Lenders can give underbanked customers access to credit with new risk-scoring data
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FactorTrust, The Alternative Credit Bureau, announced that eCash Software has now integrated its vast alternative credit database of underbanked consumer information to their software product for consumer financial lending. This opens the door to effectively evaluate the credit worthiness of millions of consumers.
“The seamless integration of FactorTrust with eCash Software makes for a superior and unique product to offer our customers,” says Scott Putnam, CEO of eSoftware Solutions and its product, eCash Software. “Risk scoring specifically for our market is very important to understand and FactorTrust provides that for us.”
Short-term lending, the auto sales industry and installment lending are just a few of the areas where the underbanked are held hostage to bad or insufficient data, where a lender is unable to make an educated decision about the creditworthiness of a consumer.
“Lenders are finding out that there are millions of valuable underbanked consumers if they can only be found,” says Greg Rable, CEO at FactorTrust. “Our data and the ability to score these consumers, whether they have thin or thick credit files, protects lenders while giving more consumers easier access to better credit products.”
FactorTrust’s proprietary alternative credit data is not available from the Big 3 bureaus enabling lenders to offer underbanked consumers the credit they deserve. The company offers analytics and risk scoring information to make informed decisions about the consumers they want. The company recently announced the launch of its LendProtect MLA Check which allows lenders to quickly verify covered borrowers and remain in compliance with the Department of Defense’s (DOD) Military Lending Act (MLA). Compliance with the MLA starts on Oct. 3, 2016.
Putnam continued, “It was great to have FactorTrust at our recent User Conference. They understand the special financial demands of our customers and bring a value that we and our customers trust. eCash Software is proud to work with this partner.”
