Smart Select is a credit bureau cascade feature that allows the customer to establish specific criteria which apply to each credit report order. Smart Select will pull a single bureau file first, then apply the criteria (e.g. score 640 or above, No mortgage delinquencies in the past 24 months, etc), if the criteria are satisfied based upon the data in the credit file, Smart Select will add the other 2 bureaus to complete the Tri_merged report.
