Untraceable customers and excessive collection time?
The credit risk generated by the customer portfolio represents one of the main causes of liquidity crisis for a company, up to the risk of approaching commercial bankruptcy even for the most solid companies.
Trade Credit Monitoring is the service designed for customers with exposure: it intercepts any possible risk and enables timely action to protect credit and possible losses.
Information systems collect the information needed for monitoring activities, from external sources (e.g., infoproviders, insurance companies or rating agencies) and internal sources (accounting exposure, past due and payment regularity ratios, qualitative reports).
Credit Monitoring is a BGP service based on a data warehouse that integrates all customer performance indicators (KPIs). It allows intercepting counterparties with potential problems and building worklists to manage potential anomalies.
The intercepted positions are presented in dedicated customer files that enable credit management actions, including approval workflows.
