Coming on the heels of Automotive Intelligence Council member MBSi Corp. making a move involving the firm, Recovery Industry Services Co. (RISC) announced it has joined forces with recently acquired Vendor Transparency Solutions (VTS) to unite compliance services and provide comprehensive vendor vetting, lot inspection and education services to the collateral recovery industry.
For years as independent companies, RISC and VTS stressed that they have advocated for a more professional repossession industry. By integrating the compliance solutions, RISC insisted that it now offers the best of both companies to the industry.
“We are proud to partner with RISC to provide a repossession training and vetting solution that has been embraced by both vendors and lenders, and we thank those who have supported our efforts,” said Max Pineiro, president of Vendor Transparency Solutions.
“With the recent acquisition of the VTS software platform, we looked to partner with the industry standard CARS program to add value to the VTS training curriculum and vetting services. Additionally, the involvement of Hudson Cook solidifies it as the industry standard,” Pineiro continue.
In the weeks and months ahead, RISC will announce new product offerings that combine the best of RISC and VTS curriculum and technology solutions.
“With this partnership, we continue to work towards improvement and unification of the industry,” RISC chief executive officer Stamatis Ferarolis said.
“It will take some time to integrate our curriculum and vetting services, but we believe together we now deliver the only comprehensive compliance and education solution to the collateral recovery industry,” Ferarolis went on to say.
