Columbia Ultimate, an expert in technology and integrated solutions for the collections industry, announced today its 2014 Art of Success conference will be held Sept. 15-19 at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront in Portland, Oregon.

This year’s conference theme is “Advance,” which frames the event around growing regulatory pressures and the need for sound compliance solutions, as well as technological enhancements developed by Columbia Ultimate to drive business objectives.

“We know the challenges that face the accounts receivable industry—particularly the need to keep pace with policy and compliance changes that impact collections,” said Fred Houston, president and CEO of Columbia Ultimate. “We see the Art of Success as an opportunity to share our compliance expertise and best practices, and hear from our clients about what they face each day.”

The five-day conference brings together industry professionals from collection agencies, healthcare and government organizations to establish and build relationships and learn about compliance strategies through content-rich sessions including:

  • A complete compliance track

  • Sessions focusing on compliance management

  • Round table sessions

Additionally, Columbia Ultimate executives will provide an “executive update” on the company and important ARM industry trends. The conference will conclude with two days of hands-on technical training on important software features, which are included with registration.
