Another fantastic win for GBG and our customers

A post by Nigel Clark, General Manager for ID Verification at GBG.

On the evening of the 12th May, GBG won 'Best Anti-Fraud & Verification Technology' at the Credit Today Awards 2016 in recognition for the fantastic work that we do with Vanquis Bank.

Vanquis is a leading provider in subprime credit, but the customers it serves are not always on the Electoral Roll or feature in credit data – making their identity verification and fraud detection particularly challenging.

Used alongside Vanquis’ other verification and anti-fraud measures, the combination of GBG ID3global, GBG Connexus and GBG Matchcode360 gives Vanquis a uniquely powerful capability in onboarding new customers and investigating possible fraud. GBG’s bespoke reporting at an individual customer level helps prove regulatory compliance and provides a base for the most robust lending decisions.

Access to GBG’s unique mix of consented credit and non-credit reference data along with market-leading match technology means Vanquis has maximum confidence that its customers are who they say they are, and has been instrumental in helping Vanquis to consolidate and extend its market lead.

In addition to this, we were also highly commended for 'Best Data & Analytics Technology' in conjunction with Zinc Group which is fantastic news.

The awards we win both with our customers as well as in our own right are a testament to the talented people we have here at GBG and the strength of relationships we have with our customers. Long may it continue.
