APPLIQATE TO LAUNCH COMPSCORE AN ALTERNATIVE CREDIT SCORE

APPLIQATE, INCMay 28, 2019

LEHI, Utah, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Appliqate, (APQT) a Wyoming Corporation, announces a strategic partnership with R3 Score Technologies, Inc a Delaware company, headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland. As part of the partnership, R3 Score will design and white-label a credit alternative score - CompScore exclusively for the Appliqate network.

The CompScore product is expected to release in pilot form initially. “We moved in this direction after surveying some of the entrepreneurs and business owners within our network. It was through the surveys we discovered the need for alternative and more contextualized credit scores,” says Darren Olayan, CEO of Appliqate. R3 Score seemed like a perfect partner as they had already developed risk algorithms and were deeply focused on financial inclusion for harder to serve populations. We are confident in their ability to adjust their algorithm to ensure all of the members of our network can be properly assessed. Our teams are working together and anticipate launching CompScore this quarter.”

R3 Score is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business solution tailored for the 1-in-3 Americans living with a criminal history. The risk index has wide case business use to include an ability to serve as a credit alternative product. “Although the product was designed for people living with a criminal history, we knew our product could also serve mainstream consumers. By partnering with Appliqate we have the ability to not only take our product mainstream but to explore Blockchain as a method of delivery.

Many lenders believe that alternative credit data allows for greater participation of more consumers who are willing to expand access to other data points to increase their chances for funding approval. We believe the future is Blockchain and we are committed to bringing greater financial products and services by way of this emerging technology. We are on a mission to bring transparency and greater access to all consumers, Olayan expounded.
