Driving greater predictive power to help you harness macroeconomic changes.

The Empirica scores leverage sophisticated modelling techniques, extensive data exploration, and the most predictive variables to bring you a next generation score that is compliant with South African consumer credit regulation. By statistically analysing constantly evolving consumer behaviour and associated risk patterns, we enable lenders to improve risk management decisions across the credit lifecycle.

The Empirica score, which is designed to predict future credit performance for lenders across a broad variety of industries, consists of two score systems: one for Account Origination (AO) decisions and one for Account Management (AM) decisions.

Empirica is easily integrated into your credit decisioning environment and allows you to streamline operational processes and optimise efficiencies.

Empirica provides the strongest possible risk assessment for today’s consumer credit behaviour.
