As we noted in our previous newsletter, GDS Link has formed a new credit risk and analytics consulting group dedicated to helping lending businesses navigate their risk management challenges. For a portion of our customers, rising delinquencies and increased regulatory pressures are two areas that are requiring greater focus. In order to help our customers with these challenges, we will be releasing two webinars dedicated to providing actionable information around predictive model compliance and optimal collections strategies. This will be the beginning of informative webinars we will be releasing periodically, and we certainly welcome your input on potential topics for the future.
In addition, GDS Link is excited about its recent release of advanced analytics tools, including Assisted Segmentation and Optimization. The GDS Link Assisted Segmentation tool allows a user to easily design a tree segmentation based on data-driven objectives, such as bad rate and profitability. Our Optimization Technology is designed to identify the best decision for a given business problem, given a series of business objectives and constraints. In addition to these, we offer predictive modeling and data source analytics, plus portfolio management strategy design and support across a range of credit and marketing lifecycle areas.
