Fair Isaac Corporation, a provider of analytics and decision technology, announced that the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and State of Kansas are tapping its Fair Isaac Blaze Advisor rules management technology to streamline business processes and enforce legislation. Blaze Advisor is a leading software package that allows design, deployment, execution and maintenance of business rules and policies as part of an automated business application.

The California DMV faces the need to standardize, consolidate and centralize the task of calculating vehicle registration fees in systems at the DMV headquarters in Sacramento and at 170 DMV field offices distributed throughout the state. Utilizing a Fair Isaac rules-based solution for its vehicle registration (VR) fee transactions for vessels, new business rules support for state-mandated laws regarding VR fee penalties can easily be updated with new legislative changes. With a reengineered VR fee system incorporating Fair Isaac's Blaze Advisor business rules technology, the project facilitates the design and transition to a system that supports the department's immediate and future business needs, while improving the quality of products and services the DMV offers to its customers.

Rules management systems also provide benefits for managing public and social services. As part of the Lower Income Energy Assistance Program, the State of Kansas annually processes approximately 50,000 applications for financial assistance with energy costs. With numerous regional offices, the state lacked the centralized control needed to keep track of and enforce adjustments based on funding changes and program policies. Now, with a Blaze Advisor rules-based system, the department projects benefits that include the ability to process more applications for assistance without adding staff, more accurate assignment of benefits, and providing more convenience for its constituents by letting them use automated self-service channels such as the Web at any hour of the day.
