“After a year of using TransUnion via our LoCTA Hub Licence, we have reduced our Credit Reference searches by 26% and the cost by 35%.  We’ve achieved this via the exclusive 4 for 1 searches that MAG:NET secured with TransUnion.  The users and contracts are all maintained by our Account Manager at MAG:NET, which means we can roll all of our tracing needs into one easy contract.”

Linda Cooper, Assistant Head of Revenues and Benefits, Bolton Council

“Wakefield were CitizenView users for many years..  We have since moved to TransUnion, via LoCTA.  The feedback the team have given is that the TransUnion reports, via LoCTA are very comprehensive.. The best thing staff say about them is the layout – it’s easy to follow and understand.”
