Rugby, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 09, 2009 -- Experian, the global information services company, has announced that LendProtect UK Limited will implement Bank Wizard Absolute - Experianâs real-time bank account verification service.
LendProtect provides credit risk management and identity verification services for short term consumer lenders. The deal with Experian will see LendProtect integrating Bank Wizard Absolute to enhance its range of services.
Greg Rable, Chief Executive Officer of LendProtectâs parent company FactorTrust Inc, said: "We believe the addition of Bank Wizard Absolute to our existing platform provides the best automated, real-time, bank account verification service specifically tailored for short-term consumer lenders."
Jim Conning, Managing Director at Experian Payments, commented: "LendProtect UK selected Bank Wizard Absolute, due to its ability to confirm the connection between the loan applicant and the bank account details they have provided. Until now, a real-time electronic check on bank account ownership has not been possible and lenders had to either increase their exposure to risk by not tying bank account ownership to a customerâs identity or reduce their customer acquisition rates by requesting paper and manual proofs of bank account ownership. Bank Wizard Absolute will play a key role in enabling LendProtect UK to offer the lowest risk loan application assessment platform to their customers with the highest possible conversion and straight through processing rates."
Bank Wizard Absolute extends the capability of Experian's widely used Bank Wizard and is the only verification service that enables businesses to make the connection between customers and their bank account details in near real-time. By reducing failed transactions and improving Straight-Through-Processing rates Bank Wizard Absolute can dramatically improve profitability and customer service and help to minimise overall payment and direct debit fraud.
