University Business’ readers nominated a variety of products that have made a positive difference at colleges and universities this year.
Lincoln, Neb. (Jan. 7, 2014) – Inceptia’s Default Prevention Outreach service has been selected as a University Business Readers’ Choice Top Product for 2013.
Now in its second year, the annual University Business Readers’ Choice Top Products award recognizes the most innovative products in higher education. This prestigious list informs university leaders and administrators about the products their colleagues around the country are using to help their schools excel.
The winners were selected by the editors of University Business from hundreds of nominations submitted by readers. Winners were selected based on both the quantity of nominations and the quality of the nominees’ testimony of the product.
The complete list of products has been announced online and in the January 2014 issue of University Business magazine.
With Inceptia’s performance-based Default Prevention Outreach service, expert counselors communicate with borrowers about options, including alternative repayment options, deferment and forbearance. Inceptia’s unique approach focuses each borrower on the immediate actions they will take to resolve their delinquency and long term decisions they need to follow through on to accomplish successful repayment. Targeting these borrowers while there is still an opportunity to resolve the issue not only helps borrowers, it also protects a school’s cohort default rate.
“The fact that we saw an increased response in the second year of this recognition program is a testament to the interest that higher ed leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies,” says JD Solomon, editorial director of University Business. “All of the honorees in our Top Products program should be very proud of their achievement.”
