The case study submitted by Omnisient for the judges’ consideration this year demonstrated how the Omnisient platform was used by a large grocery retailer partnering with leading banks to calculate credit scores using shopping behaviour to predict loan repayment. This enabled the banks to calculate credit scores for 8 million individuals lacking credit history and to identify 3.2 million among them who now qualify for affordable, life-changing credit who would have previously been denied.

Anton Grutzmacher, co-founder of Omnisient, was present at the award ceremony and shared: “It’s such an honour to be recognised by a prestigious panel of data leaders for the impact our platform is having on society. The calibre of judges and of companies selected as finalists further affirms that our technology is addressing global needs at a global standard.”

Omnisient

Omnisient is on a mission to help grow financial inclusion by enabling ethical, secure, and regulatory-compliant data collaboration and monetization between financial services and consumer businesses.

More than 1.7 billion people globally lack access to formal financial services that can financially protect them and unlock access to housing, education, healthcare, and even capital to start a business. This is because banks and insurers lack behavioural information on these individuals, and therefore cannot confidently offer them access to their services at low risk.

Our technology is changing this by enabling them to access new sources of consumer information in a secure and privacy-compliant way.

Omnisient’s privacy-preserving data collaboration platform enables financial services businesses to easily and securely collaborate with the other business their consumers engage with to better understand and predict consumer behaviour – while ensuring that consumer privacy and company IP are always protected..

Established in South Africa in 2019, Omnisient is enabling more than 80 leading banks, insurers, retailers, and health and wellness organisations in Africa and the Middle East, to build Consumer Data Ecosystems that grow their businesses exponentially through new revenue streams and consumer understanding while driving positive change for individuals and society.
