Point Deduction Technology® is Scientific Analytical Mathematical Software, based on rigorous credit weight algorithms, that analyzes credit data to identify where the impacts are placed on a credit file. The software analyzes an electronic version of a credit report and assigns a point deduction number per item, both positive and negative. The numbers assigned range from 0 to 100+ depending on the type accounts being reported. The software also determines where most errors occur on a credit report and how many points may be recovered by having the credit data corrected.
Our software analyzes the electronic version of a credit report and recommends the quickest way to achieve a credit score and to achieve the score needed for loan approval. Its proven recommendations are based on the understanding of credit score calculations and how different factors affect scores either positively or negatively.
Our software analyzes a member's total credit picture based on the data reported by the bureaus. Each section on a credit tradeline has important factors used in determining your score. The combination of a member's total credit picture as well as each individual item factors will determine positive or negative changes. The items will be marked clearly on each tradeline from 0 to 100+.
The accuracy of our recommendations is based on several factors. The information on a credit report has to be current, complete and correct. A credit report is a snapshot in time of a person's credit history. If too much time elapses between the date of credit report and Score-Up's analysis, then the report no longer gives a current picture of the credit situation and our analysis can be less accurate.
If the data on the credit report is missing information or contains errors, this too will affect our ability to make accurate recommendations. In this instance, Score-Up uses the most probable default for missing or inaccurate data. In this situation, we will still generate recommended action steps although those may be less accurate than ones with complete and correct data.
Score-Up will provide updated reports and scores monthly to give you the opportunity to look for accuracies. You will see your score change, the new point deductions, and recommendation on how to recover more valuable points.
Our Credit Scores may be the most important range of numbers that you don't understand. Score-Up was created to help consumers become more aware of their credit scores. Our credit scores drive nearly every facet of our lives. Obviously it is of most importance with acquiring a new mortgage, re-financing, purchasing an auto or other property, but many of us forget that it can determine employment, home and auto insurance rates, security clearances, and much more.

The data on a credit report comes from companies with whom a borrower has established credit. These include mortgage companies, credit cards, retail stores and others. They are supposed to report your credit activity monthly to one or more credit repositories. Unfortunately, they do not always do so.
The information reported may be inaccurate. For example, a balance being shown on an account, even after it is paid off - or the credit limit can be too low or show accounts being paid late when they are not. Derogatory accounts that have been closed or written off may also remain on a credit report beyond the legal period of time, normally seven years.
The data on a credit report may also contain information about accounts that do not belong to you. It may contain information about others who have a similar name or you may unknowingly be a victim of identity theft.
The credit repositories also make mistakes that contribute to these problems. The same account information may be posted twice as separate accounts, or in some cases, may be missing certain accounts that should be present.
The rules used to determine a credit scores are so complex, it is virtually impossible to figure out the impact of trade lines on the total score using pencil and paper.
