R3 Score Expands Available Market and Ability to Accelerate Corporate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commitments
BALTIMORE, MD - (NewMediaWire) - March 8, 2021 - Global Boatworks Holdings, Inc.(OTC: GBBT), ("Global" or "the Company") announces that its operating subsidiary R3 Score has successfully tested a new scoring feature for its AI-enabled, financial software platform which will enable its customers to assess individuals without criminal histories. The testing has occurred over the last 6 months and today the Company is making available this unique scoring capability to those with thin credit files or where traditional tools are unable to assess them adequately. This new score enables the Company to expand its customer base to corporations seeking to meet 2021 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) goals in hiring and access to capital.
“We are committed to ensuring that qualified candidates of all backgrounds gain access to fair and affordable credit as well as employment opportunities which are often determined by someone’s past performance; often without any context to circumstance,” says President & CEO, Laurin Leonard. “Too many consumers are restricted by the traditional methodologies of assessing people who don’t fit the older more traditional models. We believe our tools are more modern and take into consideration all the ways people live, work and exist in these ever-changing times. We are committed to improving financial outcomes for consumers while presenting businesses with more context to make informed decisions all while managing their risk.”
With a use case for both businesses and a direct offering to consumers, the Company is building strategic partnerships to help improve its pipeline to diverse but qualified consumers and talent. Additionally, the Company has several direct-to-consumer offerings in R&D. These offerings on both sides of the market speak to the estimated $189B in annual fees available by bringing millions of Americans into mainstream banking systems online.
“R3’s more contextualized reports enable the company to tap into a broader available market by using better data,” added Leonard. “The Company’s broader vision always included scoring individuals with thin credit or the credit invisible so this is an exciting feature to announce in early 2021.”
Global completed a definitive Share Exchange Agreement with Baltimore, Maryland-based R3 Technologies, Inc. on September 23, 2020.
