Cumming, GA (PRWEB) October 23, 2007
ClearStar.net, a leading information services provider for the background, employment and tenant screening industry, announced today the formation of a partnership with SharperLending LLC, technology provider of secure, Web-based lending management platforms. Under terms of the agreement, SharperLending will provide ClearStar.net with real time gateway access to data from all three credit bureaus and its proprietary suite of service offerings in standard MISMO XML format.
"Flexibility and security of credit related data is critical to the decision making capability in background screening and gives us more flexibility to deliver services that ensure that our clients maintain their competitive edge," explained R.J. Vale, CEO of ClearStar.net. "Now that we can parse and measure the data, we will be able to deliver a tri-merged credit report and bundle the credit data with other data elements to provide total scoring models. ClearStar.net also gains the ability to further analyze data according to industry-specific business rules to more effectively present information in a variety of graphical formats.
"This relationship with ClearStar.net is important because it allows us to reach deep into the tenant and employment screening space -- an area where secure access to credit information is highly valued -- and begin servicing established industry providers with years of experience in their market," said Dave Black, President and CEO of SharperLending, LLC.
The partnership comes as a culmination of combined development efforts to build an open architecture gateway based on their common platform of Microsoft .NET and web services.
"We feel that this is an especially effective strategic partnership because both of our companies have demonstrated their commitment to taking privacy, security and compliance to the highest levels within our industries," stated Black.
"There is velocity in the partnership because we speak the same language with the same understanding of security requirements and certifications," continued Vale. "We can now move any service through our interface that SharperLending can offer and we can draw on their well established integrity and core competency to guide us in evolving the use of credit services to add value to our customers."
