Credit scoring is based on real data and statistics, so it is more reliable than subjective or judgmental methods. Credit scoring models are complex and often vary among creditors and for different types of credit. To develop a model, a creditor selects a random sample of clients, or a sample of similar companies if their sample is not large enough, and analyses it statistically to identify characteristics that relate to creditworthiness. If one factor changes, the company credit score may change, but improvement generally depends on how that factor relates to other factors considered by the model.
Credit scoring systems enable creditors to evaluate millions of applicants consistently and impartially on many different characteristics. CheckSURE is the most innovative service in the UK to provide this vital and comprehensive information through credit scoring.
