Credit management is about allowing businesses to grow profitably: done right, credit management can transform businesses.
Use the best tools
Making credit decisions in strong economies, when companies aren’t failing is easy. In times of uncertainty, where the fortunes of customers can change quickly, having the best tools available to inform your decision-making can safeguard your business.
We provide the tools that allow you to make evidence-based decisions and to justify these to your key stakeholders.
We are transparent
We believe in making our analytics transparent and easy to understand – headline scores for quick decisions and easy drill-down for those risks where more detailed analysis is required.
Stress-test the impact of failure
Use the Experiments tool to produce a ‘what if’ scenario and stress-test a supplier or customer’s financial health using their management accounts or forecasts. Generate updated scores immediately and see which companies are most financially vulnerable.
Analyse the words in financial reports and predict financial distress
Use TextScore®, our machine learning tool, to analyse the text accompanying financial statements to provide a more current dimension of risk assessment.
Save hours on document review
Reduce time spent reading accounts documents as part of your critical risk review and use our unique SearCHeD tool instead, which allows you to search individual documents digitally, or even search across a portfolio using keywords and phrases.
Receive real-time email alerts
Learn about changes in circumstances and financial health, which could increase your risk and could result in a change of contract, with customisable email alerts that set the parameters important for your business, such as a 10 point change in the H-Score®.
We help our clients manage their strategic business relationships, giving them scores that look at a medium-term forecast, and the tools to allow them to look even further into the future.
We provide ‘white box’ scores, which allow you to make evidence-based decisions and justify these to key stakeholders in your organisation.
Being able to model scenarios and understand ever-changing risk has never been more important. We give you the tools to do that.
With tools like Aphrodite®, SearCHeD, TextScore® and our Furlough data matching, we allow you to investigate risks thoroughly in minutes.
