Sociogramics launched in 2011 on the premise that existing scores and methods for sorting and assigning consumer behaviors are obsolete in an era of Big Data. We are leveraging emerging data sets coupled with our team's machine learning expertise to fundamentally improve online identity verification and micro-segment probable consumer behaviors across multiple dimensions. Our first target vertical is financial services as it is a data rich environment with surprisingly poor individual-level prediction tools. We are already providing a 10x ROI to our first lending customers as compared to existing services.
Why does this matter? Current solutions are blunt force tools that rely on mass segmentation to bucket individuals together in false cohorts that are used to inform decisions ranging from who receives an offer of credit, who is approved for credit, what types of products are offered and when and ultimately that person's profit potential to the financial institution. The more individual-level information we can make available to our customers the more effectively they can acquire and service new and existing customers = more options, opportunities and better pricing for consumers.
