Credit Account Origination Systems Vendor Review: Beyond Cards

Research Explores New Developments in
Credit Card Account Origination

Credit Account Origination Systems Vendor Review:
Beyond Cards

Boston, MA Financial institutions and credit card issuers are just beginning to catch up from the compliance marathon they've completed and more sprints are looming. Growth opportunities for credit card issuers have stalled and risk models are being recalibrated across the lending spectrum. Within the dynamic and unstable market, credit applications still have to be decisioned.

Mercator Advisory Groups new report Credit Account Origination Systems, Vendor Review: Beyond Cards, examined is the manner in which credit card origination and decisioning systems are developing as a next generation mix of multi-account, multi-function user-enabled toolsets designed to support complex and comprehensive acquisition and account assessment strategies.

"As we've seen in other segments of the payment card industry, solution providers have not been standing still waiting for the market to tell them what to do. Almost every company we spoke to for this report has or is undergoing major new version updates to their existing systems and/or announcing new product alliances." states Patricia Hewitt, Director of Mercator Advisory Group's Debit Advisory Service.
