    THE DOCUMENTATION YOU WANT; THE SIMPLICITY YOU NEED

    Responding to consumer disputes in a timely, accurate and complete manner has always been a top priority for the credit-reporting industry. In mid-2013 we will be rolling out a new feature that will allow the Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) to provide Data Furnishers (DFs) with images of applicable original documents that the consumers provided with their disputes.

    ALL RELEVANT INFORMATION

    The current e-OSCAR system has a free form field that the CRAs use to convey the relevant information ("all relevant information") that the consumer provided along with his or her dispute. The new e-OSCAR document image feature will allow the CRAs to provide Data Furnishers an image of the relevant documentation. We believe that this option will enhance the dispute process for the CRAs, DFs and consumers.

    SAME FAMILIAR E-OSCAR

    Aside from the new document image feature, nothing else will change. e-OSCAR will have the same look and feel, and it will operate the same way it has in the past.

  2. March 6, 2013 Communication

    THE DOCUMENT IMAGE e-OSCAR ENHANCEMENT WILL BE HERE IN MID-2013

    As announced on February 1, 2013, e-OSCAR will implement a document image feature in mid-2013 that will allow Consumer Reporting Agencies to provide Data Furnishers with images of relevant documents that consumers furnish with their credit disputes. Nothing else will change about the way you use e-OSCAR.

    HOW YOU CAN GET READY

    As we get closer to the launch of the new document image feature of e-OSCAR, we want to keep you informed of developments and of what you can do to make sure you are ready for the coming enhancements to the system.

    During the coming weeks, watch for information about the following:

    • the document image feature,
    • the image format,
    • archives and reports, and
    • system requirements and suggested configurations.

    This information will be provided in the format of e-mails and newsletters.  The newsletters will be available in the Enhancement section of the e-OSCAR website.

    QUESTIONS

    The new e-OSCAR document image feature is part of our efforts to enhance the dispute process for consumers, Consumer Reporting Agencies, and Data Furnishers. If you have questions regarding this future change to the e-OSCAR application . . .

         Please contact the e-OSCAR Help Desk at 866-696-7227.
