Updated Platform Provides Advanced Analytics from Dragnet Solutions to Cane Bay Partners VI, LLLP for Clients’ Loan Decisioning

NOVATO, CA, March 3, 2015 – Dragnet Solutions, Inc., a provider of real-time account screening solutions for financial institutions and retailers, announced today that GDS Link, LLC, a global provider of customer-centric credit risk management and process automation technology, has integrated Dragnet Solutions® Accelerated Insight(SM) into its DataView360® Platform.

Financial institutions and lenders use Accelerated Insight to verify the identities and personal data of account applicants. The account screening and verification solution automatically segments loan applicants to the most appropriate products based on risk and likely profitability.

DataView360 delivers a flexible platform that is easy-to-use for loan underwriting. The GDS Link Platform provides enterprise-wide process automation, data access and data aggregation, model implementation, and a rules engine. The GDS Link product suite offers flexible solutions that afford its customers independence from the constraints of internal IT resources.

GDS Link has integrated a special data feed from Accelerated Insight, enabling GDS Link customers to more accurately assess the riskiness of new loan applications. The integration will enable GDS Link customers to offer loans with a higher degree of confidence in a profitable result.

“By integrating Accelerated Insight into DataView360, we have further optimized the platform’s ability to identify profitable populations for loan originations,” said Paul Greenwood, President of GDS Link. “Accelerated Insight’s real-time data analytics enables our customers to verify applicant data with greater accuracy and to predict profitability by defining risk thresholds along a continuum of results from applicant screening. Applying the insights of the Dragnet Solutions service will enable our customers to operate more efficiently and profitably.”

Cane Bay Partners VI, a global management firm, is the first GDS Link customer to make use of the DataView360 platform integrated with Accelerated Insight.

“Successful loan-decisioning depends on data analysis that is fast, accurate, and insightful,” said Kirk Chewning, a partner at Cane Bay Partners VI. “The data provided by Accelerated Insight highlighted areas of opportunity for our clients which we have found to be highly predictive. We expect the intelligence delivered via Accelerated Insight to help our clients grow their businesses, and maintain their continuity to the real-time decisioning from the DataView360 platform.”
