Customers Vote TransUnion as Credit Information Partner of the Year for Third Time

TransUnion, one of the UK’s leading credit reference agencies, has been voted Credit Information Partner of the Year in the Consumer Credit Awards, for the third time consecutively.

The awards are based on customer feedback, placing the information and insights company as the UK’s industry leader of choice, and highlighting TransUnion’s strengths in customer service, relationship building, product innovation and credit education.

Satrajit “Satty” Saha, CEO of TransUnion in the UK said: “We’re delighted to have been named as Credit Information Partner of the Year for the third time in a row. We’ve supported our clients – and the consumers they serve – through challenging times as the UK navigates ongoing financial uncertainty, so this means a lot to us. Retaining this recognition is also a reflection of the continued dedication of our teams, both in building relationships and creating innovative new products to address changing consumer needs. A huge thank you to all that voted for us.”

TransUnion supports businesses across a range of sectors, including financial services, retail, gaming and insurance, to deliver the best outcomes for their customers. TransUnion also works with a number of partners – from leading banks to credit score service providers – to give consumers free access to their TransUnion credit report and score via its CreditView solution.

“We aim to make trust possible between businesses and consumers, so we’re thrilled to be called out by our customers as a trusted partner in the feedback shared,” said James Robinson, TransUnion’s managing director of consumer interactive. “We’re committed to helping businesses and consumers benefit from the insights that credit information can provide and have seen great success working with our partners to help even more people across the UK better understand their credit information, to support financial wellbeing as well as driving greater financial inclusion.”

Feedback shared from customers that voted in the awards also highlighted TransUnion’s work to drive financial education in wider communities, citing: “TransUnion makes a proactive effort each year to not only partner with clients on all things credit, but also to educate them and others in the community.”

In the past year, TransUnion has extended its credit education initiative to schools nationwide, as well as universities, teaching young people about credit information with its Credit Scores Explained programme.

The Consumer Credit Awards are run by Smart Money People to increase trust and transparency in financial services, by giving consumers and clients the chance to have their say.
