Equifax is launching 3 challenges open to the Fintech-startup community for the innovation of new products, services and strategic corporate areas.
They are looking for solutions across five verticals, with the aim of integrating the latest technological innovations into their current business model.
VERTICAL 1: FRAUD PREVENTION AND SECURITY
Equifax is looking for any solution, platform, tool, product or service which helps to fight against fraudulent activity and financial crimes. Innovations will also be used to support existing security measures that protect operations, transactions, provide risk assessments and assist with the prevention of money laundering, tax fraud and any associated consequences.
Ultimately, this challenge aims to improve the prevention of risks and to mitigate the threats posed to financial entities, their clients and users.
VERTICAL 2: SMART CONTRACTS
Equifax is seeking blockchain solutions for the following:
- Improving the user experience and eliminating friction with the onboarding process
- Providing security and tracking of contractual processes
- Document management
(New solutions, automated and efficient processes, alternatives for compliance and requirements of financial institutions and their customers).
VERTICAL 3: SOLUTIONS FOR SME’s AND FREELANCERS
Equifax is looking for SME specific solutions that also cater for the needs of freelancers and individuals classed as self-employed, as well as emergent business models.
With this in mind, it aims to identify new opportunities for both SME´s and the freelance community in order to offer value-added services to these stakeholders.
This can be achieved through a platform, tools or products which add information, plan and automate services, facilitate the day-to-day running of this sector, or that can predict needs on a technological level.
VERTICAL 4: DATA ANALYSIS
By launching this challenge, Equifax aims to find technological solutions in the market that enable the entity to process, analyse, summarize and manage large amounts of data and information in order to increase efficiency and to be able to leverage maximum value.
Given the above, the origin and generation of the data, as well its quality, is essential in allowing Equifax to approach data analysis in an innovative way. Similarly, the aim is to transform this data into predictive models that will help with providing greater customisation of products and associated services to make the best strategic decisions.
VERTICAL 5: ALTERNATIVE CREDIT SCORING
Equifax launches this challenge with the aim of acquiring a greater insight and understanding of their clients in order to obtain a graded and defined profile that allows for the personalisation of opportunities tailored to each user. This will help to adjust the offer, categorize and cluster segments, reach new customers and disruptive models, as well as being able to refine, optimize and debug financial risks through alternative sources of information and new credit scoring rules.
This approach intends to address advanced risk management for the acceptance of new credits and financial products and to manage scoring in real-time through “Apification”. The goal is to integrate these tools with the onboarding of the user, guaranteeing that their digital identity results in a suitable Know Your Customer (KYC).
