The StubbsGazette corporate scorecards are based on data we gather from:
The credit score, essentially measures financial resilience and regardless of the business sector a firm operates in, it will be the most financially resilient that will last longest, and the financially flimsy that will fail first. If a company’s gearing was on the high side and liquidity was poor when everything was good, it is going to be overly leveraged and liquidity will have gone critical in the post pandemic world, and this is the kind of thing that is reflected in the new scorecards.
Alongside this we are developing a dual Covid 19 Industry Score taking into consideration all the factors described above and expanding our datasets to include CSO and other reliable sources.

REDUCE THE HEADACHE OF FALSE POSITIVES
Local Knowledge Advantage
As most Credit Unions are community based, you will have a very good local knowledge of the special conditions pertaining to the community and the particular circumstances of your credit union. Unfortunately your local knowledge is not replicated on many of the PEP Matching and Screening services that are available in Ireland, resulting in poor matching and far too many false positives.
Existing solutions generate significant and unnecessary amounts of false positives which escalate the need for additional trained staff to process and investigate, pushing up the cost of compliance.
In addition to this, the lack of comprehensive and accurate local data hampers and limits your ability to positively identify and match members who could be considered as higher risks.
To overcome this StubbsGazette have developed a bespoke local CDD/KYC solution for Credit Unions in Ireland.
Our Local Knowledge Experts supplement your local experience to ensure that you have maximum visibility and coverage of PEPs and Special Interest People within your Common Bond.
In addition to our national and international PEP/AML/Sanctions Databases, our Local Knowledge Experts, research and reference local sources with up to date and accurate data which is then matched and screened against your members data to produce better quality results.
Tried and Tested
Many credit unions currently using our service have found that our matching results and rules based scoring increase the positive matches while significantly reducing the false positives and alerts.
Referencing our set of Critical Data Elements allows us to discount false positives at the earliest opportunity which helps reduce the false positives by up to 84% which results in huge operation cost savings.
International research found that working through each alert is time-consuming and complex at an average cost of €25 each time, cumulatively creating a massive bill when a credit union has thousands of members.
A recent batch screening by StubbsGazette eliminated 1,316 false positives when compared to the results of a previous screening undertaken by the Credit Union using a different service. This saved the Credit Union approximately €32,000. Furthermore the StubbsGazette screening resulted in a 300% uplift in positive results from 52 to 156, reducing the possibility of breaches.
Here at StubbsGazette we have partnered with UK technology company Sagacity Solutions, one of only three accredited Eircode providers, to design an Eircode service for Irish businesses. We believe there is substantial value to businesses with large databases of customers in adding an Eircode to their customer files. Doing so prompts business decision makers through statistical messages that help improve planning and logistics.
We would hardly want to offer these services to others without being committed users ourselves so we first asked Sagacity to apply Eircodes to some 500,000 pieces of StubbsGazette detrimental data, such as judgments, bankruptcies, disqualified directors and so on to build a comprehensive picture of the overall debt and credit profile across the country.
From the outset, the use of Eircodes hugely facilitated the data cleansing process, eliminating various anomalies and duplications, before allowing us to append our own data.
We believe the exercise amply demonstrates the power of applying Eircodes to raw data but the potential needs to be recognised by business. This is just a first step into looking at the kind of address/location-based insight and profiling that can be applied with the use of Eircodes that would have been very difficult if not impossible before. The future is not big data but good data.
While the Eircode database runs across some 2.2 million addresses, universal adoption must be the goal and early adopters are likely to reap those benefits in terms of improved customer service, compliance, planning and improved delivery of goods, services and correspondence.
