Digital Matrix Systems, Inc. (DMS), a leading risk management solution provider, today announced a partnership with Clarity Services, Inc. (Clarity) to provide mutual clients with access to Clarity Services’ subprime consumer data solutions through DMS’s Data Access Point™. Clearwater, Florida-based Clarity Services is the subprime industry’s largest credit reporting agency, with nearly 60 million consumer identities.
By choosing to leverage alternative data sources in addition to traditional credit data, financial services companies can more effectively evaluate applicants. The rising occurrence of fraudulent activity including consumer loan stacking has a profound impact on the bottom line. The ability to maintain compliance while minimizing the impact of these consumer activities can be achieved through a balanced mix of data that goes beyond the limits of traditional credit reports.
Through this partnership, approved companies can quickly integrate Clarity’s suite of solutions for underwriting, fraud detection, regulatory compliance, and risk management, including:
Clear Inquiry™ – help eliminate consumers that are less than ideal with predictive pre-validation flags paired with consumer data
Clear Fraud™ – verify consumer identity and identify those that are unlikely to pay due to fraudulent intentions
Clear Bank Behavior™ – expand visibility into both current and historical five-year bank account usage patterns
Clear Credit Attributes™ – gain complete visibility into a consumer’s credit inquiry history, as well as loan performance history, payment obligation and debt ratio
Clear Ability to Pay™ – quickly evaluate an applicant’s ability to repay through innovative real-time reporting
Temporary Account Record – detect the loan an applicant recently received to avoid exposure to potential loan stacking
“DMS is known as a leader in the space that shares our passion for innovation,” said Tim Ranney, Clarity president and chief executive officer. “By combining Clarity data and DMS’s expertise, we look forward to providing powerful solutions to our shared customers.”
“We are pleased to announce our partnership with Clarity Services,” said David Graves, DMS executive vice president. “Their portfolio of consumer data is a great addition to the sources we currently provide, and I anticipate that it will be of significant value to our clients.”
