Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX), a global information solutions provider, and Valeyo, a leading solutions provider of insurance products and technologies are excited to announce a strategic partnership to integrate Equifax’s verifier solution, Verification Exchange™ into Valeyo’s proprietary loan origination solution.

Verification ExchangeTM is an income and employment verification solution that provides instant verifications between employers and verifiers, delivering speed and confidence in the income verification process. It securely provides verifiers, such as lenders, with current income verification from employers, reducing the dependency on applicant-provided information.

This solution is integrated into Valeyo’s Loans Origination System (LOS), CRIterion; strengthening the lending process by providing secure and accurate income verification to help accelerate decisions and identify potential fraud of unsupported declared incomes. This solution also improves the user’s experience, with a quicker, end-to-end approval process, so applicants can obtain the credit and services they need with fewer delays.

Verification ExchangeTM is compliant with Canadian laws including privacy legislation. The solution helps to reduce fraud and mitigate risk throughout the entire verification process with automated system workflows, built-in compliance and requisite permissions.

“The integration of income verification within CRIterion is a first in Canada and we’re excited to partner with Equifax to bring this solution to our partners,” says Nicole Benson, CEO Valeyo. “We are focused on delivering the right technology and solutions that deliver instant results while mitigating fraud and believe this integration gives our partners a competitive advantage in an increasingly regulated market.”

Adds Vanessa Giuliani, Vice-President, Workforce Solutions Canada, “providing instant access to income verifications is having a transformative effect on the market in Canada. The launch of this industry-first integration with Valeyo is an important step in the journey to improve income verifications for consumers and lenders alike.”
