IC Systems was founded in 1938, and this year it proudly celebrates 80 years in business. It is a family run business, and it was originally founded by Jack and Ruth Erickson. For many of those years, the company was located in Saint Paul, MN until the offices were moved to Vadnais Heights in 1982.
The company manages accounts receivables for their clients. The husband and wife team started with only a few clients in the early days. They worked together building the business until 1952, when Jack passed away. Ruth Erickson then became the driving force in her commitment to continuing the business. The company had grown over the years due to their hard work and commitment. She became the President of IC Systems after her husband’s death. The company handles the collection activities for past due accounts. Ruth Erickson was determined to lead the company as it had always been run in terms of offering the highest level of ethical and honest business standards. She never wavered from her core values, and the company was thriving under her leadership.
IC Systems is one of the leaders in the accounts receivable industry today. The company utilizes state of the art equipment and software that is crucial in the function of result driven collection activities. They are known as innovators in the industry, and they were amongst the first to computerize their accounts receivable business. The collection efforts are handled by fully trained representatives who know how to get the job done with integrity. From the moment a collection letter or call is initiated, the company is bound by rigorous industry standards and their own.
Today it is the son of Jack and Ruth, John Ericsson, Jr. who leads the family business as capably as his parents did before him. The family commitment to the community of being the trusted name in accounts receivables management remains as strong today as it did 80 years ago. For the third time, IC Systems was recognized for their ethical business practices as a finalist of the highly respected BBB Torch Awards for ethics.
