Integration of Credit Management and Aggregation helps consumers understand and manage their financial lives
Experian®, a global information solutions provider, and Yodlee, the world’s leading provider of aggregation data and solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to integrate and market their complementary products and services. Yodlee’s permission-based account aggregation service allows consumers to view, access and manage all of their financial accounts on one personalised web page. Experian will offer Yodlee’s solution to customers through its direct-to-consumer channels and Yodlee will incorporate Experian’s credit management tools into its network of account aggregation services.
“Given our mutual clients and the common interests of the consumers we serve, this partnership is a winning combination of business strengths,” said Alton Adams, president of Database Solutions for Experian. “By virtue of this strategic alignment, Experian becomes the first credit information provider to offer this powerful financial management tool to consumers.”
In the first phase of this partnership, Experian will offer Yodlee’s account aggregation solution to its existing direct-to-consumer services at http://www.experian.com and its affiliate sites. The addition of aggregation will provide Experian’s consumer customers with convenient centralised access to all of their financial accounts. Combining the two company’s services will simplify consumers’ increasingly complex financial lives by providing one consolidated view of their entire financial portfolios.
Yodlee will also integrate and market Experian’s industry leading credit management services into its network of aggregation services with leading financial institutions and portals. This enables Yodlee clients to offer their customers seamless access to Experian’s premium credit management services, including personal credit reports, credit scores, debt management tools and extensive credit education. Customers will also be alerted of any new activities on their credit file as a key preventive measure against identity theft.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Experian, the leading provider of credit management solutions that allow consumers to understand and manage their credit history,” said Anil Arora, Yodlee president and CEO. “This, combined with account aggregation, which allows consumers to understand and manage their current financial lives, makes this a best-of-breed solution that allows consumers to most effectively control their financial future.”
