Start Making Smart Decisions Across The Business Lifecycle

October 26, 2018 at 11:46 AM

 

Rick is a risk manager and is always asking himself: "Who should I lend to?" and "How much can they afford?".

Fran is a financial manager and often has to deal with account management issues like the expected credit losses. 

While Mary finds herself in customer engagement and worries about who she should target and what channels she should use. 

And then there is Cole, a collections manager trying to figure out what collections action he should take next. 

Looks like this team could do with some help.
