What Is MeridianLink ReadyAssist?
ReadyAssist is an in-app, on-demand personal assistant that offers smart tips with clear descriptions and practical advice to help users navigate MeridianLink Consumer. It’s free and already enabled for admins and end users.
How to Access ReadyAssist
ReadyAssist helps MeridianLink® admins get up to speed on their LOS and configure settings faster. It also helps guide end users through loan applications with fewer errors. Here’s how both user groups can find and use ReadyAssist:
Admins launch ReadyAssist from the top menu of the MeridianLink platform. It’s accessible within:
- Modern Experience and Classic interfaces
- Beta and Demo environments
- Any page with “admin” in the address
In Modern Experience, it’s labeled ReadyAssist, and in Classic it's abbreviated as RA. Both launchers open the same menu. For admins, the ReadyAssist menu has two tabs:
- The Module Essentials tab includes a curated list of walkthroughs organized into two categories: System Setup and System Maintenance. This tab was designed to help new admins configure the system following a structured path.
- The Explore Catalog tab is where admins can search for any ReadyAssist content, including walkthroughs, videos, and knowledge base links.
If you don’t see ReadyAssist in your top MeridianLink menu, it might be blocked by your organization’s firewall. Contact MeridianLink Support to find out what needs to be whitelisted by your IT department.
End User Access
For end users, ReadyAssist is accessible within:
- Modern Experience only
- Beta, Demo, and Live environments
- Applications for Direct Vehicle Loans, Personal Loans, and Credit Cards
End users won’t see a ReadyAssist menu, just the RA icon that launches a walkthrough and the Tip icon, which displays smart tips with a combination of text, images, videos, and helpful links.
All users have the option to toggle ReadyAssist on or off in one click.
