Software defined infrastructure underpins 1st Credit’s business operations

As one of the UK’s leading debt purchase and collection companies, 1st Credit has supported over 350,000 customers in reaching a debt-free future. To continue its mission to lead the sector with an ethical and compliant culture, the award-winning debt purchase company has selected Adapt to manage the technology that is core to furthering 1st Credit’s aims.

For 1st Credit, the key lies in its ability to analyse large and complex amounts of data using its proprietary application CreditSolve®. The 1st Credit team recognises that CreditSolve® and other key business systems and applications are better housed in an environment that offers additional efficiency and flexibility to support future growth.

Prior to appointing Adapt, 1st Credit operated through a longstanding ‘buy and build’ strategy. However, the recent growth in 1st Credit has allowed the business to strategically invest in IT and seek the best platform and expertise for future expansion.
