For a long time, comprehensive credit reporting (CCR) has been a concept that was very much the domain of credit risk. This outlook is set to change as CCR is applied to business areas other than risk in order to grow revenues, reduce bad debt and improve customer experience. The 2012 market leading CCR pilot study by Veda (now Equifax), the largest of its kind, enabled Equifax to consider all critical factors and gain valuable insights relating to CCR in Australia.
