MERit Credit Engine Adds ActiveX to Retrieve Credit
GLENDORA, CA, February 14, 2002.
With the addition of ActiveX Objects (COM Object) development and deployment times have been
significantly reduced for MERit Credit Engine users. ActiveX allows the use of most any language
or application to request and integrate credit reports with minimal time and effort. Three-bureau
merged and XML report modules are also available.
The MERit Credit Engine (MCE) satisfies a mission-critical need for companies developing systems
that require credit report data from Experian, Equifax, and/or Trans Union. It operates using a
SQL Server or IBM DB2 database, and allows implementers to retain control of their entire system, without
added per-transaction costs, including merged XML reports.
The MCE requests raw data from credit reporting agencies, parses it to a standard format, and inserts
the subject's file into the local SQL database to simplify analysis and integration. The XML
capabilities take the standardization to another level, allowing the data to be shared by
participants in a loan transaction, within a network or across the Web.
MERit Credit Systems, Inc. (www.creditengine.net) is a leading provider of desktop and server-based
online credit report retrieval software for businesses requiring quick and effective access to
credit information from Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union. Supporting TCP/IP, leased lines,
dial-up, and internet connectivity, including opening multiple simultaneous sockets to each
bureau, delivering thousands of reports an hour.
