Monetrics Partners with Fiserv LeMans to Automate Credit Underwriting Process: Collaboration to Deliver New Portfolio Management Technology to Automotive Finance Industry

(PRWEB) June 8, 2003

King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and Beverly, Massachusetts, June 6, 2003– Fiserv Inc. (Nasdaq: FISV) and Monetrics announced plans to develop a joint interface, tying the power of the unique, automated Monetrics Decision Engine to the automotive finance industry’s foremost portfolio management software from Fiserv LeMans. The combination will enhance Fiserv LeMans’ existing credit scoring capabilities to provide an integrated, comprehensive analysis of a borrower’s total default risk.

“The partnership between Monetrics and Fiserv LeMans will deliver the technology to automate and expedite the credit underwriting and credit decision processes, including optimizing portfolio collections management,” said Kevin Collins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fiserv LeMans. “Clients of both companies will benefit from this new portfolio management tool.”

Decision Engine Technology

Monetrics Decision Engine technology utilizes patent pending ‘relational decisioning’ that dramatically increases the automation rate. The technology emulates the human decision-making process and enables complex loan approvals for difficult applications without sacrificing automation. This new technology will permit Fiserv LeMans clients to evaluate and analyze multiple risk factors consistently in every loan application decision.

VehicleLinQ

Through its VehicleLinQ product suite, Fiserv LeMans provides a seamlessly integrated set of solutions for automotive finance, from contract origination through termination and resale. Its Credit Processing System (CPS) is the gateway to the VehicleLinQ solution, automating the front-end process from application entry to discounting. Using CPS and the other VehicleLinQ components, organizations can manage a portfolio from credit processing and booking to

collections, including customer service, title management, inventory tracking, auction sales, collection of end of term and credit loss recoveries. The systems include management-defined queuing capabilities and enable universal memos (memos are stored in one location and are available to all systems) for retail, lease and balloon note accounts.
