Welcome to the Summer 2015 edition of our briefing for our Local Authority clients.
Focusing on the Local Authority Forum held in Edinburgh at the end of May 2015, we were delighted that Judith Hartshorne, DWP, Kelly Jones, Grant Thornton and Chris Batt from the Callcredit Information Group could all participate in this Forum.
Each of guest presenters delivered a very informative presentation with a range of insights, discussions points and ideas on how to improve collection performance and maximise revenues in the year ahead.
