When a cable operator rents a set-top box to a customer, it’s essentially an unsecured loan—and that’s a lot of trust, especially in the digital age.

In real time, SW generates a score CSRs can use to determine the deposit a customer must pay. It’s especially helpful for small and mid-size ops.

Another fan: NCTC. And that’s good enough for us.
