Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Angoss Software Corporation (Angoss) today announced ScorecardBUILDER™, a robust, end-to-end, scorecard building product which enables credit risk analysts to build and deploy precise, industry-compliant scorecards faster by automating time-consuming, manual steps. Angoss ScorecardBUILDER product provides analysts with the ability to create high quality credit scorecards as a seamless step in their analytics workflows, from data profiling and segmentation through predictive modeling and scorecard building to strategy design and deployment.
The new Angoss ScorecardBUILDER product enables risk professionals to develop scorecards more efficiently with automated workflow. Its unique and powerful workflow for building, displaying, refreshing and reusing scorecard development workflows, coupled with a user friendly visual representation that enables the creation of a scorecard workflow in minutes, providing instant documentation and eliminating the need to write code.
ScorecardBUILDER enables efficient analysis of thousands of candidate predictors in credit data sets - for easy selection of the most predictive, influential variables. Visual exploration of variables with the Characteristic Analysis wizard, Angoss industry-leading Decision Trees, and various charts and tables, allows users to see and understand relationships and behaviours - quickly providing accurate assessments to support variable reduction. Multiple Measures of Predictive Power allow users to effortlessly sift through variables and in a matter of minutes select the most predictive variables to use in scorecard development.
With four reject inference methods, Angoss ScorecardBUILDER produces the most accurate and realistic performance of credit scoring models to predict the behavior of the total population. Ultimately, this enables lending and credit organizations to maximize their business growth by optimizing the risks and rewards for individual lending decisions.
Angoss ScorecardBUILDER’s flexible and intelligent Weight of Evidence Optimizer (WOE) reduces time spent on manual coarse classing and binning by up to 50%. Automating the coarse classing process speeds up the time-consuming task of optimizing predictive variable bins improving stability and accuracy of the scorecard. The flexible WOE Optimizer allows users to optimize all variables automatically with the click of a button, or by selecting individual variables of choice. The user-friendly interface displays a side by side view of a visual Decision Tree Editor, variable mapping table and line chart.
Seamless development and deployment of customer strategies is quick and easy from within ScorecardBUILDER with Angoss Strategy Trees (patent pending) - an intuitive, visual and collaborative approach for building and deploying predictive strategies. Users are provided with the ability to combine scorecards with user-defined business rules and key performance indicators in order to produce highly targeted lists to which treatments such as credit limit, collections and marketing campaign activities can be applied. Predictive strategies resulting from the combination of scorecard models and business rules yield significant user and organizational benefits at each stage of the credit lifecycle process.
“With our latest scorecard product,” said Martin Galligan, President and CEO of Angoss, “Angoss is addressing the demand for efficient, best-in-class credit scorecard technology to build, evaluate and deploy risk strategies.
