With every system launch, SubscriberWise offers a training module that includes specific information about credit reports and FICO scores
Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
SubscriberWise, the nation’s first issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry, announced today the company president is applauding the additional FICO score versions now available to consumers at myFICO.com.
“Credit scores drive many decisions,” said David Howe, president and founder of SubscriberWise. “And this fact is profoundly true today as more and more organizations rely on industry-specific credit scores for underwriting and regulatory compliance. FICO’s decision to make additional FICO score versions available to consumers is a move that SubscriberWise strongly supports.”
“With every system launch, SubscriberWise offers a training module that includes specific information about credit reports and FICO scores,” continued Howe. “This information is designed exclusively for the customer service agents, managers, and others who will interact with the technology everyday. And like FICO, SubscriberWise is committed to providing and expanding credit education and information. Its information that empowers not only our member operators but also the customers they serve,” Howe emphasized.
According to FICO, anyone who buys a product with a base FICO Score 8 from myFICO.com now also receives up to 10 additional FICO Score versions — five based upon Equifax data and five based upon Experian data. These include prior versions of the base FICO Score, as well as industry-specific FICO Score versions for auto and credit card lending decisions. An additional five FICO Score versions based upon TransUnion data will be available to myFICO customers in the coming weeks
“While FICO Score 8 is the most widely used credit score in America, the thousands of lenders using FICO Scores also can use different versions for particular credit risk decisions,” said Jim Wehmann, executive vice president for Scores at FICO. “By making these scores available along with FICO Score 8, we have created the most complete consumer credit score product ever available, and set a new standard for consumer empowerment. Consumers should accept no less.”
“I’m anticipating that FICO will soon add its latest – and most important – FICO 9 score to the mix,” continued Howe. “Consumer access to FICO 9 scores would provide individuals suffering under medical debt and/or paid collections a potentially – and perhaps dramatically – more favorable score. And if more consumers could benchmark FICO 9 to other (older) FICO versions, this may be the catalyst for increased market adoption which could translate into more favorable terms for the nation’s credit consuming population.
Yes, I agree with Mr. Wehmann that consumers should accept no less,” Howe concluded.
SubscriberWise was the first organization in the nation to launch FICO 9 (http://www.prweb.com/releases/FICO9/SubscriberWise/prweb12346792.htm). To date, the company has processed tens of thousands of FICO 9 scores for consumers across the nation.
