Model and Data Development
Go live in weeks.
You won’t need to buy specialized data or hire a small army of data scientists. ZAML Silver uses the data you already have to build and train a model – and then will deliver you a report assessing the potential impact on your business. And you’ll pay nothing until the model is put into production.
Seamlessly integrate ML-based scoring into your existing IT and business processes.
ZAML Silver’s plug-and-play implementation will not disrupt your IT roadmap. It’s so simple that it can be easily configured by your existing IT team. You can simply flip a switch on your LOS to go live.
Satisfy all regulatory and risk management compliance requirements.
ZAML Silver is built with model risk management in mind and provides comprehensive documentation. It also takes advantage of industry-leading explainability technology, so that you can have full confidence that your model is operating safely.
Manage the IT and security burden.
ZAML Silver eliminates your responsibility of managing the powerful and highly-reliable servers required to operate ML models. We do it for you. And because ZAML Silver is hosted in the cloud, it will comply with the latest encryption and security compliance standards.
Access our world-class team of technology experts.
ZAML Silver experts will be there to assist you at every step of the process – from the moment you start onboarding your data to when the model goes live. You’ll also have access to 24-hour support should any issues arise since we know your institution’s core business is on the line.
How It Works
ZAML Silver uses your existing data to build a customized model specifically for you.
You’ll be asked to upload data from a number of common sources, including: • Application data and outcomes data from your LOS and LMS • LexisNexis • RiskView Credit bureau data with full tradeline information • Experian Clarity
Hosts the model on secure servers on the cloud.
ZAML Silver reduces IT complexity, strengthens resiliency, and provides an intuitive web-based interface. It also ensures you are embracing the latest data encryption and security standards.
Deploys the model and provides unlimited risk scores.
Once your ZAML Silver model is put into production, a web service will produce an ML-based, credit decisioning score in less than a second. That score can be easily integrated with your LOS to approve new loans or assign pricing based on your credit policy. It will also provide you with accurate key factor reason codes such as those used for adverse action notices.
Delivers regular model performance reports.
ZAML Silver continuously validates and tracks your model’s performance. You’ll receive both economic and risk assessments, including a model risk management (MRM) report, expected of your internal risk management and audit teams. All of this should give you confidence that your model is operating safely.
Monitors your model and refits it for free.
ZAML Silver’s monitoring dashboards show you the model is operating as expected, even as underlying applicant pools or market conditions change. ZAML Silver’s tools can detect subtle shifts that can significantly impact the model’s results and alert your team when a refit is recommended. Just like your initial model build, rebuild anytime for free.
Win the ML Adoption Race
A recent Fannie Mae survey of 184 mortgage lenders found that executives at smaller financial institutions were less likely than those at large ones to say they will broadly roll out AI/ML solutions in the next 2 years.
