FactorTrust and Megasys Inc. Innovate to Uncover Potential Qualified Borrowers Not Appearing in Traditional Bureau Data

Collaboration enables lenders to safely grow their portfolio and
increase their reach to untapped underbanked consumers

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FactorTrust,
The Alternative Credit Bureau, announced today increased underwriting
capabilities offered to lenders by combining its ability to accurately
mine and score underbanked consumers with Megasys Inc.’s integrated
credit data and underwriting service software. Lenders now have an
enhanced opportunity to review a consumer’s creditworthiness and ability
to repay with real-time, automated decisioning tools like never before.

“By collaborating with Megasys Inc., we are helping them deliver to
their lenders a powerful new window into a large population of consumers
who are worthy of credit but often invisible through the lens of
traditional bureau data and scoring,” says Greg Rable, CEO at
FactorTrust. “The result is a cost-effective way to broaden a lender’s
base while minimizing the risk of doing so.”

The auto sales industry and installment lending are just two 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. FactorTrust incorporates over 200
million loan transaction records tracked in real-time to provide a much
more accurate picture of an underbanked consumer’s ability to borrow and
repay loans.

“The addition of FactorTrust alternative credit data to our Omega
Originations service is helping us to offer an even more accurate view
into pre-approvals and auto-declines that will in turn save lenders
money,” says Theo Austin, President and COO at Megasys Inc. “Partnering
with FactorTrust opens the door to an even larger universe of consumers
who have the means to repay loans, which will help lenders cut costs and
help them grow revenues simultaneously.”
