AKUVO Adds Another: FAIRWINDS Signs on to Aperture
Malvern, Pa AKUVO, a technology organization specializing in credit risk and delinquency management, has announced the addition of Orlando, Fla.-based FAIRWINDS to its rapidly growing list of Aperture clients.
The $4.6B FAIRWINDS will replace its existing collection management system with Aperture in order to drive more personalized and effective collection strategies through the use of data and behavioral analytics.
Additionally, the credit union was seeking a solution that could support both long-term growth goals and day-to-day collection efforts. After evaluating Aperture, FAIRWINDS was impressed with its ability to immediately provide an exceptional collections experience through the recommendation of practical and helpful payment solutions. The credit union said it also appreciated the AKUVO platform’s ability to manage specialty processes like bankruptcy, repossession and charge offs for accounts that have unique circumstances or become uncollectable.
“At Fairwinds, our 223,000 members and their families are our biggest priority,” commented Bryan Meizinger, SVP – Lending at FAIRWINDS. “Implementing Aperture will give us greater visibility into member behavior and, in turn, allow us to make our internal processes more efficient and offer better solutions to help members get back on track when they have fallen behind on payments.”
“In a financial market full of twists and turns, it is so important that credit unions have access to technology that can adapt quickly while at the same time keeping the collection experience efficient and positive for members and collectors,” said Steve Castagna, Chief Revenue and Operations Officer of AKUVO. “We are thrilled that FAIRWINDS has put their trust in AKUVO, and we look forward to supporting its growth now and in the future.”

Built by a team of individuals, each with more than 20 years’ experience, the company takes a visionary, behavior-based approach to credit risk and delinquency management through its products and consulting services.
