Commenting on the collaboration, Ronald Reurink, Global IT Mature & Emerging Markets & Scandinavia at Intrum, said: “We continuously strive to improve how to best support our business clients and consumers alike and are increasing our focus on operational excellence – to ensure our resources and tools are effective and efficient. Cognizant is helping Intrum to develop world class technology platforms to provide a seamless and friendly customer support.”

According to Reurink, the upgrade from the existing technology platform will help Intrum reduce total cost-of-ownership, accelerate modernisation of its integration platform, and build an agile digital services team to better manage customer needs.

The company further expects to embrace a more data driven way of working, with insights set to benefit sales and business development teams as well. “With our enhanced technology capabilities, we hope to leverage insights to be able to identify newer, workable debt servicing opportunities with more possibility to upsell or cross-sell additional offerings.”

Mats Johard, Country Manager for Sweden at Cognizant, said: “We are delighted to be working with Intrum to help them accelerate their modernisation with a new core digital system.”
