Salary verification

Income Checks

FriendlyScore extracts a number of salary-related insights from transaction data. Many of these can form the basis of important use cases, such as salary verification and affordability assessments. Reliable detection of salary is therefore the crucial factor to ensure such analysis is accurate.

Enhanced Salary Detection

Due to the nuance within, and variety across salary data, standard classification procedures which work well on most other transaction classes become somewhat unreliable when identifying salary. FriendlyScore has resolved this issue using a proprietary modelling framework that uses a dedicated salary detection model to boost salary detection performance and bring it in line with general classification performance.
