Cooperative Processing Resources (CPR) is the industry’s premiere Debt Management System (DMS) provider, delivering IT and technical support to nearly half of the 63 credit counseling agencies – large and small – that comprise the cooperative that owns Dallas-based CPR.
Specifically, CPR provides centralized development and technical support for the advanced debt-management software on which these agencies run. In other words, CPR ensures that the software is running smoothly and securely for the agencies it serves. Its DMS Professional Suite product encompasses DMS Manager™, DMS Solutions™ and DMS Web™.
CPR has gradually come to depend on Sungard Availability Services to fulfill more of its infrastructure needs. Initially, in 2001, it chose Sungard AS to provide data-hosting and datamanagement services for its members’ database. Later, CPR extended its contract to cover all of its data processing and application hosting requirements.
More recently, CPR expanded its hosting partnership with Sungard AS to provide managed and hybrid IT services, migrating data from multiple colocation based servers to Enterprise Cloud Services in the fall, reducing its per-month costs by nearly 30 percent.
