“Rent-to-Own customers have had credit building at the top of their list for quite some time,” said Tony Farrell, CEO of PTS Financial. “eCredable has developed an innovative approach to using the on-time payment the consumer makes to the Rent-to-Own business to build a credit score they can use to qualify for products like auto loans and home loans. This is a big win for many of these consumers who may be credit challenged. It’s also a big win for the Rent-to-Own company – the consumer has a real incentive to make their monthly payments on time, now that their payment is being shared with a Credit Reporting Agency.”

Launched in 2009, eCredable allows creditors to comply with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), which requires any creditor using credit related information to assess the creditworthiness of an individual to consider any similar payment information the consumer puts forth to demonstrate their creditworthiness. eCredable’s credit information gathering product allows consumers to record their monthly bill payment accounts, monitor their progress towards their AMP Credit Rating® goal with AMP Rate Watch®, request verification of their payment history, and create a verified AMP Credit Report® that meets all financial industry standards.
