Cass Information Systems is the leading provider of payment and information services for financial, accounts payable, transportation, logistics, utility and telecom expense management needs to major corporate clients.
They process bills that are provided in various formats (from electronic to manual), check against billing statements and execute the required financial transactions. Just in their telecom division, they receive 12,000 bills to process daily from their customers. They must then validate, analyze and pay these bills to telecom vendors while providing business intelligence on expense management back to the customers. The challenge was that many customers / vendors do not have EDI capability and deliver invoices in multiple ways such as file transfer, pdf, paper bills, etc. They needed a way to connect to the customers' telecom vendor applications, extract the billing information out of Web-based information, XML, and PDF files and upload the data to their SQL database. Other divisions providing services for Utility and Transportation bills faced similar challenges.
The Denodo solution enabled them to automate the extraction of the data, validate, normalize and integrate the data in disparate formats so that the data could be fed into the CASS payment systems for proper handling. The new process resulted in significant reduction in time and required labor as well as creating more opportunities for business expansion through automation.

Reintegra has specialized in collection management since 1999, and needed to automate their search process for information regarding debtors, in particular when trying to locate untraceable contacts. This task is accelerated by identifying valid telephone numbers and enabling direct contact. Up until the implementation of Denodo Data Virtualization, this task was carried out by Reintegra agents by manually navigating through countless screens and directories, resulting in significant resource investment, both in time and money.
Given that speed of tracking is one of the main factors in debt recovery, the decision to use Denodo was taken to significantly speed up the search process of finding untraceables using public sources via the Internet.
Using Denodo Data Virtualization, Reintegra has increased its debt collection rate by 5% and improved the productivity of its search processes x40, increasing its agents´ capacity allowing them to process over 800 files and hour from an original 15.
Reintegra is further evaluating the use of Denodo Data Virtualization for locating information across several internal applications and databases, with the aim of eliminating the significant amount of time currently spent locating internal information.

The process included entering the same information into multiple applications making the process very time consuming.

In Phone House´s retail model, completing customer phone activations or migrations in the minimum time, with no errors and at the lowest possible cost is key to customer satisfaction and its revenue growth.
