Costa Mesa, Calif., April 4, 2013 — Experian®, the leading global information services company, today announced that Linda Haran, director of product management and strategy for Experian Decision Analytics, is being honored with Mortgage Banking Magazine’s Tech All-Star Award for the development and introduction of Experian’s IntelliViewSM product.

The company’s new interactive, Web-based query, analysis and reporting tool enables financial professionals to optimize strategic planning, uncover new opportunities and improve decision making by having 24-7 online access to Experian’s aggregated quarterly consumer credit data. Data is available for seven lending categories, including bankcard, retail card, automotive, first mortgage, second mortgage, home-equity lines of credit and personal loans.

“We are thoroughly impressed with the ease of use and depth of information that is readily available via Experian’s IntelliView product to help mortgage banking professionals improve their strategies and make better business decisions,” said Janet Reilley Hewitt, editor in chief, Mortgage Banking Magazine. “This innovation by Linda Haran and her team at Experian has truly contributed to the field of mortgage technology and earned her a well-deserved spot in the 2013 Tech All-Star class."

IntelliView data is sourced from the information that supports the Experian–Oliver Wyman Market Intelligence Reports and is easily accessed through an intuitive, online graphical user interface, which enables financial professionals to extract key findings from the data and integrate them into their business strategies. This unique data asset does this by delivering market intelligence on consumer credit behavior within specific lending categories and geographic regions.

“We are extremely proud of Linda and her team’s accomplishment for being recognized as a Mortgage Banking Tech All-Star,” said Charles Chung, president of Decision Analytics North America at Experian. “Linda’s leadership and the team’s ability to make all the reports available online through IntelliView is game-changing. By utilizing aggregate credit data that has been predefined into the appropriate product and analytical groupings, IntelliView takes the pressure off of an organization’s internal resources and allows more time for analysis.”

Only seven people received Mortgage Banking Magazine’s Tech All-Star Award in 2013. Haran’s successful 11-year career at Experian also is highlighted by the 2005 launch of a patent-awarded Web-based product that provided key insights through data on mortgage and home-equity products. In her current position, she leads a dedicated team in packaging and executing solution sets that encompass analytics, consulting and software capabilities based on market trends and client needs.
