Consumer Life Cycle

Origination Decisions

Origination Decisions manages the real-time processing of applications, based on the subscriber’s policies and risk strategies. The key objectives of the module are to manage applications using well defined policies and strategies, calculate affordability and automatically allocate facility amounts, terms, pricing conditions and verification requirements.

ODM includes 4 Management Areas which ensure that only high-quality applicants are granted immediate approval, whereas marginal applicants are carefully scrutinised, and the correct information is fully verified:

  • Application Scoring & Affordability
  • Bureaux Management
  • Applications Management
  • Fraud Prevention

The highly flexible Origination strategies can contain a combination of 4 different components:

  • Rule Sets – help to group business rules governing a function
  • Decision Trees – pool of over 150 decision variables available
  • Matrices – used to calculate or assign values in a strategy
  • Functions – perform computation or decision logic

Account Decisions Module

Account Decisions automates the control of existing customers based on their current risk, affordability and spending levels.

ADM has a menu of 5 optional management areas, which ensure that all aspects of the consumer life cycle are co-ordinated via a consistent set of champion/challenger strategies.

  • Behaviour Scoring & Affordability
  • Bureaux Management
  • Communications Management
  • Delinquency Management
  • Limits & Pricing Management
  • Pre-Delinquency Management

The Behaviour Scoring Management Area can calculate an unlimited number of score types including attrition, behaviour, collections, propensity to spend, response, and recoveries.

Bureaux Management can be used to champion/challenge multiple credit bureaux and assign different accounts to different bureaux, based on the client’s policies and strategies.

The Communications Management Area manages marketing to existing customersusing sophisticated decision variables, which comply with a client’s risk appetite.

The 2 Delinquency Management Areas control arrears through proactive pre-delinquency strategies, and appropriate delinquency tactics when the consumer is in an early or late stage of arrears.

Limits and Pricing is focused on spend stimulation, determining consumers’ affordability, authorising temporary over limit positions and calculating scheduled credit limit adjustments.

ADP can also be  configured to automate, calculate and manage the affordability requirements that may be mandated by any national credit legislation.
