ATLANTA, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Equifax Inc. (NYSE : EFX ), a global information solutions company, today announced that CRIF Synergy's CREDICHECK solution for credit data access will provide TotalView™ from Equifax in order to help offer a wider range of borrower insights to its customers.
For lenders, assessing a customer's capacity to borrow often requires manual collection of data, which can be time-consuming and costly. Additionally, in order to balance risk, growth and profitability, lenders must rely on a broad range of data sources – as opposed to just the credit file – when implementing acquisition programs.
"TotalView leverages a single channel to provide a more seamless delivery method for multiple data sources," said Joy Wilder Lybeer, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Alliances at Equifax. "We are excited to bring this capability to CRIF Synergy so they can help their customers access a more complete view of a borrower's financial status, enabling better optimization of growth and risk decisioning."
Robert Fite, Vice President at CRIF Synergy says, "By integrating TotalView into our loan origination and data retrieval software technology, our customers will be able to more efficiently and effectively access a broader set of information for use in their loan origination processes, ultimately supporting more insight and more informed decisions."
TotalView was introduced in late 2014, and offers a single point of access to a wider range of borrower insights and capabilities including:
- Enhanced credit information, including granular trade line data, expanded payment information, and more precise dates and additional address records;
- Access to property data and analytics, including insights on property ownership and estimated equity and value;
- Income and employment verification;
- Automated decisioning, allowing for the application of unique rules to drive consistent, confident decisions and actions; and
- Fraud detection to help reduce risk.
Efficiency and strong risk management are critical to CRIF Synergy lending customers, and TotalView is expected to help support the company's continued growth among its multi-channel customer base.
