Credit Engine Supports Experian Identity Verification

Electronic Fraud Detection Powers New Account Applications

The MERit Credit Engine helps developers integrate fraud detection capabilities into custom software applications. Identity verification through Experian NetConnect provides capabilities that are ideal for secure online transactions and call center operations where it is important to authenticate the applicant.

Regardless of whether an e-business is extending an offer of credit, conducting a financial transaction or fulfilling a product order, fraud is a constant challenge. The higher the product value, the higher the risk. The broader the offer, the larger the percentage of fraudulent responses.

Experian Authentication Solutions provide consumer verification by checking individual data elements against known databases. Most online transactions benefit from this reliable verification and standardization system.

The MERit Credit Engine makes it possible for developers to integrate authentication capabilities into a web site, call center or point-of-sale environment.
