Athena for Payer and Credit Risk Management

You’ve collected data for years. How are you leveraging it to limit future risk?

Aviana’s advanced AI analytics risk models help you:

  • Learn patterns from your historical AR/collections data to tell you which borrowers will most likely pay.
  • Predict settlement and recovery amounts so you can forecast cash flow much more accurately.
  • Score and rank future borrower risk against true historical patterns for your customers in your markets specific to your financial instruments and offerings.

Managing Credit Risk

Managing credit risk refers to the strategy of protecting an organization from loss due to a borrower’s failure to make payments on any type of debt. Beyond helping you with risk profiling which helps mitigate future risks, Aviana’s AI analytics models also help you reduce the debt you are currently carrying by scoring and selecting which borrowers will more likely pay and how much of a payment will be recovered. You can then more accurately model and forecast settlement cash flows.

Aviana’s Analytics Models

Aviana’s analytics models learn from your historical data to find trends which will help your team recover debt much more quickly. We help you rank which borrowers you will most likely recover from as well as predict how much you will recover. You can then more efficiently deploy resources by prioritizing which borrowers to zero-in on first.
