3. WHAT IS THE REPUTATION GATEWAY SERVICE

Reputation Gateway allows users to build their reputation profiles that can be accessed with their permission to grant access to different services thanks to their TrustScore.

Companies can decide in which point of their sales process want users to obtain their TrustScore. For example, they can do it at the very beginning of their current flow to use this score as the criteria to decide if they are eligible or not, or adapt the service's conditions based on that score. They can also use it to help them to decide to accept customers that were initially rejected.

To let users build their reputation profile, companies just need to place a link at their site so they can start the process.

Users will be sent to traity.com where they will be able to register and add the relevant information sources to build their TrustScore and once they finish, they will be redirected back to the company's website, where they will be able to read the user's score through an API call in order to take a more informed decision based on it.
