Educational Testing Service (ETS), the $1.3 billion company known for its SAT and GRE tests, had a problem: 20% of the checks sent in with applications were bouncing, and ETS was finding out too late to stop applicants from taking the tests and getting their results.

Four proposed end-to-end solutions that didn’t work. “They tried to fit ETS into a packaged solution, but none of them could tie a check back to our application,” Budd says.
