The NACM National Trade Credit Report (NTCR) officially launched its Preffered Partner Program at Credit Congress last week in Grapevine, TX.
The Preferred Partner program is designed to help eliminate some perceived technical obstacles to using and sharing information with the NTCR initiative and its database. The partners will be working with interested NACM members and their clients to optimize the interface and ease information extraction and reporting for the report.
The founding members of the program are Billfire, CreditPointSoftware, Cforia, CMS (Credit Management Systems Inc.), Forseva and High Radius. Workflow A/R also is a valued partner of the program.
The NTCR illuminates elements such as credit scores, trade payment data and oft-requested “days beyond terms” statistics among tools drawn from a growing database fed by more than 10,000 businesses and 1,000 trade groups nationwide. The report website (http://www.tradecreditreport.com) is now live and designed to educate potential users by providing information on various aspects of what is included in the reports, viewable samples, downloadable brochures and links to help find NACM affiliates selling the NTCR, among other features.
