Accelerate collections results with alternative data

After the removal of liens and judgments data from credit reporting agencies, companies found themselves in need of other data sources to support their models. Learn how LexisNexis® Risk Solutions offers a product that provides liens and judgments so that credit models don’t have to be recalibrated or altered.


Collections organizations can substantially improve the effectiveness of their recovery and operate at peak performance by leveraging a score that predicts payment of debt. Payment Score is a dual performance score designed to help rank order accounts based on the likelihood that a consumer will make a payment in the next three months and the size of that that payment. Payment Score accesses 33 billion public records built from more than 2,000 sources to provide unique alternative behavioral data insight into a consumer's propensity to repay and then delivers an easy-to-use, actionable three-digit score. Payment Score is compliant with Fair Credit Reporting Act and Equal Credit Opportunity Act regulations.

Payment Score delivers critical insights that drive a stronger, more informed collections strategy:
  • Identify most collectable accounts to collect on the highest percentage of dollars
  • Reduce collections spend by streamlining portfolio management
  • Optimize decisions using analytic technology and comprehensive alternative data insight


Broader perspectives equal better profitability
Payment Score helps predict repayment by providing an actionable score, ranging from 501 (least likely to repay) to 900 (most likely to repay the most dollars).
