TROY, Mich., -– Bryan Albertson, chief information officer at TECH LOCK, and Jim Warner, chief technology and security officer at State Collection Service, will address how to build IT into a competitive strength at ACA International’s Convention & Expo. The session is scheduled for 11 a.m. PDT, Monday, July 17.  

“Developing IT Into a Competitive Business Advantage,” will focus on State Collection Service and the success the Madison, Wis.-based agency achieved by conducting a comprehensive IT assessment. The IT assessment examines systems infrastructure and architecture, application platforms, staff efficiencies, data security, DR capabilities, budget alignment and overall IT strategy.

The agency had doubled in size in less than five years, creating all the opportunities and challenges generated by tremendous growth. Through this process, the organization still improved its data security, reduced risk and generated dramatic cost savings.

Accounts receivable management companies face ongoing threats from hackers and others with malicious intent. Regulatory requirements also continue to rise. The goal in sharing how State Collection Service met these challenges is to help other organizations better understand how to reshape IT from an escalating cost center into a competitive advantage.
