We understand your pain
The DIY option seems simple. We know – many of our clients tried it before partnering with us. What they didn’t realize at first was that you need to:
- Develop the software
- Fill out the paperwork to apply for approval to pull the relevant credit reports
- Spend hours coordinating with bureaus for testing in various phases
- Ensure you remain compliant with complex regulations (failure to do so could get you permanently banned from accessing any credit data in the future)
… and then repeat the entire process for the other two bureaus.
Even putting the risks aside, doing all these yourself will cost you plenty of time, energy, and effort. We have personally seen our clients take months just to get past compliance when going it alone. Think of the opportunity costs – wouldn’t you rather spend that time growing your business?
We do the heavy lifting – you reap the rewards
Your business has its own unique value proposition. This is ours – helping you access the credit data you need in the fastest and most cost-efficient manner possible through our proprietary API. But that’s not all. When you work with us, you get:
A Single Point of Access
All the data you need from a single user-friendly API. One source, one insertion order, and one streamlined process.
Education on Relevant Regulations
The Fair Credit Reporting Act is currently 115 pages and almost 40,000 words long. Even small missteps can trip businesses up and risk them getting permanently barred from accessing future data. Our vast experience in this area helps prevent you from making such business-killing mistakes.
Assistance in Navigating Integration Landmines
Integration may be a simple word, but the process can be anything but. We will work closely with you every step of the way to help you navigate all the common technical “landmines”.
Continuous Compliance Support
Compliance is not a “once and done” thing. Even after a successful integration, businesses must keep a close eye to ensure they stay within its sometimes-hazy boundaries. We provide continuous education and post-integration support to ensure you don’t accidentally step out of line.
You’re 3 steps away from receiving streamlined credit data
Replace expensive, tedious, and manual data pulls with a simple and streamlined process thanks to our industry-leading CreditAPI. Or better yet, learn from other’s mistakes and skip all that hassle in the first place by coming straight to us.

Q. What types of credit data can I access through your CreditAPI?
We can give you access to a wide variety of reports, including: credit scores, income score models, income verification data, asset verification data, bankruptcy and lien data reports, business credit reports, self-employment verification, and business identity reports.
Such data is highly useful for many industries such as:
- Landlords and property managers: Strengthen your tenant screening process and reduce your chances of getting stuck with bad and combative tenants
- Bankruptcy attorneys: Free up your time, handle a larger case load, and help more people
- Automotive lenders: Turbocharge your background checking process by cross-referencing data from all three credit bureaus
- Consumer lenders: Ensure you only approve qualified borrowers. Maximize your returns and minimize your risk
- Investment/Asset managers: Can only accredited investors access your products? Credit data – plus our fraud verification and detection products – can ensure your onboarding qualification is streamlined and robust
- Marketers: Quickly filter and segment customers, as well identify potential upsell and cross-sell opportunities
Q. Can you help me get approval from the credit bureaus?
Yes – that is a core part of our offerings. Once you finalize your contract with us, one of our friendly customer support managers will get in touch to request some simple documentation. We will use that to perform a complete analysis of your business to validate your permissible purpose for accessing credit reports.
Q. Will I have to retrain my team to lean an entirely new process?
You won’t need to overhaul your existing processes to get access to instant credit reporting. The whole idea is to increase your efficiency – not make things more difficult. Our products provide intuitive shortcuts that make obtaining and analyzing credit data faster and easier than you have ever done before. Your team will thank you for it.
Q. Can I make both hard and soft data credit enquiries?
Yes, you can make both hard and soft credit data enquiries through our CreditAPI.
Q. Can I access credit data without having to go through integration?
Yes, the choice is yours. You can choose to access the data through our convenient web portal instead. We will provide you and your team with login credentials.
Q. Doesn’t Equifax already have an API?
Yes, Equifax does indeed have an API. But you will be limited to only Equifax data. On the other hand, by integrating with us, you will get access to Equifax’s credit data as well as TransUnion and Experian – all through a single API.
Q. How long will it take to integrate the CreditAPI into my software or CRM process?
The speed of your integration will vary depending on your set up. If you are using a supported CRM platform, you could be up and running overnight thanks to our turnkey solution. A custom integration could take a little longer.
But fear not. While the integration is ongoing, you will still have immediate access to the credit data you need through our web portal. During your free consultation call, one of our experts will advise you on the estimated time integration would take for your software and workflow.
Q. How much will it cost to integrate Credit Reporting Services into our processes?
The cost of your integration will depend on your needs and current set-up. We offer competitive pricing with enterprise-level support, with no monthly minimums for most of our products. One of our team members can give you a cost estimate during your free consultation call.
Q. Do you provide integration and development support?
We work closely with your developers to integrate our tools with your platforms. We also have an extensive library of resources and documentation to help ensure a pain-free integration process. And even if you do not have your own developer, we can help you outsource the integration of our tools. You will also have access to 24-hour customer service at every point along the way.
Q. Do you provide ongoing customer support?
To us, integration is just the beginning. We are committed to helping you succeed at every point in your journey. Just because integration is complete does not mean we stop providing you with world-class customer support. All our customers have a dedicated point of contact as well as access to a 24-hour contact line for instant customer support.
Q. I’m not getting a response from the credit bureaus – can you help?
Here’s the good news – you won’t need to deal with the credit bureaus at all! Our customer service department will handle all direct communication with the credit bureaus internally, so you can spend more time on what really matters – your business.
