Product Overview

Lenders are faced with a variety of challenges - from assessing risk on underbanked consumers to verifying the identification of credit applicants. But 91% of U.S. consumers have at least one utility or telco account, and more than half are willing to share this data for loan approval consideration.*

Payment Insights offers a consumer-permissioned solution to provide lenders with access to utility and telco data - so you can gain a more comprehensive view of consumers' financial picture and enhance lending decisions.
