Credit scores aren’t fair or reliable.
Now they don’t have to be.
A new alternative to traditional credit scores.
What we do
Bank transaction data is beginning to replace traditional credit scores. This data (after deep analysis, pattern recognition and categorisation) offers a holistic and up-to-date picture of each customer’s financial position, lifestyle and existing commitments - enabling you to make smarter lending decisions and gain the competitive edge.
More certainty, less risk.
How it works
AccountScore takes raw data from its partners at Yodlee, and carries out a three-stage process in order to produce data which can be easily utilised and understood.
The first pass on Yodlee’s data repairs chronological ambiguities and duplicate transactions; then splits out known vendor names, card details and other additional information into distinct fields.
The next step matches each and every transaction through our Categorisation engine, which finds matches from a database of well over 2 million keywords - applying detailed and accurate categories and subcategories to each row.
Finally, patterns within the data are identified, enabling accurate disposable income calculations to take into account expected expenses, and alerting to possible missed payments.
What we deliver
After the above data transformation, the following information is readily accessible, via our API or your own web-portal.
Multiple bank accounts, Recurring Outgoings, Debit Card Analysis, Reversals and Bank Charges, Income Summary, Financial Services, Category Breakdown, Recent Transactions and Balance Tracking.
SafetyNet Credit - a case study
SafetyNet Credit is a leading credit facility - with a difference. AccountScore enables SafetyNet Credit to be smarter and more flexible than its alternatives.
Not only does SafetyNet Credit utilise AccountScore to make responsible and defensible lending decisions, it also stands out from the crowd with unique features such as smarter borrowing and automatic repayments, made possible with its AccountScore integration.
Customers can reborrow without reapplying thanks to an up-to-date affordability assessment always available from AccountScore.
Convenient automatic repayments are triggered when AccountScore detects an appropriate balance increase.
Triggered by the AccountScore’s balance alerts when the customer’s balance goes under a pre-agreed level - automatically extending a short-term loan to cover their account.
Money Management Tools
SafetyNet Credit shares a balance history graph and spending data with its customers, to help them to understand their finances - all powered by AccountScore.
