Experian is one of the world’s largest credit information databases and forms the basis of many credit checks whenever a member of the public comes to secure credit of any variety. Based in Dublin, Experian has operational headquarters in Nottingham, in California and in Sao Paulo in Brazil. From there they employ 17000 people who compile thousands of lists of data with regards to how much money individuals owe, to whom and how much more they can afford to borrow. Experian has recently developed a new system, entitled ExPin, with the objective of assisting third part companies in making the decision as to whether to lend more money or not.
ExPin works by compiling data from Experian’s already considerable database, but with a focus on only the customers of the client. The ExPin service will name all the products and services that the customer is already paying for and pass this information on to the Experian client. This information will then prove invaluable for the client, as they can learn all they need to know about a customer to form the basis of a credit decision. ExPin is constantly updated; ensuring that it stays as relevant as possible and each client can quickly access the correct information at the time of access. Clients of Experian will then benefit from greater confidence that the information they receive is as accurate as possible. ExPin will take a lot of hassle out of credit decisions by providing quantitative data for the client.
Experian are also then able to offer further services to their clients who use ExPin, as their needs will be processed by ExPin and returned to the business services team at Experian. All the while, clients will be able to remain ahead of their competitors by using the most relevant information possible.
In a recent move, Wescot Credit Services, a debt recovery agency based in Glasgow and across the UK has signed up to Experian’s ExPin service. This multi million pound decision has proved invaluable to the debt collection company, as they have been able to access information on customers quickly and assess how much they are actually able to pay back. ExPin has already improved Wescot’s debt recovery speed and this translates to stronger relations to their client base as their costs are reduced.
