Each case can be managed from its own page, where all the pertaining data is collected in one place. All of the important details of the case are available to be changed and viewed. Add and manage steps, actions, status history, notes, sub cases, communications and much more from this section.

Each Case contains Various sections which gives the organization complete record of a file. Sections such as case details, subjects, address, financials, steps, actions, status history, notes, attachments, transactions and communication with client.
The Financial section indicates the total debt amount for a case. A user can select the debt currency from the drop down list available and cases can have different currencies. However to provide an accurate total debt amount of all cases on the Investigation Software, a common currency for the Collection system can be chosen. This will ensure that when the system summarises all cases, each debt amount is converted to a single chosen currency and the total is a true reflection of all the debt amounts. If the currencies were not converted, the total debt will only be a numerical addition of all debt figures. Through a link with the XE Website, the exchange rate is updated and currency is converted automatically on a daily basis.
