“We got an answer in minutes as opposed to calling all the trade references on the credit application.”
Putting their years of business credit knowledge together, Credit Management Association (CMA) and Trade Information Exchange (TIE) have produced the anscersX Report, a single report that contains key elements about your customers’ paying habits needed to make most credit decisions.
The anscersX multi-bureau report combines data from the three largest trade credit reporting agencies (D&B, Experian and Equifax), giving credit managers the most complete payment story available.
The report ranges in price from $29.95 to $64.95, depending on the number of reporting agencies the user requests. Users control which reporting agencies are accessed for the report.
"We spent time reviewing all the elements on each provider’s business credit report to determine what would give anscersX clients the best insight into their customers’ credit worthiness," says Robert Shultz, Managing Partner of Trade Information Exchange. "By using an anscersX report, you have covered the necessary bases at a much better cost and a tremendous time savings. The anscersX report provides a quick review of the information needed for most trade credit decisions.”
“The anscersX report offers some real advantages to anyone making a credit evaluation,” said CMA president Mike Mitchell. “Single-source Business Credit Reports are made up of accounts receivable data that has been contributed by companies, public record data and scores generated from the combination of this data. Since most companies that contribute accounts receivable data only send it to one provider (D&B, Experian or Equifax), using one report may only provide a piece of the payment habit story.”
