Current economic conditions have increased pressure on companies trading on credit terms. With continuing concerns over the impact of unexpected levels of bad debt, companies need to fully understand their credit risk profile and ensure they have sufficient balance sheet and cash flow protection. Strong and effective credit risk management is essential to protect and promote business growth.
For companies with branches or subsidiaries in different regional locations or countries, there is the added risk that inconsistent credit management procedures can lead to a lack of awareness of your overall exposure to customer failures or politically unstable markets.
