FICO® TRIAD® Customer Manager version 8.6, the most advanced version of the world’s leading solution for credit customer treatment decisions, used to manage two-thirds of the world’s credit card accounts and multi-product portfolios.

The new version is designed to help lenders make more precise, customer-level decisions on lending and credit line limits, pricing, transaction authorizations, cross-selling and collections. The changes in FICO TRIAD 8.6 make it easy for lenders to manage decisions on small business borrowers.

Equipped with unique and powerful strategy design and visualization capabilities, FICO® TRIAD® Customer Manager enables users to implement decision strategies based on a comprehensive customer-level view, rather than simply at the account level. FICO TRIAD also allows organizations to adapt and improve strategies faster through champion/challenger testing and systematic learning from operational results.

“To hang onto the best customers and attract new ones, lenders need advanced, precise, easy-to-use tools that let them look at customers as individuals, rather than simply accounts,” said David Lightfoot, FICO vice president of product management. “Unlike anything else in the marketplace, TRIAD 8.6 allows our clients to do just that. We continue to make the industry-leading solution even more valuable for our customers.”

FICO® TRIAD® Customer Manager 8.6 is designed for ease of implementation, with upgrades from versions 8.3, 8.4 or 8.5 expected to take as little as two weeks.
