Through its industry-leading PDT®, ScoreNavigator is Artificial Intelligence (“AI”), Scientific, Algorithmic and Mathematical Software, based on rigorous credit weighted algorithms, that analyzes credit data to identify where the impacts are placed on a credit file. The software analyzes a digital version of a credit report and assigns a point deduction number per trade line item, both positive and negative. The numbers assigned reflect the number of credit points recoverable depending on the type of accounts being reported – whether the account is in good or derogatory standing. The software also determines where most errors occur on a credit report and how many points may be recovered by correcting the credit data. The software examines a consumer’s credit report from Transunion and/or Equifax and provides the consumer with a credit analysis and prescriptive action plan to recover valuable points before applying for credit. PDT’s unique and proprietary ability provides MyMarble with the ‘best in breed’ solution for consumers to monitor and maximize their positive creditworthiness. Know before you Go.
47% of respondents to an October 2019 survey conducted on behalf of insolvency firm MNP said they do not believe they will be able to cover their necessary living expenses over the next year without increasing their debt. The COVID pandemic and the current macro-economic environment has further exacerbated this problem. Canadians need access to credit to manage their daily life and expenses not to mention unforeseen emergencies and longer-term planning. These Canadians are challenged, and many excluded from obtaining low-cost, affordable credit because of poor credit scores.
According to a recent survey, 78% of Marble customers said they seek improvement to their overall finances through intuitive and user-friendly technology. Most of these customers were also reluctant to seek credit from traditional lending institutions due to the embarrassment of poor credit scores. The growing trend has resulted in a large market of underserved Canadians turning to more holistic apps and websites to improve their credit and overall finances.
