Base scoring on analysis of rich pooled data
SBSS℠ is based on a partnership with FICO clients, who contribute data used to build ever more powerful models. As clients have used these models and increased their portfolio sizes, they've acquired and shared new, richer data with FICO.
Variable models - validated for term loans, line of credit transactions and commercial cards up to US$1M.
Client-configured rules reflect each institution's lending policies in data pulls from major consumer and commercial data sources.
Policy rule definitions allow institutions to automatically approve, decline or flag applications for review.
Cloud based deployment can get institutions up and running in several weeks with little up-front investment.
