How would this help?

1) Helps one understand the purchase pattern: Transactional SMS captures beyond overall debit and credit. It can tell you about the usage and frequency of purchase of various products and services by extracting SMS’s from E-commerce, App-based cab, Mobile wallet, OTT etc.

2) Helps you understand the financial profile: Transactional SMS is a rich source of information. It can tell you regarding earning and spending patterns.

  • It’s a tedious, manual, and erroneous task to segment actionable financial profiles from bank statements.
  • Information on transactional SMS: Salary, cash withdrawal, utility expenses, e-commerce expenses, bank balance, number of bank accounts, delayed payments, etc.

3) Gives you information regarding credit & insurance risk vectors: Transactional SMS covers many more indicators beyond credit card and loan repayment delays.

  • Cheque bounce is not covered by most credit rating agencies, but SMS extractor captures this.
  • Delay or default in e-commerce, mobile bill, and other utility payments are not captured by credit rating agencies but SMS extractors can extract that information as well.

4) Inputs about the Income proof: NLP of transactional SMS provides real-time passive way of doing income proof for 100% of the population with bank accounts/mobile wallets.

  • Only 23% workforce is salaried and have income proof document.
  • Present income proof is mostly offline and a tedious process with high fraud risk.
  • Real-time bank statement checks with tools like Perfiose has 70% plus drop rates due to lack of trust in giving critical information also Perfiose can only give a view of the account the person has logged in.
