ICM launches Credit Services Directory

6 September 2010

The Institute of Credit Management (ICM) has recently launched Cr£ditWho?, a fully searchable directory of product and service providers, aimed at giving credit professionals and businesses needing advice an easy route to the right solution.

Seen as an important service from the ICM as the trusted source of information, both for its Members and UK businesses in general, Philip King, ICM Chief Executive believes: “Keeping the cash flowing in a business is vital, but knowing who to turn to and being able to trust that supplier is equally important.

“The ICM is at the forefront of the industry and we believe that this directory will be the one stop shop for a credit department in need of some advice, or a company wanting urgent help with its outstanding invoices.”

Cr£ditWho? is another addition to the ICM’s increasingly comprehensive range of solutions for the credit management industry, and it is proving to be an offering that many ICM Members and businesses are keen to be involved in. It has the backing of Founding Partner of Business Change Partners, Chris Sanders, who comments: “The ICM is in a good position within the industry to launch this directory. We feel that the ICM brings a guarantee of quality, so when people look at the directory they know they will be put in touch with a reputable supplier.”

CreditWho?’s search function makes it easy to use, with clickable website and email links, as well as company and product descriptions which direct visitors in the right direction.

The directory is available on the ICM’s website, and on ‘Credit Management Matters’, the ICM’s portal for the wider business community at www.creditmanagement.org.uk.

Those choosing to advertise in the directory also have the opportunity to be included in the series of BIS/ICM Managing Cashflow guides, which have been downloaded over 170,000 times by small businesses. Entries in Cr£ditWho? and the guides are limited to those business who are members of their appropriate trade or professional body, where applicable, and entries are subject to a maximum of two guides reflecting their product or service areas.
