On March 21, 2013 GDS Eurasia is launching its commercial credit score GDS TKN, developed for the members of the Turkish credit bureau KKB, the largest Credit Reference bureau in continental Europe. The score, which will be available through the KKB platform, was developed by GDS using the wealth of credit and demographic data of all Turkish companies accumulated in KKB over the last few years. GDS TKN will help the Turkish finance sector in terms of enhanced credit decision accuracy, speed and reduced processing cost, thus helping to improve access to credit for Turkish companies, especially SME’s. GDS TKN is deployed using GDS’s proprietary software Decision Engine which is integrated into KKB systems.
