About The Event

Introducing Experian’s new Sigma Commercial Score

Unlock the power of predictive business credit decisions


Join our webinar on 15 November 2023 to learn about our all-new Sigma Commercial Score, designed to enhance your credit decision-making process and predict your customer’s propensity-to-pay.


Sigma Commercial improves the performance levels and predictive power of our commercial score incorporating data from CIPC, our researched data, judgement data, tradeline data and aggregated consumer risk data on linked principals.


This webinar will provide you with insights on how Experian’s Sigma Commercial Score enables you to make quick, confident, and consistent credit assessments.


What sets Sigma Commercial apart?

  • New Target Definition: Sigma Commercial predicts a different target definition of “bad credit”, enhancing the precision of your credit assessments while ensuring you receive more accurate insights.
  • Revised Segmentation: Sigma Commercial classifies companies into three distinct segments based on available bureau information. These include Non-SME (businesses with a turnover greater than R8 million, a staff complement exceeding 500, or Limited Business), SME (businesses with a turnover of less than R8 million and 500 or fewer employees) and Non-Researched (businesses for which turnover and employee data are unavailable)
  • Granular Scores:  Sigma Commercial provides more granular scores that lays out a better distribution of data. In addition to the 1-100 risk band index, Sigma Commercial provides a scaled score for deeper insights.
