If you are a lender wishing to offer a real-time decisioned credit solution based on machine learning algorithms, then CogniFrame is the partner for you.
CogniFrame is a machine learning platform offered as “Cognitive as a Service” that combines experimental data with multiple data elements provided by clients to deliver predictive analytics for real-time decision making. The platform uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to find anomalies and patterns based on historical and real-time data and combines those with behavioral and social media data to support decisioning on credit applications.
Offered under a SaaS model, the CogniFrame platform is very affordable but meets the stringent security requirements of financial institutions. Lenders can use the platform to offer real-time credit solutions- loans, lines of credit, mortgages, trade credit, etc.
Unlike standard lending models that depend entirely on credit scores, we help lenders make decisions in scenarios where credit history is unavailable.
CogniFrame uses an alternative method that combines adaptive learning with personal and business application data into one simple easy to use model that helps you make instant decisions on credit requests from new clients. Our rating models are dynamic and client ratings are constantly updated as repayment information is received.
Being a CaaS solution, our Machine Learning is not limited to data from any one source. It learns from all data across client segments.
