Seven hundred schools like yours have turned to us for their default management needs. The average rate for these schools is now 10.2%. It is important to note the average rate for these same schools would be above 30% had they not used the WISS default reduction service. In 20 years of service we have never had a school sanctioned for a high default rate. No other default management service can come close to this level of success.
