Namely Partnership Delivers Automated Verification Benefits to More SMBs

A new integration with Namely, one of the leading HR platforms for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), is the latest step by Equifax Workforce Solutions to put the power of The Work NumberⓇ database in service to more small  and medium organizations and their employees.  Namely customers can now enjoy streamlined, automated transfer of information to credentialled verifiers requesting employment and income data for consumer decisions on behalf of their employees.

Namely CEO Larry Dunivan shared, “Employment and income verifications are vital to employees, and a manual approach can slow down progress at critical moments in their life. Considered a gold standard for verifications, Namely’s partnership with The Work Number will help our clients adopt a digital process that leverages timely and consistent employment and income information to help speed up verifier decisions for their employees.”

Equifax maintains a powerful suite of data insights including The Work Number database, which is the industry-leading, centralized commercial repository of income and employment information in the U.S. More than one million employers nationwide appreciate the reduction in verification tasks and the privacy that automated verifications offer. At the same time, their employees benefit from no longer having the cumbersome process of tracking down and providing pay stubs to lenders, landlords and social service agencies. 

On any given day, more than half a million verification requests are handled quickly through The Work Number database, helping eliminate the need for manual processes and often supporting faster decisions for consumers. As businesses continue to move further into digital and remote realities, leveraging technology to help complete verifications can assist in streamlining both the employer and the employee experience. 

“Namely has a vision for delivering flexible, modern HR software solutions that help small and medium businesses to be efficient and focused on growth,” said Joe Muchnick, SVP of Alliances for Equifax Workforce Solutions. “This partnership is a natural alignment of technologies designed to help streamline HR tasks while also helping employees access more efficient credit and benefit decisions.”

The Namely integration was implemented as part of the Equifax Workforce Solutions “Connector Strategy” which deploys API connector technology to help accelerate access to automated verifications for employers while quickly transferring  the necessary data into The Work Number Database.  This approach is designed to help maximize consumer opportunities and enable key feature functionality to activate more seamless within employer and payroll provider platforms.
