Assess credit risk

Assess ability to pay based on inquiries, payment behavior, and payment performance leveraging our alternative FCRA-compliant score

Solution Overview

Traditional credit scores are a standardized tool used to assess creditworthiness but are a lagging indicator, not providing the complete and most up-to-date view of a consumer’s true financial health. Incorporating alternative data like bank account and payment intelligence can provide additional value in assessing creditworthiness.
