Data, analytics and technology converge to create better customer experiences
Farmington Hill, Michigan – August 28, 2019 – 700 Credit, LLC, the automotive industry’s leading provider of credit reports, compliance solutions and consumer pre-qualification products, today announced a collaboration with Equifax for their QuickQualify web-based platform. QuickQualify Xpress utilizes Equifax identity data and uniquely differentiated data sources to automatically prefill applications, which reduces keystrokes for a more frictionless customer experience.
QuickQualify Xpress asks only for a zip code and last four digits of the consumer’s SSN, before automatically populating the consumer’s demographic information. In the mobile environment, QuickQualify Xpress helps mitigate risk by authenticating the user’s identity before requesting further information.
“QuickQualify Xpress is a natural evolution of our soft-pull technology”, said Ken Hill, Managing Director of 700Credit. “Our QuickQualify product is the first step in reducing the amount of data consumers need to provide before a soft-pull prequalification can be executed. QuickQualify Xpress further minimizes the data required from a consumer for pre-qualification, enhancing their experience with the platform and maximizing consumer engagement. 80% of consumers are shopping from a mobile device before they enter the dealership. This tool makes it even simpler for a consumer to start the pre-qualification process.”
“Generation Z has only known a digital world, and they are predicted to outnumber Millennials this year,” said Lena Bourgeois, vice president, enterprise alliances, Equifax. “This collaboration with 700Credit will help dealers stay current with today’s buyers by simplifying digital interactions, providing instant identity results and minimizing the frustrations often associated with digital abandonment. Collectively, the convergence of data, analytics and technology can improve dealer outcomes across the digital interaction ecosystem.”
