Company Watch becomes new CICM Corporate Partner

Press release – 14 November 2017

Company Watch, the Credit Reference Agency (CRA), has become a Corporate Partner of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM).

Company Watch sees itself as a ‘challenger brand’ among the Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) in the UK, but already hundreds of organisations around the world rely on its financial analytics to drive their credit risk processes.

Jo Kettner, Chief Executive Officer at Company Watch says as the largest professional credit management organisation in the world, the CICM provides an ideal platform to reach credit professionals who are at the forefront of the profession:

“As part of a large professional community, we have the opportunity to talk to many prospective users of credit information so that we are always able to respond to the changing needs of our potential clients and really understand the nature of the problems they face.

“I think our key strength is the robustness of our ratings and our in-house analytics and technology team – we are currently working with a number of clients to support their ability to process their internal data (e.g. payment performance, highest cleared balances) to help refine and enhance their credit and collections processes.”

“Quality and rigour run through everything we do, from our unique method of assessing corporate financial health via our H-Score®, to developing analytics on our customers’ in-house data. Above all, we support our customers to ensure they get the analytics they need in the way they want.

“With the H-Score® predicting almost 90% of corporate insolvencies in advance, it is the risk management tool of choice, providing actionable intelligence in an uncertain world.”
