Case Study: Delivering Collections Information through Microsoft BI (by Rowland Gosling, I.C. System) – Got debt? Well I.C. System knows all about this and they’ve been helping clients for over 70 years collect on it. I.C. System is one of the largest receivables management companies in the United States with 800 employees spread across four locations. I.C. System has been able to remain successful over the tough economic times because of their technological advancements in this very competitive, tightly regulated market. With the power of Microsoft business intelligence tools they are able to access, interact, and visualize their data in a fast and intuitive way. We will go over the background of how I.C. System has evolved over the years, talk about the terabytes of data they consume, go over their BI delivery capabilities, and discuss what lies ahead for them.
