They all use different info

If they all had the same scores there would be no need for 3. 

REality is that they all track your info differently.  Some creditors only report to 1 or 2, some to all 3.  Hence you get different scores based on different info.  

They are for profit businesses, so they "customize" their services so they are not selling the exact same product. 

as for what you can do about it,  Not much.  Good financial habits will show up on all the CRA's over time.  

Good Luck
