How can Higson help your business?

A better approach to customer segmentation.

Customer segmentation is a critical aspect of any successful business strategy, but it can be a complex and time-consuming process without the right tools. That's where a business rules engine comes in.

Higson helps businesses to build highly personalized products that meet customer expectations. By leveraging the power of a business rules engine, you can segment your customers faster and more accurately.

A credit score can be used for various financial products, such as mortgages, private loans, credit cards, or car loans.

Using Higson, lenders can assess an applicant's creditworthiness by performing complicated calculations in real-time.

Higson enables developers to externalize complex business logic such as scoring rules. This logic can be modified by developers or business experts in Higson. Each modification is immediately shown in the application.

Businesses need a platform that allows employees to add all the relevant variables and data points, and most importantly, make changes to prices as soon as new circumstances arise.

A solution that can, for instance, calculate market demand, inventory levels, and seasonality, and then set prices accordingly.

Higson is an effective tool that helps companies dynamically price their products and services. Non-technical users can make instant changes to complex pricing rules. All this without having to rely on the IT department for help!
