FICO Launches Small Business Credit Score with Quod in Brazil
Similar to a consumer credit score, the Quod Score PJ PME by FICO converts the SME's credit profile data into a numerical score that is designed to predict the probability of future payment. Based on the characteristics of the company and its partners, it incorporates registration data and credit behavior data to refine the risk forecast - its integrated vision adds value, making analysis faster and more accurate.
The solution can be applied to SME credit products, loans, and leases across the life cycle from acquisition and account management to collections as well as cross-selling.
"As we expand into additional countries, FICO brings a depth of global analytic and scoring experience to enable faster, more precise credit decisions. With the introduction of Quod Score PJ PME by FICO, we continue to safely expand credit access for small and medium-sized businesses in this key region," says
