CreditFix - challenge overview

Manual processes for helping consumers resolve their debt problems were timing consuming and often resulted in an incomplete picture of a customer’s financial status.

4.1m people the UK are currently in persistent debt (source: Stepchange) and average household debt now stands at over £15,000 per household (source: TUC). With 15m living on the ‘breadline’, just getting by each day with their money the potential for consumers to fall into debt due to unemployment, redundancy, injury or illness remains high.

The current process for helping consumers resolve their debt is stressful and timing consuming. It often involves a customer volunteering their financial information to debt advisor or creditor through a telephone interview or by sharing paper copies of their bank and credit card statements.

The process is inefficient, insecure and laborious.

Challenges
  • Processes are stressful and time consuming for consumers
  • Processes are inefficient, insecure and laborious
  • Processes would often result in an inaccurate and incomplete picture of a customer's financial status

By using Experian Affordability Passport, CreditFix can now make more informed decisions on a customer’s capacity to resolve their debt quickly.

CreditFix chose to partner with Experian to deploy its Affordability Passport service. The service allows a customer to consent to share their credit information and bank transaction data with CreditFix automatically.

This information is used to help a CreditFix Debt Advisor accurately assess an individual’s financial circumstances, provide advice on how to modify their behaviour, and re-organise their finances to resolve their debt.

CreditFix use the customer’s credit profile and transactional behaviour to create personalised debt repayment plans, tailored to the individual needs of the customer.

The net result of deploying Experian’s Affordability Passport is 60% improvement in the total amount of money collected on behalf of creditors.
