SMB Lender Averts $7 Million in Dollar Losses and 40% in Unit Losses with GDS Link Analytics

After GDS Link’s Analytical and Advisory Services

Over the years, our solutions have helped clients receive an average 25% increase in loan volume and 35% reduction in loss and fraud. A SMB lender operating in multiple countries needed to reduce risk while simultaneously approving more businesses, including those which typical credit data indicated were high risk. They needed a solution that could transform bank account transactional information into insightful attributes and scores, helping them swap in new customers at existing portfolio fund rates and fund amounts without increasing risk.

With ModellicaPro Analytical Services, the lender was able to reduce dollar loss rates up to 45% on a per account basis, and overlay expert rules with the new SMB scores, aligning payments to the best day and estimating cash flow amounts that were most likely to have successful payments. By the end of the 12 month period, they were expected to have averted ~$7 million in dollar losses and 40% fewer unit losses. Furthermore, they had even greater potential for further savings as they utilized data sources in a continuous loop of improvement.
