Omnisient’s Case Study: Unlocking Credit Access Through Innovative Data Use
Omnisient was selected as a finalist by a panel of data leaders from internationally recognised brands who have all been recognised for their own outstanding achievements in the DataIQ 100 or DataIQ Awards.
The case study submitted by Omnisient for the judges’ consideration this year demonstrated how the Omnisient platform was used by a large grocery retailer partnering with leading banks to calculate credit scores using shopping behaviour to predict loan repayment. This enabled the banks to calculate credit scores for 8 million individuals lacking credit history and identify 3.2 million among them who now qualify for affordable, life-changing credit who would have previously been denied.
Anton Grutzmacher, co-founder of Omnisient, was present at the award ceremony and shared, “It’s such an honour to be recognised by a prestigious panel of data leaders for the impact our platform is having on society. The calibre of judges and of companies selected as finalists further affirms that our technology is addressing global needs at a global standard.”
