Thumbnail image for ExperianLogoFF12.jpgLate last year, Experian announced that it had developed a web-based searchable database to help plow through consumer credit data. And now, fellow Finovate alum, Credit.com has put the database to use.

IntelliView uses a representative, 10% sample of Experian's database, which tracks more than 200 million customers in the United States. IntelliView allows searches and queries based on several categories:

  • bank cards
  • retail cards
  • automotive loans
  • first mortgages
  • second mortgages
  • home equity lines of credit
  • personal loans

Credit.com used the web-based query analysis software to create a list of the top 10 states in terms of highest average bank card balance in the third quarter of 2013 (the last quarter for which data was available).

The data for IntelliView is the same as that used by Experian-Oliver Wyman Market Intelligence Reports, which accesses Experian's aggregated quarterly consumer credit data.  The service is available by subscription from Experian.

See Experian's latest Finovate demo here.  Credit.com's most recent demo at Finovate is here.

Notes:

1. We reviewed 255 unique sites. Data was unavailable or irrelevant for 201 sites because: 

  • They had been acquired.
  • They were no longer available online.
  • They were not covered by Compete for various reasons (including some that were not U.S. domestic companies).
  • The number of unique visits was too small to be considered accurate.
  • They were subdomains of larger websites.

2. Numbers have been rounded to three significant digits.

3. The charts include companies that did not have measurable traffic in May 2011, indicated by "N/A."

4. Compete draws its information from the online activity of a panel of more than 2 million U.S. Internet users. It is only an estimate of traffic, and may undercount at-work usage.
