Earnix Price-It ingests J.D. Power StudyPrice, VIN Precision+ and PIN Navigator data
BOSTON, November 8, 2022 – Earnix, a global provider of mission-critical composable and cloud-based intelligent solutions across pricing and product personalization for insurers and banks, today announced a collaboration with J.D. Power, a global leader in data analytics and consumer intelligence. Together, the two companies offer insurance carriers and auto lending banks and companies the ability to utilize granular and precise information for dynamic pricing strategies.
With API access to J.D. Power auto data assets StudyPrice and VIN Precision+, Earnix Price-It ingests vehicle identification number (VIN) contents, build data, safety, and prevention features, along with vehicle valuation transactional analytics. This offers financial companies dynamic pricing strategies, portfolio profitability analyses, and touchless underwriting along with the rerating and analytics needed to build new models and to execute What-If analyses.
“Outdated predictions for the value of used cars create a need for assessing exposure at a market value level now for new and used cars,” said Marty Ellingsworth Executive Managing Director of P&C Insurance Intelligence at J.D. Power. “In times like this where vehicles are selling for more than base MSRP, vehicles are ‘underpriced’ at the get go. New ways to personalize pricing beyond exposure right-sizing also include gathering the cumulative effects of multiple optional components and features for advanced safety and accident prevention.”
The combined solution allows carriers to refresh vehicle data, batch upload data based on VIN regularly and build the best models utilizing the latest valuation data, superseding depreciation curves. Access to the most granular and accurate information combined with the robust data-science, analytical modeling, and AI capabilities of Earnix Price-It gives users the power to create more informed, competitive pricing strategies by leveraging robust customer data and predictive modeling.
This joint effort empowers auto lenders to leverage the use of J.D. Power PIN Navigator data for increased pricing and personalization sophistication. Today, there is intense pressure on auto lenders to adjust pricing strategies consistently to reflect increased interest rates, competitors’ pricing approaches and customers’ expectations. J.D. Power PIN Navigator data is an indispensable source of market data for lenders as it allows comparisons to auto finance offerings and the agility to fine tune customer options.
“With inflation on everyone’s mind, it is important for enterprises to find solutions to manage it. For banks and insurance carriers, adding vehicle data to machine learning models ensures proper risk alignment and dynamic pricing for their customers,” said Dror Pockard, Chief Strategy Officer at Earnix. “The data integration of J.D. Power vehicle data with Earnix Price-It is critical for carriers and auto lenders to weather the challenges posed by inflation. With more auto lenders providing joint lending and insurance products, the fact that Earnix Price-It can support both in one solution offers a great way to maximize customer lifetime value across both products.”
