SAN FRANCISCO | May 19, 2022 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time | MeasureOne, the leading consumer-permissioned data platform, today announces a partnership with GDS Link, a global leader in credit data, decisioning and analytics. Through this partnership, MeasureOne’s low cost, automated income, employment, and education verification services will be available to GDS Link’s network of lenders, streamlining the underwriting process, improving instant credit decisioning and diminishing barriers for borrowers.

GDS’s extensive lender base, which includes banks, credit unions, and alternative lending, will be able to plug in to MeasureOne’s unmatched coverage of US payroll providers, employers, and academic institutions, creating an automated and credentialed loan verification experience for borrowers. These lenders will have access to a safer and more streamlined process that enables borrowers to share key data with minimal risk and a reduced number of conditions. With MeasureOne’s consumer-permissioned data platform, GDSLink can quickly and easily expand into the verification of data beyond income, employment, and education, to drive lender growth.

“Reducing and managing risk is our number one priority for our customers, so it makes perfect sense for us to partner with a company like MeasureOne whose solutions provide our customers with the simplest and safest lending experience, “ said Paul Greenwood, CEO of GDS Link. “We’re looking forward to our continued partnership with MeasureOne as we look to identify new data domains that can streamline the underwriting process ever further.”

As financial institutions continue to undergo digital transformations to address consumer behaviors and needs, a lender's growth relies on the safety of their digital transactions. MeasureOne’s consumer-permissioned data model empowers borrowers and lenders alike with automated data sharing of any information that lives in a consumer’s credentialed accounts, via explicit consumer consent.

“Using consumer-permissioned data is the safest and quickest way to inform instant credit decisioning, cutting down on fraud and lender risk, while improving accuracy and time to approval,” says Elan Amir, CEO of MeasureOne. “As we look to the future, we are excited to grow with GDS Link and to deliver data domains at all points of the borrower lifecycle.”

This partnership follows massive growth for MeasureOne, with recent partnerships across industries with BeSmartee, Turnkey Lender, Einstein Higher Edu Solutions in addition to receiving the Systems and Control (SOC) 2 Type II certification. Currently, MeasureOne has over 7,000 data sources spanning multiple geographies, industries and institutions and plans on continuing to scale on all business fronts throughout 2022.
