With help from Experian’s tracing solutions, we were able to reduce our ‘goneaways’ back book and reunite more of our customers with funds owed to them. This solution helps us work towards our original purpose of helping people take responsibility for their future and achieve a lifetime of financial security. The communication with Experian throughout the project was fantastic and we’re pleased with the results.

Functionality that delivers your goals

How Affordability Passport works
The account information is analysed by our CaaS®,
automated transaction engine - which interprets
raw account information and categorises this into
186 blocks of income and expenditure, through our
CaaS machine learning algorithms. The income and
expenditure report can be delivered alongside the
individuals credit file providing a complete view of
their financial circumstances.
Once the data is submitted the organisation will be
notified via email or web hook that it is available for
review, data delivery takes as little as 800
milliseconds. The customer and provider journey
can be accessed through the Experian’s portal or
directly integrated into your online platform, using
our secure URLs or RESTful APIs.
