SAS® Credit Scoring for Banking
As any credit manager in the banking industry knows, controlling risk is a delicate business. Too much credit exposure can lead to high default rates and charge-off percentages; too little exposure often means lost business and revenue. SAS helps banks manage this balancing act with SAS Credit Scoring for Banking, which provides fast, accurate credit scoring for nearly all consumer-lending products.
There is a wide range of strategies for measuring the credit worthiness of new and existing customers in the banking industry, but many of them have serious limitations. Outsourced strategies can lead to long development cycles or high annual expenditures. Makeshift in-house scoring strategies often lack the ability to access necessary data for accurate scoring, leaving credit managers with no effective way to identify how much potential income or loss rides on their decisions.
A lack of streamlined reporting can also prevent managers from disseminating this vital information to employees in a timely way.
SAS Credit Scoring for Banking combines SAS' award-winning data management, analytic and reporting capabilities to provide a powerful in-house credit scoring solution. This solution allows lenders to develop, validate, deploy and track credit scorecards faster, cheaper and more flexibly than any outsourcing alternative.
