Build your ideal origination portfolio.

Originating a new account is a critical decision affecting 80% of measurable risk throughout the life of an account, and it sets the stage for yield potential from the customer. FICO® Origination Manager delivers the power to make more precise, value-based decisions at the origination stage, enabling you to grow more profitable portfolios while managing customer-level risk. Adapt faster and reduce costs with business-user configurable templates that shorten the learning curve, equipping you to rapidly adjust to dynamic markets and regulatory changes.


With a rich feature set of advanced tools, FICO empowers business users to make faster, smarter, customer-focused decisions.

Implement new credit programs in days, not weeks

What if you could decrease time to decision and manual review by 50%? That’s the power of analytics-driven origination software. One solution supports all existing lines of business, while shortening the ramping time needed to launch new ones.

Quickly assess risk with pinpoint accuracy
