TransUnion to Deploy Austin Logistics' Collection Software Solutions

    Move Brings Leading Collections and Treatment Optimization Solutions to
    Canadian Marketplace

    TORONTO and AUSTIN, Texas, April 10 /CNW/ -- TransUnion and Austin
Logistics today announced TransUnion will offer Austin Logistics patented
OnQ(TM) and CallTech(TM) Collections Optimization solutions to its commercial
customer base. In this preferred provider agreement, TransUnion will host the
applications as a managed service and make the solutions readily available to
its Canadian customers.
    In addition, TransUnion also will integrate both the industry leading
ActionSelect treatment optimization solution and Valeo(TM), the company's
broadly patented inbound call center value routing solution.  By combining
TransUnion's credit data with Austin Logistics' call center management
software, collection organizations can better focus their resources on the
accounts most likely to deliver the greatest return.
    "To give our customers the ability to make better business decisions with
advanced decisioning, comprehensive data and modeling was the goal of this
joint venture," said TransUnion's Derrick Breau, vice president sales and
marketing. "OnQ and CallTech, market leading solutions, coupled with the depth
of TransUnion's data and modeling capabilities, will help our customers
achieve greater efficiencies and bottom line improvements."
    This move is the first deliverable in a strategic partnership between the
two companies to help Canadian companies positively affect profitability by
reducing both collection and treatment costs as well as charge-offs and risk
throughout the credit lifecycle.
    "Allying with TransUnion, one of Canada's most trusted credit information
companies is a cornerstone in our market entry into Canada," said Lee E.
Martin, Canada General Manager, at Austin Logistics. "The services they
provide and the solutions we offer are a great combination to help customers
in Canada get the most benefit from their technology spend around collections
and risk."
