Credit Cards

Having more relevant and timely data allows credit card companies to better manage their portfolio of accounts by mitigating losses and maximizing profits.



Better analytics and modeling derived from recent consumer tradeline data helps mobile carriers steer appropriate consumers to higher yielding post-paid services without exposure to unacceptable risk.
